NAG makes an annual award designed to promote excellence, original thinking and innovation by a library or individual within the field of Acquisitions. The NAG excellence award is in its fifth year and is awarded at NAG annual conference. The award is sponsored by Nielsen Book, the leading provider of discovery, commerce and research services for library and library suppliers.
This year’s National Acquisitions Group (NAG) Award for Excellence has been won by Nottingham Trent University for their pilot service to streamline acquisition services for the benefit of their students.
The Nottingham Trent University pilot scheme aims to provide final year undergraduates and taught postgraduate students with the titles they need, when they need them, to support their dissertation research. Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive with comments such as “amazing”, “great service” and “fantastic” being used and steps are now being taken to transition the scheme into a core part of the Library’s service.
