Just a quick note to say that the deadline is approaching for applications for the SLA Europe Early Career Conference Award. Apply by the 31st January if you fancy it! Bethan Ruddock has written an excellent post about the benefits of the award over on the SLA Europe blog - I could not agree more. Applying for that award was one of the best decisions I made last year. I got so much out of attending the conference, and as Bethan points out the benefits of the award didn’t stop there. I would strongly urge anyone who is eligible for the award to apply.
