NAHSL is pleased to announce the availability of funding for members to implement new technology in a variety of ways in their institutions. The Jay Daly Technology Grant is named in memory of our great friend and colleague who was instrumental in using technology to enhance our professional work. The Grant seeks to:

  • assist award recipients to acquire and implement new technologies in their institutions, ultimately improving their users’ access to health information;
  • encourage award recipients to become knowledgeable about new technologies and incorporate them into practice in a meaningful way;
  • embolden award recipients to innovate with new or known technologies to improve services or access within their institutions;
  • draw attention to the librarians’ value to their institutions by providing them with tools that allow them to evolve in their professional role;
  • promote professional knowledge sharing among colleagues across the region

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and funds awarded up to an amount of $1,000 / individual / year. A maximum of $2,000 is available for distribution to the entire membership per year. You can find further information, as well as the Grant application, on the Professional Development page of the NAHSL website (http://nahsl.libguides.com/NAHSL).

In times of economic difficulty, it is a great benefit to belong to an organization committed to helping its members develop professionally through grants, awards and other means of service. I hope you’ll consider the opportunity and take advantage.
