The purpose of the 3M/NMRT Professional Development Grant is to encourage professional development and participation by new ALA members in national ALA and NMRT activities. Applicants must be personal ALA/NMRT members who are working within the territorial United States.
3M’s Safety and Security Systems Division markets materials flow management products to libraries to prevent unauthorized borrowing and to streamline the flow of library materials. Since its inception in 1975, the grant has been awarded to over 100 NMRT members.
The 2007 grant will help finance attendance at the ALA Annual Conference in Washington D.C.
It covers round trip airfare, lodging, conference registration fees and some incidental expenses.
The selection of grant recipients rests solely with the 3M/NMRT Professional Development Grant Committee, composed of NMRT members.
Selection will take place at the ALA Midwinter Conference in Seattle, Washington in January 2007. Applicants need not be present.
