CILIP Libraries Change Lives Award 2016 

Entries are open for the CILIP Libraries Change Lives Award 2016

The CILIP Libraries Change Lives Award is the highest accolade a library service in the UK can win. CILIP is seeking applications for 2016 from UK-based library, information and knowledge-based services or initiatives that have a positive and demonstrable impact on their user community.

Entries are welcome from any sector such as education, prisons, health, Government, private companies and public libraries.

Please consider applying if you are a practitioner representing library and information services or initiatives which can clearly demonstrate the value added to their organisation or community and which reflect innovation, intelligent service design or best practice delivery.

Three finalists will be selected and a £4,000 prize will be donated by CILIP to support the continued delivery of the winning service.

Entries are open from 1 March to 30 April 2016. Applicants must be UK based and eligible services or initiatives must be current and ongoing during this year in order for the judges to assess the entries in action.
