Wiley is excited to announce the second annual Wiley Scholarship for Early Career Librarians. This scholarship is a $1,500 travel grant awarded to three early-career academic or research librarians (including ML(I)S students) to use towards attending a library conference of their choice. These conferences provide a great opportunity for new librarians to learn, network and develop themselves as professionals. All early-career (first five years) academic and research librarians and ML(I)S students in the U.S. and Canada are eligible to apply.
Applicants must complete a brief questionnaire, upload a C.V., and submit a short video. The video should include the following information: the applicant’s name, the type of librarian she or he is currently or would like to become, where the applicant works, what the applicant learned working in a library that she or he might not have learned in library school, and any advice the applicant would pass on to other early-career librarians. A chat-style cell phone video is fine, as is stop-motion animation or captioned interpretive dance. The only constraints are the time and the format–the video must last no longer than five minutes, and it should be in MOV, MP4 (MPEG4), AVI, WMV, FLV, 3GP, or WebM format, if possible. Entries will be judged on quality, creativity, and content.
Please visit the Wiley Scholarship for Early Career Librarians website for details and official rules. Applications are due Friday, September 30. Winners will be selected by October 7.
