Congratulations to Peter Keelan of Cardiff University on being named last week as the Welsh Librarian of the Year at the CILIP Cymru Wales annual conference. Again this year, there were excellent stories to be told about all the nominees and  they all are thoroughly deserving in having a position in the shortlist. Peter won the Academic Library category and went on to win the overall Welsh Librarian of the Year title.

Peter is Head of Special Collections and Archives (SCOLAR) at Cardiff and you can see some of their rich and interesting work on the SCOLAR blog or on their website. Take some time to trawl through the range of digital material, there are some great images and stories being told.

Peter is well known and respected around the world of special collections and archives and is a thoroughly deserving winner of this award.
