University of Warwick wins award

A new feature for this year’s conference is that some of the winners of the International Information Industry Awards are announced and presented just before a session and not all of them during the gala dinner.

The Jason Farradane Award was awarded today to a team at the University of Warwick for its work on the Learning Grid. The Grid is a facility located within the university library which provides equipment from scanners and document visualisers to electronic whiteboards, video-editing facilities, networked pcs and video cameras to assist student learning as individuals and in groups.

The Farradane award is named after one of the pioneers of information science, who founded one of the first information science programs at what is today, City University, London.
