Building Better Communities Awards Program Goes International in 2007

We enter our second year of these awards that highlight role models for us all. It’s also great fun to present some cash to deserving libraries.
Building Better Communities Awards Program Goes International in 2007
Feb. 1: SirsiDynix’s Building Better Communities Awards program for 2007 is now accepting nominations. After an enthusiastic response with 130 nominations last year, SirsiDynix has expanded the program to include six client library organization recipients that will receive US$10,000 each based on creativity and accomplishments in serving their communities.
For the program’s first year, nominations were accepted for libraries from anywhere in North America. This year, however, the program has expanded to accept nominations for SirsiDynix libraries in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Asia and Pacific regions, as well as the Americas. In response to the larger number of eligible institutions, SirsiDynix has expanded the number of awards to six.
Award recipients will be announced at the American Library Association Annual Conference in June. An independent panel of library leaders from around the world will select award recipients and finalists. Any SirsiDynix library worldwide whose technology leadership has distinguished it in service to its user communities is eligible.
To participate in the nomination process, visit the Building Better Communities page and complete the nomination form by Monday, April 16, 2007.
Nominate yourself. Nominate another. It’s a nice thing to do.
