April 2, 1998
The American Association of Law Libraries' (AALL) Grants Program will accept applications for consideration until May 1, 1998. The program's purpose is to assist librarians who hold promise of future involvement in the law library profession.
The grants program began in 1952 and is one of the oldest and most successful AALL programs. More than 1,000 librarians have received funding to assist them in attending AALL educational activities. Many of those recipients are leaders in the profession today.
Grants may be used to support attendance at any Association-sponsored educational activity, including the Annual Meeting, Institutes, and Workshops, by covering registration costs. Travel expenses are not included in the grants. Applicants must be a member of AALL or an AALL Chapter. Prior grant recipients are ineligible.
Applications may be obtained at www.aallnet.org/services/application_meeting.html or by contacting Caryn Jones, Membership Coordinator, 312/939-4764. Questions about the grants program may be directed to Grants Committee Chair Grace M. Mills (Librarian, North Carolina Central University School of Law Library) at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919/560-5241.
The American Association of Law Libraries was founded in 1906 to promote and enhance the value of law libraries to the legal and public communities, to foster the profession of law librarianship, and to provide leadership in the field of legal information.
