OLAC Conference Scholarship
OLAC will award a Conference Scholarship that will provide funds for a member of Online Audiovisual Catalogers to attend the OLAC Conference
The scholarship has been partially funded by donations from the University of Georgia Libraries in memory of Jo Davidson who died August 25, 2003. Jo, who was the Principal Nonbook Cataloger and former Head of Nonbook Cataloging at the University, was active in OLAC during its formative years and worked on many task forces and subcommittees.
Any personal member of OLAC who has never attended an OLAC Conference is eligible for the OLAC Conference Scholarship.
The award amount will be determined by the OLAC Board; it will be sufficient to cover reasonable estimated costs for registration, lodging, travel, and meals.
The recipient must confirm in writing that he or she will attend. The recipient must attend the full Conference, including the business meeting where the award will be announced, and the recipient must write a brief report for the OLAC Board indicating what he or she gained and found to be most helpful in his or her work.
