DEADLINE EXTENDED for FLICC 2001 Awards!
Due to the unusual circumstances of this fall, the FLICC Executive
Board has approved an extension for the FLICC Awards for Federal
Librarianship. Faxed nomination forms must now be received by 5:00 p.m.

The FLICC awards program encourages excellence by recognizing
outstanding federal libraries, information centers, librarians, and
library technicians. All federal libraries and information centers,
practicing federal librarians, and library technicians are eligible for
these awards. The nominees must demonstrate outstanding, innovative, and
sustained achievements during Fiscal Year 2001.
The FLICC Awards Working Group will review the nominations and submit a
list of finalists to the FLICC Executive Board for their final
selections. The award winners will receive a certificate and plaque
honoring their contributions to the field of library information service
at the annual FLICC Forum on Federal Information Policies in Washington,
D.C. on March 19, 2002. FLICC will also cover any travel costs for the
award recipient and library manager.
By presenting three awards, FLICC acknowledges the value of the
contributions and individual efforts of the diverse federal information
community. The Federal Library/Information Center of the Year award
recognizes the federal library or information center which demonstrates
outstanding, innovative, and sustained achievement in Fiscal Year 2001
in its level of fulfilling its organization's mission and meeting the
needs of its defined user groups. The Federal Librarian of the Year
award recognizes a federal librarian who demonstrates active and
innovative leadership and professionalism in the promotion and
development of library and information services. The Federal Library
Technician of the Year award recognizes a practicing library technician
who demonstrates exceptional technical competency and flexibility under
changing work conditions.
