<> GreyNet Award
Recipient 2017, Dr. Dobrica SaviŠ, NIS-IAEA

 <> Testimonial by
Dominic Farace, GreyNet International in Rome, October 22nd 2017

Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to call upon Dr. Dobrica Savic known by
many of us as 'Dobie' to come up and join me.

Dobie, if my memory serves me well, we met at an ICSTI meeting in Paris in
2012. That following year you took on GreyNet Associate membership for the
Nuclear Information Section of the International Atomic Energy Agency.
During the past five years, you have left a 25 year imprint on this
organization. One of your first steps was to call out a workshop on grey
literature for your staff in Vienna. You took a leading role in drafting,
promoting, and assessing the Pisa Declaration on Policy Development for Grey
Literature Resources. And, you were instrumental in its multiple
translations. You have since consecutively served on GL Program Committees,
acted as Conference Moderator, and you are the current Chair of GreyNet's
Resource Policy Committee. GreyNet can always count on and welcomes your
professional advice both solicited and unsolicited. Dobie alongside these
many policy and managerial functions, you have contributed numerous articles
dealing with grey literature - incorporating your vision as well as the work
accomplished with the INIS collection, which is a true paradigm for other
grey literature communities. You are always willing to review articles
others have drafted including some of my own; and on occasion I have been
able to reciprocate. This is a clear example of the review process of grey
literature. While it may not be double blind, it is with both eyes open to
improvement - that to which grey literature communities strive. Dobie you
are a true colleague and a tremendous asset to our organization. On behalf
of all us here this evening, I present you with the GreyNet Award 2017.
