One comment:

  1. I highly recommend applying to the 3M/NMRT Professional Development Grant. I was awarded this very, very generous grant in 2006. One of the great things about ALA conferences is the breadth of subjects covered. Their conference sessions on new technologies are usually top notch, and they also usually offer sessions on publishing.
