The library at the University of East Anglia has won the RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) in Libraries Award. I intend no disrespect to UEA library or anyone who works there, but giving prizes for using RFID seems to me much the same as giving a prize for innovative uses of sellotape or post-it notes in libraries. In my will, if I have not spent my heirs' patrimony on gin, slow horses and fast women by then, I may leave a legacy for a pointless award to embarrass the profession. Suggestions in the comments box please.
Note: the Mrs Joyful Prize for Raffia Work was a prize at the fictional St Custards school in the Molesworth tetralogy. It was always won by Grabber, head boy, captain of everything and son of nouveau-riche parents. Grabber could, the narrator-hero Molesworth says, 'win a brownies knitting badge for the ushual amount'.
