Happy end of the year, Heavy Medal followers.
This is a reminder that on Wednesday, January 2nd, our Heavy Medal Award Committee deliberation will commence. The nineteen members on HMAC will introduce and debate the eighteen finalists following the schedule below. All Heavy Medal readers are invited to share your opinions as well. However, the official HMAC members’ responsibilities are to each other and they might or might not respond to non-HMAC commenters.
Our goal is to vote and choose the Heavy Medal Award winners and honor titles on Thursday/Friday, January 25/26. We hope to hear from many of you and please share Heavy Medal with your colleagues, students, library patrons, family and friends.
