Grey Literature Network Service (GreyNet) Award Recipient 2017

Mr Savić, Head of the Nuclear Information Section, Division of Planning, Information and Knowledge Management at the IAEA, who also chairs GreyNet’s Resource Policy Committee, has been awarded the GreyNet Award for Outstanding Achievement in the field of Grey Literature for 2017. He has published a number of leading articles in the field of grey literature and his work with the INIS Repository Collection has provided a paradigm for information professionals dealing with grey literature. He has served on consecutive GL Program Committees, and assumed a leading role in drafting, promoting and assessing the ‘Pisa Declaration on Policy Development for Grey Literature Resources’.

This award is also recognition of the many years of INIS’ contribution to collecting and providing access to grey literature in the area of nuclear science and technology.

The Grey Literature Network Service was founded in 1992. The goal of GreyNet is to facilitate dialog, research, and communication between persons and organisations in the field of grey literature. GreyNet further seeks to identify and distribute information on and about grey literature in networked environments.

Last year’s award went to Mr Blane K . Dessy, Library of Congress, USA and the previous INIS recipient was Mr Kiyoshi Ikeda, Central Library of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA), who received the award in 2014.
