SUMMER 2013 Workshops: June 22-26 and August 5-9


An IMLS Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Continuation Grant is allowing us to expand our face-to-face workshops nationally. We are recruiting 3-person teams (librarian, general educator, special educator) as well as 15 school library faculty in higher education, to attend a 4 and a half day workshop on the Syracuse University campus in either June or August 2013. All workshop attendees' travel, housing, meals, and workshop fees are covered by the grant from IMLS. More detailed information is available in the main menu under Workshops.

IMLS Awards Third Grant to Project ENABLE


A 2013 IMLS Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Grant has been awarded to Project ENABLE (Expanding Nondiscriminatory Access By Libraries Everywhere), the third one the project has received. The project was originally funded in 2010, and now will continue until 2015 with this grant. The project is a partnership between the iSchool's Center for Digital Literacy and the Burton Blatt Institute at Syracuse University. The project's principal investigator is Ruth Small. Co-PI's are William Myhill and Renee Hill.

Project ENABLE has focused on face-to-face and online training for school librarians to help them better design and implement their library and information programs and services for students with disabilities. The current grant will expand the training to public and academic librarians nationwide.
