STARS/Atlas Systems Mentoring Award offers $1,250 conference travel grant to new ILL practitioners

CHICAGO – The STARS/Atlas Systems Mentoring Award travel grant is now offered in the amount of $1,250, thanks to an increase in funding from award sponsor Atlas Systems, Inc.

This travel grant is presented annually to a library practitioner who is new to the field of interlibrary loan/document delivery or electronic reserves and who has daily, hands-on involvement in the areas of borrowing, lending, document delivery, electronic reserves, material delivery or resource sharing. The award monies provide support for travel expenses associated with attending ALA’s Annual Conference.

Atlas Systems, Inc. is a long time supporter of STARS, our interlibrary loan and resource sharing special interest section, and we are thrilled for the additional support they’re bringing to this award,” said RUSA President Gary White. “Conference travel grants are increasingly important for librarians in this challenging economy, and we are looking forward to sharing this generosity with the 2012 award recipient.”

In addition to the financial support for conference travel, the STARS Education and Training Committee will assign a mentor to the recipient for the conference to help them navigate through the conference experience. The award recipient is expected to participate in STARS events throughout the conference.

More information about this and other RUSA awards, including nominating instructions, can be found at the RUSA Awards Web page. Monetary award amounts are subject to change without notice and are contingent upon donor funding supplied at the time the award is presented. Questions about these awards should be directed to the committee chairperson—access committee contact information by logging in at, then accessing the RUSA roster Web page—or to the RUSA headquarters staff.
