TEDSIG/NOTSL Technical Services Conference Grants

Technical Services Staff Conference Grant 2023 Application

Apply Online: Technical Services Staff Conference Grant Application

Application Deadline: 11:59 p.m., August 4th, 2023

Statement of Purpose

The Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO) The Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO) Technical, Electronic, & Digital Services Interest Group (TEDSIG) and the Northern Ohio Technical Services Librarians (NOTSL) seek to encourage technical services staff development and participation in ALAO activities. To that end, the ALAO & NOTSL Executive Boards have partnered this year to offer,

  • A conference attendance grant for free registrations and up to $150 and,
  • A conference presenter grant for free registrations and up to $150

These awards are intended to support and encourage technical services staff to attend and/or present at the 2023 ALAO Annual Conference.

General Information

Technical services staff currently employed in any Ohio library are encouraged to apply. Grant monies may be applied to registration, travel, hotel, and presentation-related expenses.

For those applying for the presenter grant, priority will be given to applicants with an accepted program or poster proposal for the upcoming ALAO conference. Co-presenters may apply jointly for the grant, in which case grant money may be shared amongst the awardees at their discretion.

If grant monies have been dispersed and the grant recipient fails to appear at the conference, ALAO and/or NOTSL may request the check be returned, depending on the extenuating circumstances around the absence.


Technical services staff currently employed in an Ohio library are eligible to apply for the grant. Applications include a completed application form and an essay of 250 words or less describing how attending/presenting at the 2023 ALAO Conference will help enhance the applicant’s library work experience and professional development. ALAO membership is not required.
