Wiley Librarian Scholarship Award

Wiley Librarian Scholarship Award

Applications are now being accepted for the Wiley Librarian Scholarship Award to the 2020 Charleston Library Conference; deadline is September 18, 2020.

The Wiley Network is an online community designed to offer advice, ideas, and collaboration opportunities for researchers, learners, and professionals as they pursue their goals. The Wiley Network includes contributions from industry thought-leaders, professionals, researchers, and educators, and posts contain opinions from those with years of experience and those starting out, as well as helpful hints and updates to help you stay ahead of the changing world.

Recognizing that the voice of the Early Career Librarian is critical to this conversation, Wiley would like to award one Early Career Librarian with a $1,000 grant to attend the 2020 Charleston Library Conference. The Wiley Librarian Scholarship Awards will provide an Early Career Librarian with an opportunity to contribute four relevant, engaging blog posts to The Wiley Network in the coming months.

Award Details

Wiley will be inviting an Early Career Librarians to attend the 2020 Charleston Conference from November 2-6. A $1,000 grant will be provided to the winner. Note: This $1000 grant will be used to cover the cost of the 2020 Charleston Conference registration fee, and the remainder will be paid to the winner in the form of a virtual gift card.

The Charleston Conference is an informal annual gathering of librarians, publishers, electronic resource managers, consultants, and vendors of library materials to discuss issues of importance to them all.

Submission Guidelines

The winner of the 2020 Wiley Librarian Scholarship Award will be asked to write four unique blog posts for The Wiley Network during calendar year 2021. To apply for this award, interested Early-Career Librarians should submit a PowerPoint presentation containing ideas and topics for each of these four blog posts (not the full post, yet!). The blog posts must be related to the topic of integrating library resources (for instance, journals, digital archives databases and primary sources, reference works, books, etc.) into the classroom.

Possible themes related to this topic include (but are not limited to):

  • Integrating library resources into the classroom online and/or in person
  • Working with faculty to align resources to the curriculum
  • Different models of librarian outreach and integration
  • Making the shift (embedding resources in the classroom, supplemental instruction options)
  • Case studies on successful faculty/librarian collaboration and partnerships

The more information you can provide in your submission, the better! We want to make sure we have a comprehensive idea of what you feel is important to share with the community related to library resource integration as an Early-Career Librarian today – think 1-2 PowerPoint slides per blog post.

Anecdotes from personal experiences/initiatives related to your topics are encouraged – you can either reference multiple projects or expand on one extensive project throughout all four posts if you choose.

Please submit your PowerPoint to Claire O’Neill ([email protected]by September 18 in order to be considered for the Wiley Librarian Scholarship Award. The winner will be announced by October 1. The winner of this award will be able to attend the Charleston Library Conference using a Wiley-provided $1,000 grant and will be featured on The Wiley Network four times over subsequent months.

We are looking forward to hearing from you and seeing the winners at the 2020 Charleston Conference in November!
