Would you like to attend ALA in Chicago in June 2005? 3M/NMRT Professional
Development Grant Committee invites applications
Deadline: December 15, 2004

Attending an ALA annual conference can be a tremendous career boost to a
new librarian. Opportunities abound for continuing education, information
exchange, and networking. 3M Library Systems continues its generous
support of the 3M/NMRT Professional Development Grant program this year,
by providing funding to cover the cost of registration fees, airfare,
lodging and some incidental expenses for 3 individuals to attend the ALA

Conference in Chicago, IL June 2005. Applicants must be personal members
of both ALA and NMRT in order to be eligible.

The application deadline is December 15, 2004. The selection of grant
recipients will take place at the ALA Midwinter meeting in January 2005.
To apply for the grant and for more information, go to the NMRT website at
