In these hard economic times, it can often be very difficult to find a budget to attend training or conferences. That’s why MmITS will shortly be opening our new funding stream for 2014, helping three individuals attend premier training and conferences related to the use of technology within the Library and Information Sector.
As MmITS is a group concerned with the organisation, delivery and exploration of information through modern media including graphic forms, video and web-based applications, we are funding 1 place at each of the following conferences / training sessions:
1. Internet Librarian International
(applications opening soon)
2. A course or conference of your choice – up to £500 only
(applications open at the end of July 2014 for courses or conferences in
keeping with the themes of MmITS)
3. CILIPS Autumn Gathering
(applications open in August 2014)
To be eligible for a MmITS grant you must:
- Be based in Scotland
- Be working within the Library and Information Sector for between 5 – 20 years
- Must use, or want to use, technology within your role
- Must not have received any MmITS funding in the past 3 years
Applications for the Internet Librarian International funding will be opening soon. Keep an eye on our blog and our Twitter account (@MmITScotland) to keep up with details. Alternatively, to be emailed when applications open, get in touch by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that only session entry fees will be paid for by MmITS. All travel, subsistence and accommodation fees will be the responsibility of the successful applicants. Fees will be paid by invoice to the provider only, and not directly to the successful applicant.
