Four EBSCO/MLA Annual Meeting Grants available

The EBSCO/MLA Annual Meeting Grant was established by EBSCO Subscription Services to enable a medical librarian working in a health sciences library to attend the Medical Library Association (MLA) Annual Meeting. Four grants of up to $1,000 each are available. The grants seek to encourage participation in MLA by providing an opportunity to attend an annual meeting (this year in Dallas, Texas on May 17-23, 2002 - http://www.mlanet.org/am/).

This is an excellent opportunity for librarians at any stage in their career who have not attended an MLA meeting to benefit from the outstanding programs and educational opportunities available at the Annual Conference. In order to qualify, applicants must be currently employed as a medical librarian and have at least two years experience as a librarian in a health sciences library at the time of the annual meeting.

The EBSCO/MLA Annual Meeting Grant Jury weighs other criteria in recommending an applicant to the Board, including the level of participation in the upcoming meeting, i.e.: presentations, committee memberships, and jury assignments.

Applying is easy! Fill out a simple form and write a 200-word statement answering the question, "What do you expect to gain professionally and/or personally by attending the MLA Annual Meeting?" Applications are available on MLANET at http://www.mlanet.org/awards/grants/. For further information, contact Anne Greenspan, MLA Research and Professional Recognition Coordinator, at 312/419-9094 x28 or email mlapd2@mlahq.org. Completed applications are due December 1, 2001.
