This years ARLIS/UK & Ireland Annual Conference ‘Weaving New Futures: collaboration and reinvention in the digital age’ is being held at the University of Leeds from 13-15th July 2011 and is fast approaching. As always the conference has a great deal to offer students, trainees and all who are interested in a career in art librarianship, with opportunities to network and acquire new skills and knowledge.
The Student Bursary Award is once again available to full or part-time students working towards a first degree or postgraduate qualification in Library and Information studies. The generous award enables one student per year to attend the conference free of charge (excluding travel costs). The bursary extends to those enrolled on a course at any point in the current year – so students commencing their qualifications in September are still eligible to apply, and we would encourage you not to miss out on this opportunity.
