Re: Fw: SIS Fellowship -2009 Award Conferred on Dr. B. S. Kademani !

Thank you Dr. Bandi for the valuable information passed on to me.
Cheers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!It is indeed a proud moment to learn that SIS fellowship award for 2009 goes to Dr.B.S.Kademani. It is a befitting recognition to a down to earth, resourceful , humble and talented senior lis professional. He needs no introduction. A simple search in google opens up tons and tons of information about him and his mentors, collaborators and his contributions. His papers on Scientometrics speak volumes about his calibre, hardwork and perseverance. Let many more laurels adorn his glorious crown.
