Bursaries available!

The NLS8 organising committee are happy to announce three bursaries to attend the 2017 New Librarians’ Symposium and they are now open for applications!

Our most generous bursary, sponsored by the NLS8 committee themselves, is available to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander applicants. Two further bursaries are very kindly sponsored by our keynotes, Mylee Joseph and Clare McKenzie.

NLS8 2017 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Bursary

The NLS8 organising committee are offering a bursary to support an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander student or early career professional in the LIS/GLAMR sector to attend the 8th New Librarians’ Symposium in Canberra, 23-25 June 2017. One successful applicant will be awarded a bursary that includes registration for the weekend symposium, one Friday workshop of your choice and one Friday tour of your choice. This bursary is only open to people of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background who work, study or have an active interest in the library, school library and GLAMR sector. Interested? Take a look at our latest blog post for more details and submission guidelines.

NLS8 2017 Student Bursaries

Two student bursaries to attend NLS8 are being offered to LIS & GLAMR students on behalf of our keynote speakers. These bursaries are open to any students currently enrolled in any LIS/GLAMR course in Australia or internationally; i.e. library and information studies, museum studies, records management, teacher librarian, or archival studies. Successful applicants will be awarded registrations for the weekend symposium on the 24th and 25th June 2017 in Canberra. Submission guidelines are now available on our blog.

ALIA New Generation Advisory Committee Bursary

Our friends at the ALIA New Generation Advisory Committee are also offering a bursary to attend NLS8!

New generation students and information professionals are invited to create a record of your thoughts – in any format you like – about where the Library and Information world will be in 2037.

The winning entry will be included in a time capsule, to be opened on ALIA’s 100th birthday.

Entries can be physical or digital and in any creative format, such as text, drawing, music, video, games or crafts. The more creative the better, no holes barred!
