Funding available for Professional Development
Do you have a unique library application or patron service you would like to implement, but haven't had the funds to develop it? Have you been researching a topic and need finances to continue your research? Or maybe there is a workshop or institute you would like to attend, but limited travel funds keep you from attending. The Academic Library Section's Professional Development Committee has the perfect solution to your woes! Consider applying for a 2006 Professional Development Grant.
The ALS Executive Committee has given approval for an award of up to one thousand dollars ($1000), with the possibility of multiple partial grants, should the Committee receive a sufficient number of qualifying proposals. So, MAKE US WORK!! Send those applications today!
