JoVE is proud to support the professional development of academic librarians. To enable you to attend the Charleston 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.
Applications are now being accepted through August 1
Library outreach continues to be one of the most important (yet challenging) facets of the academic librarian profession. This 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.
