The Forum for Interlending (FIL) is offering sponsored delegate places at the forthcoming Interlend 2021 conference, to be held online on Wednesday 30 June 2021.
The sponsorship award covers the cost of attendance at the conference.
To be considered, an email application should be sent to the FIL Chair, Claire Hordern firstname.lastname@example.org
This should include:
1. Full name
2. Contact details (email, telephone number, address)
3. Note of availability to attend conference if award is granted
4. Brief explanation of why you wish to attend, as well as the value that you and your organisation would gain from attendance at Interlend 2021 (200-300 words)
The Committee especially welcomes applications from new professionals, library students and NHS and public sector library staff.
As a condition of the award, the successful applicant is required to submit a report, evaluation or critical appraisal of the conference by the end of August 2021. These will be published in a forthcoming issue of the FIL Journal, as well as being used on the Forum’s website with elements being reused in future FIL publicity as deemed appropriate.
The closing date for applications is Tuesday 1 June 2021. The Committee aims to notify the successful and unsuccessful applicants of their decision within 5 working days of the closing date.
The FIL Committee will consider all applications and make the award to the applicant whom they believe would gain the most demonstrable benefit from attendance.
