Alloway Library's own Duncan Dixon received Honorable Mention in the 2010 e-HLbc Training Materials Contest Awards.  The awards are presented to two librarians from the post-secondary and health sectors whose training materials help users get the most out of resources available through e-HLbc.

In making their selection, the e-HLbc Training Committee noted Duncan’s innovative approach to the principle of using new technologies to improve learning, teaching and training. 

Duncan was the only librarian cited  for this distinction along with award winners Brooke Ballantyne-Scott, Fraser Health Authority and Jeremy Buhler, BC Libraries Cooperative.

His 12 segment screencast series “CINAHL Search Tutorials”, in flash and with accompanying PDFs provides a comprehensive how-to for using  the most-useful features of CINAHL, a powerful database capable of retrieving large amounts of information on nursing and allied health-related subjects.

Congratulations  Duncan!
