Win a $1500 grant to attend a library conference!

The Wiley Scholarship for Early Career Librarians

Wiley is offering three (3) $1,500 reimbursement grants to attend a library conference of your choice:

Charleston
ALA Midwinter
ACRL
ER&L
MLA
SLA
ALA Annual

All early career (first five years) academic and research librarians and ML(I)S students in the US and Canada are eligible to apply.

Applicants must complete a brief questionnaire, upload a CV, and submit a short video about what you have learned working in a library that you might not have learned in library school. What advice would you pass on to other early career librarians? Feel free to be creative with your video! Short on time? A video chat-style cell phone video is fine. Camera-shy? Say it with stop-motion animation. Feeling extra creative? Captioned interpretive dance will be accepted, too. The only constraints you have are time and video format– please keep your video under five minutes and MOV, MP4 (MPEG4), AVI, WMV, FLV, 3GP, WebM files are preferred.

Entries will be judged on quality, creativity, and content. Be sure to include the following in your video:

-Your name
-What kind of librarian are you/are you interested in becoming?
-Where do you work?
-What have you learned working in a library that you might not have learned in library school?
-What advice would you pass on to other early career librarians?

Applications are due by Friday, September 30. All winners will be selected by October 7, 2016.
