ARLIS/NA New England Professional Development Award – Apply Today!

The ARLIS/NA New England invites applications for the 2018 Wolfgang Freitag Professional Development Award.

PURPOSE:
To aid and encourage the professional development of chapter members and to ensure the vibrant future of our profession. It is intended to support a broad range of professional endeavors including workplace initiatives and projects, continuing education, original research into topics that pertain to art librarianship, and other projects.

*This award can help you:*

  • Fund a new or continuing initiative (e.g. a digitization project, creating an art exhibition space, targeted collection development, purchasing educational technology)
  • Attend professional conferences beyond ARLIS/NA (e.g. ALA, VRA, ACRL, ASIS&T)
  • Attend professional training programs (e.g. SEI, ACRL Immersion, continuing education courses)
  • Cover travel expenses, materials, software, and other costs associated with research intended for publication or presentation

QUALIFICATIONS:
Applicants must be a full or associate member of the ARLIS/NA New England Chapter. Join or renew your membership here.

The applicant cannot have received full funding from other sources for the same project or objective.

AWARD:
$1,000 in award funding will be distributed to one applicant during the calendar year. Chapter members have generously contributed to the Freitag Award fund over the years and donations are always welcome.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE:
To be considered for this award, applicants should submit a proposal that includes:

  • A detailed account, comprising at least 250 and no more than 500 words, of what the award will help you accomplish and how it will contribute to the field of art librarianship
  • A statement describing the financial need of the project or initiative, and a budget detailing a total cost breakdown (e.g. travel and lodging expenses, conference registration fees, workshop fees, course tuition, materials costs, details of additional funding from other sources, etc.)

DEADLINE:
Friday, December 14, 2018. Application materials in PDF format should be emailed to Ellen Petraits, ARLIS/NA New England Professional Development Awards Chairperson, epetrait@risd.edu

ABOUT: The Wolfgang M. Freitag Professional Development Award, named in honor of the chapter’s founding member, was instituted in 1992. Dr. Freitag served as Chief Librarian of the Harvard College Fine Arts Library at the Fogg Art Museum from 1964 to 1991, and as lecturer and senior lecturer in bibliography and art historiography at Harvard from 1967 to 1991. A charter member of ARLIS/NA, he was elected president of the organization in 1980 and received its Distinguished Service award in 1990. Wolfgang Freitag exemplified the highest standards of the profession and served as an inspiration to us all.
