The Association for Library and Information Science
Education announces its membership in the Coalition on the Academic
Workforce (CAW), a group of higher education associations, subject
discipline professional societies, and faculty organizations committed
to addressing issues associated with the working conditions of faculty
members. The CAW is not a labor union; one of its purposes is to
"promote conditions by which all faculty members, including full- and
part-time faculty members serving off the tenure track, can strengthen
their teaching and scholarship, better serve their students, and
advance their professional careers." See the CAW website at:

Discussion ALISE call for resumes: Part time/Adjunct/Sessional instructors

by Lorna Peterson on Fri, Dec 9, 2011 at 04:57 pm

In response to requests by members and stakeholders, ALISE is now accepting resumes from those wishing to be identified for part time, adjunct, or sessional employment by library and information science programs. Similar to the way ALISE provides a book of curriculum vitae for tenure track job seekers, this call for resumes is for our colleagues seeking part time/adjunct/sessional opportunities. Creation of this book will allow potential employers to review part time/adjunct/sessional instructor CVs while at the ALISE annual conference.

Youth Services Graduate Student Travel Award


ALISE / University of Washington Information School

Youth Services Graduate Student Travel Award

 

 http://www.alise.org/Youth%20Services%20Graduate%20Student%20Travel%20Award

The Information School at the University of Washington (UW) believes information is central and has the power to change all aspects of life and that it is crucial to educate information professionals and scholars who have the ability to make information work better. The important place of children and young adults in this vision was marked by the establishment of the Beverly Cleary Professorship in Youth Services at the School in 2006. To further support this initiative, the Information School is pleased to work with ALISE to establish the “ALISE / University of Washington Information School Youth Services Graduate Student Travel Award.”

 

What: One annual award of $750 (plus a certificate) to support costs associated with travel to and participation in the ALISE annual conference. In years when there is no qualified and/or worthy applicant, the award will not be given.

 

When: The award will be given annually starting with the 2009 ALISE Conference.

 

Who: This award is open to students currently enrolled (i.e., at the time of the ALISE conference) in an LIS graduate program (including both doctoral and master’s studies) with a concentration in youth services, broadly defined to include materials and library/information services for children and young adults (birth to 17 years) in both everyday life and school settings. Applicants must be members of the Youth Services SIG and must be actively participating in the ALISE conference (e.g., presenting a poster or a paper, being a member of a panel, interviewing for a faculty position). An individual may only receive this award once.

 

How: The award will be administered by the Youth Services SIG. Interested students should submit an application to the chair(s) of the Youth Services SIG by November 1. Applications must include: a letter (no more than one page, single-spaced) which describes the individual’s interest and work in the youth services area; evidence of participation (or submission to participate) in the coming conference (e.g., poster/paper/panel acceptance/application); and, a current CV. Applications will be adjudicated by a panel made up of three members of the Youth Services SIG selected and coordinated by the current year’s SIG convener(s). Results of the competition will be announced on or before December 1.

 

Applications for the 2012 ALISE / University Of Washington Information School Youth Services Graduate Student Travel Award should be submitted electronically (as attached PDF, Word or Rich Text files) no later than November 1, 2011 to the 2012 Youth Services SIG Chairs:

ALISE Research Grant Competition

 

(DEADLINE - October 3, 2011)

The Association for Library and Information Science Education (ALISE) is now accepting proposals for its 2012 Research Grant Program Competition. An award of one or more grants totaling $5,000 may be made to support research broadly related to education for library and information science. The Research Grant Award cannot be used to support a doctoral dissertation. At least one applicant in a group submitting a proposal must be a personal member of ALISE as of the deadline date.

 

Proposals may not exceed 20 double-spaced pages, excluding CVs. If necessary, supporting information may be included in an appendix. Proposals must include the following information to be considered in the competition:

  • Abstract of the project (not longer than 200 words).
  • Problem statement and literature review (including justification and need for the research).
  • Project objectives.
  • Project description.
  • Research design, methodology, and analysis techniques (including schedule for completion).
  • Detailed budget (including institutional or departmental contributions, if any).
  • Expected benefits and impact of the research.
  • Vita(e) of project investigator(s) may be appended.

Staff training, general operating or overhead expenses, and other indirect costs are not funded.

The proposals will be judged by the ALISE Research Committee with the assistance of additional ALISE members in those cases where the methodology warrants. The proposals will be judged on:

  1. Appropriateness of the proposed project to issues in library and information science education in its broadest context.
  2. Significance of the problem.
  3. Design of the study.
  4. The investigator's qualifications: how likely she/he is to be successful, based on previous work and/or possession of the requisite skills.
  5. The appropriateness of the schedule and the likelihood that the work will be accomplished on time.
  6. Completeness of the application.

Submissions will be disqualified if they exhibit one or more of the following:

Submission of paper for the wrong award
Poor quality in the writing
Poor organization of material
Lack of specificity on required elements
Lack of appropriate instrument samples
Lack of appropriate theoretical framework

Recipients of the award must:

  • Present a preliminary report at the 2012 ALISE Annual Conference
  • Submit written quarterly reports to the Executive Director of ALISE, who will pay the grant in periodic installments as the research progresses
  • May submit the results of the funded study to the Association's Journal of Education for Library and Information Science (JELIS) for possible publication prior to submission to other publications.
