We are pleased to announce that Virginia Hamwela from the Copperbelt University Medical Library, Zambia is the winner of the HLG/ILIG/Phi International Award. This award was established by Health Libraries Group in 2012 and is run in partnership with CILIP’s International Libraries Group (ILIG) and Partnerships in Health Information (Phi). It is is aimed at health librarians working in a country served by the WHO’s HINARI scheme to low income countries. It will enable Virginia to attend HLG’s annual conference in Oxford in July and additionally to follow a short programme tailored to her particular professional interests.
