Applications for the 2022 Northern Ohio Technical Services Librarians (NOTSL) Scholarships are now being accepted. Scholarship(s) will be awarded at the discretion of the NOTSL Scholarship Committee, not to exceed $3000, dependent upon need and number of applicants.
Applicants must either be currently working in an Ohio library in a professional, paraprofessional, or support position in a technical services area, or be students (residing or studying in Ohio) currently taking coursework in librarianship. The content of the proposed educational activity must relate to technical services, cataloging, serials, acquisitions, preservation, processing or management of technical services. Typically funded activities can include costs for workshops, conferences, coursework, professional meetings or research, but not training required by an employer. Applicants must specify the nature and cost of the proposed activity in order for the Scholarship Board to properly determine eligibility and the allocation of funds. Students of a distance learning program based in Ohio (e.g. the Kent State iSchool) are considered to be “studying in Ohio” and are eligible for the scholarship.
Scholarships can be used for activities 1 year after the NOTSL Spring meeting. After the educational activity, scholarship winners will submit a brief summary of their activities, which will be posted on the NOTSL web page.
The deadline for submissions is February 14, 2022, and recipients will receive notification no later than March 11, 2022. We encourage all award recipients to attend the NOTSL Spring meeting.
