As a leading publisher of scholarly publications and databases, IGI Global seeks to support the advancement of resources and services in academic libraries. As part of this initiative, we are proud to continue our Academic Librarian Sponsorship Program, which sponsors librarians’ attendance of the industry’s most important events.

In an ongoing effort to help librarians grow professionally and increase their understanding of the changing state of knowledge resources, IGI Global will award one librarian a $500 stipend for attendance of the 2015 Charleston Conference, held this year from November 4th-7th in Charleston, South Carolina.

To apply for this sponsorship opportunity, librarians are asked to submit a 250-word essay on why they should be awarded the stipend, describing the following:

  • How can publishers and librarians better interact to further the advancement of knowledge resources?
  • How can publishers assist in making resources more useable for librarians and their patrons?
  • How can librarians make cutting-edge resources more discoverable for students and faculty?

Submission deadline for the Academic Librarian Sponsorship Award for the Charleston Conference is Friday, October 16th. For more information on the 2015 Charleston Conference, visit their home page:www.charlestonlibraryconference.com.
