IGI Global is proud to continue the Academic Librarian Sponsorship Program, which sponsors librarians’ attendance of the Charleston Conference.
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 at the 2017 Charleston Conference from November 6-10, 2017, in Charleston, South Carolina.
All those who apply will receive a complimentary packet containing Library Information Science professional development materials from Examining the Emotional Dimensions of Academic Librarianship: Emerging Research and Opportunities and IGI Global’s cornerstone publication, the Encyclopedia of Information Science and Technology, Fourth Edition. Visit Booth #73 during the conference to receive your complimentary content.
If you are interested in applying for the sponsorship opportunity, please fill out the form below and submit a 250-word essay on why you should be awarded the stipend. The essay should describe the following:
- How can publishers and librarians best interact to further the advancement of knowledge resources?
- How will their own knowledge of the industry help librarians enhance uses of modern technology in their institutions?
- How can librarians help make cutting-edge resources for students and faculty more discoverable?
