Call for Applicants: JoVE Librarian Travel Award to Charleston Library Conference 2018 (Deadline August 1)

(via Rachel Borchardt, American University)

Applications are now being accepted through Wednesday, August 1.

JoVE is proud to support the professional development of academic librarians. To enable you to attend the Charleston Library Conference, we will pay for (and organize) your travel, accommodation and conference registration. We will sponsor two librarians from North America and two librarians from Europe or the Middle-East.

Submission Guidelines

Library outreach continues to be one of the most important (yet challenging) facets of the academic librarian profession. The Award will recognize librarians who have established an effective and sustainable practice of communication with their institution’s STEM students and faculty. Interested librarians should submit an essay (1,000 words or less) and examples of outreach materials.

For more information on the Award, and to apply, visit here. More background on the 2018 Charleston Library Conference, including registration deadlines, is available here.

As a side note, Ms. Borchardt serves on the JoVE Library Advisory Board, and she will also serve as a reviewer of applications. Therefore, she recommends sending any questions to the e-mail above, rather than to her own address.
