Another 2009 SLA Conference Award

If you're interested in attending this year's SLA Annual Conference, the Environmental and Resource Management Division of the SLA would like to cut you a break. All you have to do is write them a 300-500 word essay describing your interest in environmental and resource management librarianship.

That's a pretty low word count! You could probably knock that off in two or three paragraphs. Apply apply apply.

Here's the full release:
