A press release from CityLIS states: “The winning submission was a comic strip on ‘The future of the document’ prepared by CityLIS student, Cathi Woods.  The award judges said:

“This was a very appealing cartoon-style presentation.  It embodies part of the principle of varied document types and provided an engaging experience.  The storyboard approach was well constructed and provided a coherent synthesis of many relevant concepts.”

“Excellent: original, and very well carried out”

“The jokes are great.  A lovely use of humour to explain a serious and critical topic”

“This could be developed into a useful educational tool”

The Department of Library and Information Science at City, University of London are very pleased that there is such strong support for the next generation of information professionals to become actively involved with CILIP.  It represents a great opportunity for early career professionals to network more widely and to bring their own fresh perspective into the profession.

The winner will have the opportunity to present a poster at the Annual Conference.”
