We are pleased to announce that the winner of the Leading Light Award is…
Hazel Roome (University of Derby).
Here are a few words from our winner;
“Thank you so much for this award and to those who voted for me — it was very unexpected! The Night of the Hungry Hungry Robot was a collaborative effort between the library and our University of Derby Online (UDOL) department and the result is a great resource which impacts the student experience at the University of Derby. More importantly, it helps facilitate information literacy development and usage of our online resources. I am very proud to receive this award and be part of such an amazing project.”
Hazel donated her prize to Cancer Research UK.
