We are pleased to announce that Stacey A. Smith, Public Services Librarian at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology in Chicago, IL, is the latest recipient of the APA Librarian Conference Travel Award. Stacey will use the funds to defray the cost of attendance at the Library Assessment Conference later this fall.
Stacey has been at The Chicago School for about a year and a half, and one of her main projects has been assessing the effectiveness of the school’s growing instruction program. She and her colleagues are trying to build a case for introducing a more systematic program of instruction that is, ideally, embedded into the curriculum. Stacey is hoping to make connections at the conference, and return with new ideas and knowledge to inform their assessment initiative.
The committee would like to thank all those who took time to apply – we were inundated with applications from librarians in a wide variety of institutions and positions.
Now through November 30, 2016, APA Librarian Conference Travel Award is accepting applications for conferences taking place from January to April 2017. Please see the website for more details on eligibility, deadlines, and application materials.
