Call for Grant proposals – due MAY 15th

Grant Proposals are due MAY 15th, 2015.

Proposals will be accepted from:

  1. members not affiliated with a regional group for projects or travel support (expected amount $400 US)
  2. members seeking travel support from the Guin Fund to attend the annual IAMSLIC conference (expected total amount for all grant recipients $4000 US)

Before submitting your proposal, please review the guidelines, fill in and send the NEW Application Forms at: http://www.iamslic.org/activities/grants

Since we would like to support several participants, we encourage you to apply for partial rather than full support. Regarding other travel grant opportunities, please check regional and international organizations related to our subject areas, and of course, we encourage you to check with your IAMSLIC Regional Groups regarding the availability of travel funds.

Best regards !

ProQuest to load metadata into Google Scholar

I have heard rumors that Google Scholar might go away.  The fact that ProQuest will be porting over its metadata into Google Scholar which will then link to full-text for subscribers to ProQuest would imply that Google Scholar will be around for a while longer.  Check out the full story with the link below.
