The award selection committee noted that Ms. Linares’ application demonstrated a clear commitment to critical pedagogy, especially in her approaches to teaching information literacy concepts to students in the behavioral sciences. It also noted her efforts to glean insights that facilitate revising the library instruction program’s learning outcomes; challenging deficit-based approaches to the assessment of learning in library instruction; and starting justice-oriented conversations in the library and on campus.
Thank you to all who took time to apply – librarians working in a wide variety of institutions and positions. The applicant pool is always strong, and the committee encourages previous applicants to apply again when they are next in need of conference funding.
The next award cycle is currently underway! Is there a conference happening sometime between May and August 2020 you’d like to attend for professional development as an academic or health sciences librarian? Please visit our website for details on eligibility, required application materials, and rolling deadlines. Current deadline: March 31, 2020.
This is the first post in a series for anyone wanting to
become familiar with PsycTESTS. Today we’ll cover what you’ll find in PsycTESTS,
how to begin your search for a test, and resources to learn more about
searching PsycTESTS. Future posts will cover how you can use a test that you
find, and tips for navigating the platform.
Are you looking for a test to use in your research, or
planning to develop your own? We have a database that can help!
provides detailed information about the use of thousands of tests, scales, and
measures reported in the behavioral sciences literature. Designed to connect
researchers, students, educators, librarians, and practitioners with assessment
tools, PsycTESTS is an ideal starting point for a new research project, helping
you to avoid “reinventing the wheel” as you’re considering your metrics.
The award is intended to help offset conference-related expenses for librarians with less than 15 years of experience after receiving their MLS or MLIS degree. One cash award is distributed three times each calendar year, and the application cycle opens and closes on a rolling basis.
At this time, we are not limiting the conferences that are eligible for travel award funding. Applicants should identify the conference that best meets their professional needs and explain how attendance will support their current duties and future goals.
