ISG Reference Awards

Running since 1970, the Annual ISG Reference Awards acknowledge the importance of both print and electronic sources by recognising and rewarding the work of those who create these important reference works. Since 2012 there is also a category for Special Interest reference items.  This year the award was for Information Resources for Young People, and we were very pleased to have members of the YLG helping in the promotion of, and judging, for the Special Award.

The Group also presents the Walford Award to an individual who has made a significant contribution to the information world.  

For previous winners and titles up to 2010, see the archived listing.
