Our poster competition was a great success, with LLS staff contributing 12 posters in total. The competition was open to all staff, and we received a mixture of first-time creations and reports on large-scale, funded projects.
Thanks to all our contributors, and congratulations to Heather Dimmock, Yvonne O’Connor and Jenny Spokes, who won the competition with their poster on the department’s digitisation services, The DAISY chain.
The competition was judged by Simone Apel, the university’s training co-ordinator for research programmes, who said:
The overall standard of the posters was fabulous and I had a hard job choosing just one! They were all well-written, interesting and looked great – lots of work, time and thought had obviously gone into every one of them. And it’s nice to know that many aspects of the Poster Training Workshop were remembered & exploited 😉
Our thanks to Simone for her help, and also to Jenny Townend for printing duties.
