Special ALL-SIS Grant Is Available to Support Attendance at Berring Symposium
As was announced yesterday on the ALL-SIS list by Dick Danner, a symposium will be held in honor of Bob Berring on October 21, 2006 at Boalt Hall (http://www.law.berkeley.edu/library/conferences/berring06/). The ALL-SIS Executive Board has approved a special grant to support an ALL-SIS member in attending this symposium. The grant will reimburse one ALL-SIS member for travel costs and housing for one night (up to $750) for attendance at the Berring Symposium. The grant recipient will be required to submit receipts to the ALL-SIS Secretary/Treasurer for reimbursement.
- Any ALL-SIS member* who will commit to writing an essay for the January 17th issue of the ALL-SIS Newsletter on the impact of Bob Berring's work on academic law libraries.
- * Excluding Berring symposium presenters/organizers, ALL-SIS Executive Board members, ALL-SIS Awards Committee members.
Preference will be given to ALL-SIS members who have been active contributors to ALL-SIS programs and products.
Applicants who are able to attend regardless of receiving this ALL-SIS grant are encouraged to register for the symposium as soon as possible. For applicants who are unable to attend the symposium without this grant, it is not necessary to register for the symposium at this time (a place will be held for the grant recipient).
Each applicant should submit at least one paragraph explaining how attendance at the symposium will benefit his/her work as an academic law librarian.
Each applicant should provide a record of his/her ALL-SIS participation, including ALL-SIS offices held, ALL-SIS committee/task force service, contributions to the ALL-SIS Newsletter, contributions as moderator/presenter for ALL-SIS programs held at the AALL Annual Meetings.
