2012 NEFLIN Library Awards

The NEFLIN Board recently had the difficult task of working through many outstanding nominations for the 2012 NEFLIN Library Awards. In fact they had to choose two award winners from one of the categories because of this. 

We'll have more on our award winners and all the nominees at the NEFLIN Annual Meeting on September 14.
