DLF FORUM FELLOWSHIPS FOR LIBRARIANS
NEW TO THE PROFESSION, Fall 2003
Our digital library operations often contain librarians, staff, and
assistants who are lively, intellectually engaged and inquisitive, but
who are not routinely funded to travel to conferences where they can
learn more about the library profession, see digital initiatives from
other institutions, and meet leaders in the profession.
We all have an interest in encouraging newcomers to the profession, and
to further this aim the DLF is pleased to announce this set of DLF Forum
Fellowships. Each DLF institution is able to submit one candidate per
Forum for this award.
