2011 ALAO Conference Date

Check your calendar! The ALAO Conference date was recently changed; the following email was sent out this morning via the ALAO members list.

The 2011 ALAO Annual Conference has a new date, but the same advertised location:

ALAO Conference ~ November 3-4, 2011 ~ Toledo Hilton Hotel

The date was put back one week in order to avoid coinciding with the Ohio Library Council conference. A pre-conference will take place on November 3rd.

We hope to see you Toledo (where the modern ice-cream scoop was invented!)

Brian Hickam
Chair, Conference Program Committee


ALAO Research Grant Application

The Academic Library Association of Ohio's (ALAO) Research and Publications Committee (RPC) is currently accepting applications for the 2011 ALAO Research Applications Grant.

"The Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO) seeks to promote research, and each year the ALAO Executive Board may award up to $500.00 to support and encourage research projects proposed by ALAO members. Both ongoing and new research projects are considered. Grants are intended to help in funding such incremental research costs as the organization of data, the hiring of interviewers or other assistants, charges for computer time, and modest travel costs associated with research. Grants may not be used for purchase of equipment. Grants are limited to investigations related to issues in libraries, librarianship, and information science and technology." -- ALAO, RPC Research Grant

The deadline for grant application materials is January 31, 2011. Please note, applicants must be current ALAO members to qualify for this grant. For additional information regarding this grant, visit the ALAO Research Grant Application web page.

Please send completed application materials to Mark Eddy, Chair of the Research & Publications Committee: mark.eddy(at)case.edu.
