NAG makes an annual award designed to promote excellence, original thinking and innovation by a library team or individual within the field of Acquisitions.
For 2021 the winner will again receive £200 plus £100 as a donation to their nominated charity. The prize will be paid directly to the individual (not their Institution/employer) however if there are multiple people involved in a project, unfortunately you will have to split the money between yourselves. You will also benefit from a free seminar/conference place both to have the NAG Award presented and as a presenter at the following year’s event to share your work.
The NAG Award for 2021 has been won by Helen Hall, Inter Library Loan Principal Library Assistance in the Acquisitions and Document Delivery Department, at the University of Liverpool. This award recognised the enormous impact on national inter-Library loan (ILL) practices by introducing HE Libraries to a new subscription model that challenged the traditional transactional form of interlending.
