Taylor & Francis slogan writing competition winner

And the WINNER of the Taylor & Francis slogan writing competition is…

Mr Shanker Sengupta, Librarian, Delhi Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Research. His winning entry is:

'The Library... adding life to your years'

The Taylor & Francis Group launched a slogan writing competition on the occasion of Librarians' Day 2014, celebrating the 122nd birth anniversary of Padmashri Dr. Shiyali Ramamrita Ranganathan on 12th August. We invited librarians from across South Asia to participate and received over 300 entries.

Our panel of judges felt that Mr Sengupta's entry stood out amongst the 300 entries on libraries for the simplicity of the message and the concise form in which it was presented. The slogan encapsulates the essence of a library and how it broadens our knowledge base and makes us live longer – both philosophically and physically!

Congratulations Mr Sengupta. Your quote now finds the place of honour on our specially designed t-shirts!
