We really want to see some students and newer law librarians this year at the upcoming 2018 Annual Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland. We have reopened the applications for CS-SIS Members that are students and newer law librarians apply for a registration grant to the annual meeting.
The purpose of the AALL CS-SIS Grants Program for Students and Newer Librarians is to provide financial assistance for newer librarians or students in library/information school or law school to attend the AALL annual meeting or a workshop offered at the annual meeting. Among the factors taken into consideration are qualities or activities that indicate the person shows promise of future involvement in the law library profession, especially those who are directly involved in providing technology support of any kind within law libraries.
Successful CS-SIS Grant awardees are expected to write an article about some aspect of their experience attending the AALL Annual Meeting and Conference in Baltimore. The article may feature an in-depth review of one program attended or an overview of your whole conference experience, for example.
To apply for a grant, fill out the Newer Librarians form (attached to this blog post, not the email generated with this post) describing how you meet the criteria for the applicable grant to Kenton Brice, Chair of the CS-SIS Grants and Awards Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are due via email by midnight on May 7, 2018.
