CUL Team Recognition Award
This award was created in 2002 to acknowledge the efforts of people working as teams within Central University Libraries, which have previously gone unrecognized. Teams must be cross-divisional within CUL, but may also include staff from other University libraries. Teams must consist of three or more members. Teams must have displayed exemplary service to CUL by their co-operative efforts to achieve the team goal(s). They can be either permanent ongoing teams or ad hoc committees charge with a specific task. The prize for the winning team is lunch at a restaurant of their choice. Nominations will be reviewed by members of the CUL Leadership Team. Nominations can be submitted by any CUL staff member, including members of the team being nominated.
