As I mentioned in an earlier post, there were/are several library related events going on during the months September – December 2016. Last week I was very much pre-occupied with events involving the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Ghana (CARLIGH), including a meeting, training organized by publishers EBSCO and Cambridge UP and the 2nd CARLIGH International Conference which took place here in Accra from 28 to 30 September. See the GNA website for their story on the opening ceremony.
Regrettably therefore I missed the latest Burt award ceremonies which took place last week – but I am glad to acknowledge their efforts! The winners were:
- Dr Ruby Yayra Goka, for her book The step-mother
- Elizabeth-Irene Baitie, for her book Rattling in the closet
- Nii Kpani Addy, for his book Red spectacles knows
For more information on the event, see the GNA story (even though it is not totally accurate)!
