2015 Summer HELP Institute Application Now Available Scholarship Application. Deadline approaching for scholarship Feb.15th, 2015

My colleague, Sharon Lenius, forwarded this opportunity with the following good note: “There is a large contingent of libraries working in this emergency and medical arena. It would be a good grounding in that area of practice as well as helping a student decide if the topic/service was of interest to them.”

My notes:
1) The final Bloomberg School of Public Health registration deadline is noon EST on June 20, 2015.
2) The deadline for submitting a scholarship application is February 15th, 2015. Applicants will be notified of their status in March.

“The vision for a new librarianship must go beyond finding library-related uses for information technology and the Internet,” explains Professor R. David Lankes, course architect and instructor. “ It must provide a durable foundation for the field.”
