(via ACRL)

Academic and research librarians increasingly recognize scholarly communication as a core competency of the profession. Whether helping researchers meet their funder’s mandates for public access and data sharing, guiding responsible copyright practice, or supporting new types of scholarship and instruction, librarians are leading change across campus and around the world. ACRL empowers our community in accelerating the transformation of the scholarly communication system with the popular workshop Scholarly Communication: From Understanding to Engagement.

To emphasize scholarly communication’s critical importance to the profession, ACRL is once again underwriting the cost to bring this workshop to five locations in 2020. This subsidized program is offered using a cost-sharing model where ACRL covers the bulk of the expense for delivering the workshop, leaving a cost of only $2,000 for successful host institutions. The application to host is now available and applications are due Friday, November 15, 2019. See the workshop webpage for full details and FAQs about applying to host the subsidized version of the workshop.

(via Reina Williams, juror on the Librarians without Borders® Ursula Poland International Scholarship jury of the Medical Library Association)

Ursula H. (Anker) Poland (1922-2009) was a distinguished MLA member, recipient of the Marcia C. Noyes Award, Fellow of MLA, and Janet Doe Lecturer.  Poland’s 1982 Doe Lecture is one of MLA’s most important statements about MLA’s international interests and accomplishments. Poland used the Doe Lecture forum, other publications and activities, and her own career as a model to encourage MLA members to enrich their careers and approach to the practice of health sciences librarianship through international connections and experiences.

The Librarians without Borders® Ursula Poland International Scholarship helps fund an international project by a US or Canadian health sciences librarian. Endowed in 2014, this award is designed to enable the MLA to help fund a wide range of individuals whose projects are related to health sciences librarianship in an international context. The scholarship recipient receives a certificate at the MLA annual meeting and a scholarship award of $1,000 to fund expenses associated with an international health sciences library project.

Could you be the next Ursula Poland International Scholarship awardee?
