F A Sharr Medal

Earlier this year I nominated for the F A Sharr Medal, and I was presented with it at the ALIA Click06 Conference on 22 September 2006.

"The F A Sharr Medal is an award given to the graduand who exhibits the most potential; the one most likely to have a positive impact on their preferred stream of the library profession.

It is named after Francis Aubie (Ali) Sharr, state librarian from Western Australia from 1953 to 1976, in recognition of his contribution to libraries and librarianship in this state and to the profession.

The award was inaugurated in 1976 when the first commemorative medal was presented to Mrs Jean Ryding, a Western Australian student of librarianship. ALIA West makes three annual awards to a graduand librarian, teacher-librarian and technician. The most outstanding of these award winners is presented with the F A Sharr Medal."
