The call is out for nominations for the Melvil Dewey Medal, an award that recognizes “achievement for recent creative leadership of high order, particularly in those fields in which Melvil Dewey was actively interested: library management, library training, cataloging and classification, and the tools and techniques of librarianship.” In addition to $2000, the winner will receive a citation in an actual 24K gold frame!

Do you know a leader that fits the criteria? Someone who likes solid gold citation frames? It is our duty as fellow leaders to lift up our colleagues that are making us all better.

Now the intro to Solid Gold, because that’s what is running through my brain.
