Dr Nazim was a shining star and famous name in the library and information science community of Bangladesh. He was a Senior Manager and Head, Library and Information Services, International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh (icddr,b) passed away on 23 December 2020 at 10.00 PM in Dhaka (Inna lillahi Oa Inna Ilahi Razeun) due to complications from COVID-19.
He had very good friendships and professional relationships with the LIS professionals and academics nationally and internationally. We do not want to lose all those memories, love and emotions with Dr Nazim. As part of TLT’s initiative, we announced two new categories of TLT awards entitled “Dr Md. Nazim Uddin Memorial Student of the Year Award” and “Dr Md. Nazim Uddin Memorial Academic of the year award”, recognising industry professionals’ achievements and academic excellence in LIS education. Dr Md Nazim Uddin’s family generously supports the awards.
As declared earlier, we would like to publish a book in his memory to recognise Dr Nazim’s incredible works and his dedication to the LIS professionals.
Note that, Dr Md. Nazim Uddin obtained PhD degree from Jadavpur University, West Bengal, India. Before that, he completed his Diploma, and after that, he also completed a Master of Arts in Library Science from the University of Dhaka with a distinction.
Ms Razina Akhter, Librarian, Bangladesh Shishu Academy, has happily accepted our invitation to be the chief editor of the memorial book. Please Submit your write-up in proper given format along with your contact details. We want to make sure the publisher will follow the international standard when publishing the book.
