ER&L Award Opportunities

ER&L offers a series of awards to support institutions that have an interest advancing their library’s eresources management processes and build the necessary connections to colleagues in the field.

With our online conference and subsequent audio/ video archive, ER&L is pleased to offer numerous online conference awards, reducing logistical challenges, such as strain on smaller institutions’ staff and travel expenses.

All awards for in-person ER&L Conference attendance awards may be substituted for the online conference. In these cases, unused travel award dollars will be used to fund additional awards and scholarship.

1 recipient per award unless otherwise noted. Click the title of the award to complete an application.
