The Association of Research Libraries and Association of College and Research Libraries are currently accepting applications for the Institute on Scholarly Communication. The 2.5 day immersion program will equip participating librarians with the tools to educate other library staff members, and to engage in a dedicated outreach plan on their campuses. Participants are encouraged to apply in teams, particularly if they work for larger institutions.
The deadline to apply is August 15, and the application is here. The institute will be held December 6-8, 2006. This is the second offering of 2006, because the first session proved extremely popular. If you're in a position to create change on your campus, or want to be in this position, you should apply for the Institute on Scholarly Communication!
