Dear colleagues,

The IFLA Document Delivery and Resource Sharing Section has a pleasure to announce the 16th IFLA ILDS Conference (October 9-11, 2019, Prague, Czech Republic) Participation Grant for the librarians who normally cannot attend IFLA events due to financial or other reasons. The grants will include the cost of travel to and from Prague, the registration fee, and hotel accommodation.

Interested applicants are welcome to submit:

  • A CV
  • An application letter in which the applicant’s professional focus and the benefit of the ILDS Conference for his/her job are clearly stated
  • Estimation of travel costs to Prague from the applicant’s country

All the application materials need to be in English which is the main language of the Conference. There are a limited number of grants thus the priority will be given to those who apply from the countries in which few librarians have participated in any IFLA event in the past. In addition, those who are currently working on resource sharing activities in their home institutions or organizations will be given preference.

The grant recipients are required to submit a written report from the conference, which will be published in the Section’s web site and if possible, in local library journals.

The applications should be sent by email to [email protected] by 30 June 2019. Successful applicants will be notified by 22 July 2019.

Please see the conference website for full details on the 2019 IFLA Interlending and Document Supply Conference. If you have any additional questions about scholarships, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to seeing you in Prague.
