Ian McCracken award, CILIPS. £500 for service innovation and £350 for individual achievement.

CILIPS have kindly been donated money by former CILIPS Trustee Ian McCracken. Ian served for a number of years on CILIPS Board, several sub-groups and is an Honorary Member of CILIP Scotland. Ian has kindly donated £8,500 which will be used to provide annual awards for CILIPS members over the next 10 years, starting in 2024. The full details of the Ian McCracken award process will be communicated next year but will take the form of two awards – one for service innovation (£500) and the other for individual achievements (£350).

Head of CILIPS Sean McNamara said:

“the CILIPS team and Board would like to thank Ian for this incredibly generous gesture that will help reward achievement in the library sector. Ian has been a long time advocate for and supporter of libraries and CILIPS and this is hugely appreciated.”
