The banquet was glittering. At least I had on glittering gold, and there were lots of silver glitters as well. So the big news, from my perspective, was the Lifetime Achievement Award to Carol Tenopir. Not only was it well deserved, it went to an American rather than a European, emphasizing the international focus of the Online Information show. The second award that I personally had a connection with was to Mary Peterson of Australia, a frequent speaker at Internet Librarian International, for Chasing the Sun, a virtual reference service in collaboration with SWICE (the UK National Health Service South West Division) and SAHSLC (sorry, don’t know what that acronym stands for entirely, but it’s from south Australia).
Wow! I’m thrilled!
