Call for Interest

Travel Support to
Attend the LAUC Fall 2004 Assembly

November 4, 2004
The International House
UC Berkeley

I am pleased to announce that I will sponsor, as LAUC President, at least four travel awards for members to attend the LAUC Fall Assembly, on November 4, 2004. The Fall Assembly will feature two substantive programs that address several important issues facing the community of academic librarians within the University, the University Libraries, and the profession at large. For this reason, LAUC is especially interested in attracting "newer" members to attend the Assembly. "Newer" librarians are, for the purposes of this award, LAUC members who have been appointed at the University for ten years or less.

At least two awards will be funded among the five southern campuses, and at least two from among the five northern campuses. Awards include the following support:


  • Cost of roundtrip airfare, Southern California airports to Oakland or San Francisco International Airports
  • Cost of roundtrip ground transport to the International House, UC Berkeley
  • Cost of Lunch at the Assembly


  • Cost of roundtrip ground transport to the International House, UC Berkeley
  • Cost of Lunch at the Assembly

LAUC members interested in applying for this travel support should write a brief (50-150 word) statement of interest and include a current curriculum vitae (brief format welcomed). There is no requirement for any followup reporting, although travelers would be welcome to publish remarks about their experience on the LAUC Web, if they wish to.

Expressions of Interest should be sent by email to:
Jim Dooley, LAUC-M Chair

The Travel Award Review Committee is comprised of the following three members:
Jim Dooley (M), Chair
Ken Lyons (SC)
Eric Forte (SB)

Applications must be received by October 1, 2004
Notification of funding will be made by October 8, 2004
