Any students or new distance librarians out there interested in a free trip to Savannah next year? Connie Hildebrand has just announced the following:
The Executive Board of the Off-Campus Library Services Conference is pleased to announce that a scholarship has been initiated to help library students and new librarians attend the Off-Campus Library Services Conference. At present the recipient will receive free registration, which includes meals and $500 dollars for travel and rooms. In return the winner will present a paper at the conference.
We hope to build this fund so that it can be continuous and cover more than one person. If you are interested in supporting this project please contact Connie Hildebrand, Conference Coordinator, email: firstname.lastname@example.org The conference registration form also will contain an option to donate to this project.
For more information or to apply for the scholarship go to the conference web site at http://ocls.cmich.edu/conference and look under conference announcements.
The application is available as an MS Word document here.
As I've posted before, IMHO this really is the best conference for distance librarians to attend, especially if you're new to the field.
