Applications are now being accepted for the Wiley Librarian Scholarship Award to the 2019 Charleston Library Conference; deadline is September 20, 2019.
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 offer two Early Career Librarians with $1,000 travel grants (each) to the 2019 Charleston Library Conference. The Wiley Librarian Scholarship Awards will provide Early Career Librarians with an opportunity to contribute four relevant, engaging blog posts focused on the important topic of Open Access to The Wiley Network in the coming months.
Wiley will be inviting two Early Career Librarians to attend the 2019 Charleston Conference from November 4-8. A $1,000 travel grant will be provided to each winner.
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.
The winner of the 2019 Wiley Librarian Scholarship Award will be asked to write four unique blog posts focused on the topic of Open Access for The Wiley Network. To apply for this award, interested Early-Careers Librarians should submit a PowerPoint presentation containing ideas and topics for each of these four blog posts (not the full post, yet!).
The more information you can provide in your submission, the better! We want to make sure we have a comprehensive idea of how Open Access has affected your role as an Early Career Librarian, how you feel Open Access will change the world of research, or any perspectives around Open Access you feel are important to share with the community – 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. You can find contributor guidelines for The Wiley Network here.
Please submit your PowerPoint to Claire O’Neill ([email protected]) by September 20 in order to be considered for the Wiley Librarian Scholarship Award. The winner will be announced by October 1. The winners of this award will be able to attend the Charleston Library Conference using a Wiley-provided $1,000 travel grant and will be featured on The Wiley Network four times over the next couple of months.
We are looking forward to hearing from you and seeing the winners at the 2019 Charleston Conference in November!
