Joint winners of the IFLA Professional Unit Communication Award 2016
So many Units are currently working to improve their communication and were therefore nominated this year that the jury struggled to select just one winner. As a result, the Professional Committee awarded two Units, both selected because of the variety of platforms adopted, innovative approach and creativity, collaborative attitude, and efforts in reaching out to professionals and other audiences both inside and outside the IFLA community.
The achievements of both Units should be inspiring for other Sections and Groups within IFLA when looking to improve their communication strategy.
You can read their nominations to find out more about why they were selected and to see their winning work:
The PC also recognized a third runner-up: the Knowledge Management Section. This Unit has made an effort to use different tools to strengthen the knowledge base of their professional sector and reach out to experts from outside the IFLA community through a wiki-style portal which they plan to develop and a completely renewed newsletter. We’ll be watching progress with this.
