Since its founding in 1956, the Seminar on the Acquisition of Latin American Library Materials (SALALM) has engaged in a wide variety of projects and programs designed to advance the scholarly study of Latin America, the Caribbean, Iberia and the Latino/a diasporas. We are offering a scholarship that enables master’s candidates in an ALA-accredited library and information studies program or an archival studies program to attend the next SALALM annual conference, July 1-4, 2018, hosted by the Colegio de México in Mexico City. Scholarship candidates must have successfully completed at least one quarter or semester of study and hold a strong interest in Latin America, the Caribbean, Iberia or the Latino/a diasporas.
The attached poster offers a brief overview of the SALALM Scholarship. I hope that the poster can be appropriately displayed for viewing by students interested in careers in academic libraries or archives. In advance, I appreciate your assistance in bringing this award to their attention.
