UKeiG is pleased to announce that the judges have chosen two winners for the 2014 Jason Farradane Award. They are Professor Blaise Cronin and Lucy Tedd.

Blaise Cronin is currently the James H. Rudy Professor Emeritus of Information Science at Indiana University and an Honorary Professor at City University, London, while Lucy Tedd has just retired from the Department of Information Studies, Aberystwyth University. Both winners have demonstrated excellence in the education and teaching of information science and both have raised the profile of the information profession in a way which has become an exemplar to others. Both are deserving winners of The Jason Farradane Award.

Professor Cronin was appointed, at age 34, to the Chair of Information Science at the University of Strathclyde, where he was instrumental in raising the profile of both information management and information science throughout the UK. In 1991 he left Glasgow for Bloomington, Indiana when he was appointed Dean of the School of Library and Information Science. He held this post with distinction for almost 20 years. He is an active researcher, whose research focuses on collaboration in science, scholarly communication, bibliometrics, citation analysis, the academic reward system and cybermetrics, i.e. where information science and social studies of science intersect. He has also consulted widely.

Professor Cronin's 30 years of innovative research and teaching, coupled with his demonstrated leadership in the fields of information science and information management, make him an eminently worthy winner.

Lucy Tedd, an internationally recognised figure in the field of library management, has been involved with computer systems in libraries since the early 1970s - having been amongst the first undergraduates in the UK to study Computer Science. Later that decade, following a period as Researcher in the College of Librarianship Wales (CLW), she was appointed as Part-Time Lecturer, a post that she held until her retirement in 2013 from the more recent manifestation of the College - the Department of Information Studies (DIS) at Aberystwyth University. She was a committed and highly effective teacher and supervisor at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and, demonstrating commitment to information science education above and beyond her academic remit as Lecturer, she acted as Director of the International Graduate Summer School during the 1990s. Lucy has always engaged in research, and has been a prolific author of research and professional reports, articles, and books; she has spoken at conferences and courses in many countries including Argentina, Australia, Brunei, India, Kazakstan, Laos, Lebanon, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Thailand as well as in European countries.

The nomination and the judges felt that Lucy should be acknowledged and rewarded for her sterling work as an international advocate for the information profession throughout her career, both within education and in the wider library and information profession.
