Upcoming SEAside Webinar: Notes from the Field – Funded Project Experiences

Posted by on December 17th, 2018 Posted in: Continuing Education, Funding

Date/Time: Thursday, January 17, 2019, 2pm ET/1pm CT

Registration: Visit NNLM SEA to register for this webinar.

Description: Guest presenter Christine Willis will share how NNLM SEA grants provided a gateway to many opportunities in her professional development and library space. This presentation will describe the types of awards/grants received and how the library benefited beyond the life of the project. Opportunities to join advisory boards, write journal articles, and present at conferences have all been a direct result of the funding provided for projects by NNLM SEA. Additionally, the interest from institutional colleagues has grown when they witness the library taking on new initiatives due to grant funding. This presentation is intended to encourage attendees to be creative with grants and awards and learn what happens after the final report is submitted.
