All of you old-skool readers may remember this post about a very successful inspection of the Orkney Library and Archive.
Well, the inspection has led to a Scottish Library Excellence award from the Scottish Library Information Council (SLIC). Hoorah!
Our Library and Archive manager is travelling down to the awards ceremony which, inexplicably, shall not be televised, to accept what we hope shall be a solid gold, jewel encrusted trophy. Some manner of crown and sceptre set I should imagine. His speech is prepared, Cheryl Cole-style epaulets have been affixed to a spangly jacket and the dance routine has long been perfected and memorised.
The archive department did particularly well in the assessment, scoring 6 out of 6 for generally being a completely brilliant local studies collection.
