SCOOP Vice-Chair named Scottish Library and Information Professional of the Year

We’re very pleased to announce that SCOOP’s Vice-Chair Fiona Laing, who is Curator of Official Publications at the National Library of Scotland has been named Scotland’s Library and Information Professional of the Year. Fiona was presented with the award on Monday at CILIPS annual conference by Michelle Elkington from Bolinda, who sponsored the award. The nomination recognised Fiona’s work on the Scottish School Examination Papers Digitisation Project, the Legal Deposit programme and her invaluable contributions to SWOP and SCOOP.    

Fiona’s achievement was covered by The Bookseller (which sadly doesn’t mention SCOOP, SWOP or the Government Information Group)!
