It was great to see so many Librarians and Information Specialists in Bournemouth.
Unfortunately only one of you can take home the Kindle Fire, but I hope all booth visitors enjoyed finding out more about Gold for Gold and what we are doing about Open Access, as well as seeing the UK launch of The Merck Index* Online.
Back to the business of the Kindle Fire, I am delighted to announce that the winner of our Buzzwire Competition (involving 45 steady-handed librarians), in a staggering time of 17 Seconds, was Claire Gravely, Information Resources Advisor, University of Surrey.
Top 5 Times:
|1 Claire Gravely, University of Surrey, UK||17 Secs|
|2 Monica Crump, NUL Galway, Ireland||28 Secs|
|3= Jessica Eustace-Cook, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland||29 Secs|
|3= Marie Barwick, University of Warwick, UK||29 Secs|
|5 Dag-Even Torsoe, BI Handelshoyskolen, Norway||32 Secs|
Look out for an equally challenging competition in Harrogate next year – perhaps involving a different skill!
