Applications are now being accepted for the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) H.W. Wilson Foundation Research Award.
This award of up to $3,000 supports research activities by ARLIS/NA members in the fields of librarianship, visual resources curatorship, and the arts. The award seeks to promote research which benefits the professions of art librarianship and visual resources as well as the broader library profession. Proposals may address the compilation and dissemination of information, translation of original scholarship, analysis of the professions, or the enhancement of access to information. Eligible projects include those which result in original scholarship in the arts (performing, architectural, visual, etc.) or aspects of visual and material culture.
Applications and accompanying material must be postmarked by February 4th, 2011.
Guidelines and application form are available on the ARLIS/NA website: http://arlisna.org/about/awards/wilson_guidelines.html
