ER&L awards buttonWe are pleased to offer an opportunity for 2 students to attend ER&L 2016!


Taylor & Francis Group is sponsoring travel grants for two students traveling to ER&L in Austin, Texas. The ER&L + Taylor & Francis Student travel grant includes conference registration, air travel costs, and housing up to $2000 per winner.

“We are proud to be a returning sponsor of the ER&L student travel grant award for the fourth consecutive year. Taylor & Francis Group ardently supports the library community, and we believe it is imperative for library and information science students to stay up-to-date on emerging trends and central issues in their field. We are pleased to offer students in this community the opportunity to attend the 2016 ER&L Conference, and we are certain they will find this key conference both informative and exciting,” states Stacy Sieck, Library Communications Manager, Americas Region, Taylor & Francis Group, Philadelphia.

The goal of the ER&L Conference is to bring together information professionals from libraries and related industries to improve the way we collect, manage, maintain, and make accessible electronic resources in an ever-changing online environment. We do this once a year at an in-person and virtual conference. We encourage library students to join us at the Electronic Resources and Libraries Conference in Austin, TX on April 3-6, 2016. Good luck, students!


This grant is open to currently enrolled students wishing to attend ER&L 2016. Student applicants will be required to supply contact information as well as to answer questions related to how access to ER&L may assist the applicant in achieving professional and academic goals. US and international applicants are welcomed and encouraged!
