As a leading publisher of scholarly publications and databases, IGI Global seeks to support the advancement of resources and services in academic libraries. As part of this initiative, they are proud to announce the next opportunity in their Academic Librarian Sponsorship Program, which sponsors librarians’ attendance of the industry’s most important events.
In an ongoing effort to help librarians grow professionally and increase their understanding of the changing state of knowledge resources, IGI Global will award one librarian a $500 stipend for attendance of the 2011 ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, from June 23rd to 28th, 2011.
To apply for this sponsorship opportunity, librarians are asked to submit a 250-word essay on why they should be awarded the stipend. They should describe how publishers and librarians can best interact to further the advancement of knowledge resources, how their own knowledge of the industry will help librarians enhance uses of modern technology in their institutions, and how librarians can help make cutting-edge resources for students and faculty more discoverable.
All interested librarians must submit their essay by April 29, 2011 to be considered for the award.
