Call for applicants: Three Scholarship Opportunities to Attend the 2019 ACRL/NY Annual Symposium

Outside the Box: Redefining Ethical Innovation in the Academic Library

In what ways can libraries redefine instruction, services, and collection development in a manner that is thought-provoking, ethical, and innovative? This ongoing shift calls for change agents to curate, acquire, and build upon competencies, while establishing fresh and transparent benchmarks.

Produced annually by the Greater New York Metropolitan Chapter of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL/NY), this year’s event will take place on Friday, December 6th at Baruch College’s Vertical Campus in Manhattan.

Please note that ACRL/NY offers three scholarship programs. Awardees receive a waiver of registration fees. Breakfast and lunch are included. Please note that scholarship recipients will be responsible for their own travel and lodging expenses.

1. Student Scholarship – For students currently enrolled in graduate degree programs in library/information science who are considering a career in academic librarianship (3 awardees).

2. Early Career Librarian Scholarship – For an academic librarian who has been practicing less than 5 years following receipt of a Master’s degree in library/information science (1 awardee).

3. The Dr. Barbara Bonous-Smit Scholarship – For an academic librarian who has been in practice at least 5 years following receipt of a Master’s degree in library/information science (1 awardee).
