Sage Library Support Staff Travel Grants: The Travel Grants (six to be
awarded) make it possible for library support staff to attend the
American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference to be held in the
summer of 2007 in Washington, DC.   Sage Publications donates six grants
of up to $1,000 to cover the expense of attending the conference,
including airfare, three nights lodging, and conference registration,
for each recipient. Library Support Staff who currently are employed in
a full time support staff position, have a minimum of three years of
experience in an area of technical services (acquisitions, cataloging,
collection development/management, preservation of library materials,
serials), and have not previously attended an ALA annual conference are
eligible for the grants. Successful candidates will be required to
submit a brief report describing their experiences at the annual
conference.  This report will be published in the post-conference issue
of the ALCTS Newsletter Online and also will be shared with the sponsor.

To apply, send a letter addressing the application criteria, brief
resume and a short statement (ca. 250 words) outlining why attending the
2007 ALA Annual Conference would be beneficial. A letter of support from
the applicant's supervisor, indicating the employer's support for the
application also is required. Applications and the supervisor's letter
must be submitted in electronic format, with all parts emailed as Word
attachments. Please send all documents to: Sarah Morris, Sage Jury,   For questions, please contact Rhonda Marker,
chair, Sage Jury, <>
