Awards for Libraries that Improve Economic Wellbeing

EIFL’s ( Electronic Information for Libraries ) Public Library Innovation Programme (EIFL-PLIP) has launched its first innovation award call- for libraries offering services that use ICT to improve economic wellbeing of the community.

The call is open to public and community libraries in developing and transition countries. The deadline is May 31, 2012. The prize is US$1,500 and the opportunity to present your winning service at an international conference or event.

EIFL-PLIP is accepting written applications in four languages-English, Russian, French and Spanish. To encourage greater participation , libraries also have the opportunity to tell their stories in their own language through video. However, the videos must have subtitles in English.

The award is the first of four EIFL-PLIP Innovation Awards. The upcoming awards are for public and community libraries working in the areas of health, social inclusion and open government.
