CILIP Awards 2006

We have just learned that Telos has made the longlist for the 2006 ISG (CILIP)/Bookdata Reference Awards with not one but three titles! Since 1970, the Reference Awards have recognised excellence, promoted awareness of outstanding reference books and products, encouraged quality and set industry standards.

The CILIP awards will be judged by an expert panel of judges over the next few weeks and the shortlist will then be announced. The winners will be presented with their awards at a special ceremony on 18 April 2007 at the Library and Information Show.

Administered by the Information Services Group of CILIP and sponsored by Nielsen BookData, the leading supplier of bibliographic information, the awards were open to works first published in the UK between 1 January 2006 and 31 December 2006.

Judges will assess the nominees on:
* authority of the work and the quality and kind of articles and entries
* accessibility and arrangement of the information
* scope and coverage
* style
* relevance and quality of the illustrations
* quality of indexing
* adequacy of the bibliographies and references
* currency of the information
* physical presentation
* originality of the work
