CILIP Cymru Wales Team of the Year 2020
We are very excited to announce that we have been jointly awarded the CILIP Cymru Wales Team of the Year 2020.
Dr Anton Saayman, Director of Educational Improvement and Governance, HEIW, said: “The NHS Wales Library and Knowledge Service has been pivotal in providing vital information to support the NHS Wales response to Covid-19. Additionally, it has ensured continuity of its high level of service and support to NHS users, including our trainees and trainers in Wales, throughout this challenging time.”
Susan Prosser, Library Services Manager at Swansea Bay University Health Board and Chair of the NHS Wales Library Service, who nominated the service, said: “As a network of 24 libraries based in hospitals across Wales, NHS Wales Library and Knowledge Service has responded to the challenge of the Covid-19 pandemic by supporting healthcare staff and keeping library services and spaces available for users.
“As well as collaboratively developing a new single point of access for service provision, the libraries have also contributed to good practice for adapting workplaces and library spaces.”
We're sharing this amazing achievement with Newtown Area Public Libraries.
