Swets Charleston Conference Scholarship

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Biblioman!

Swets is proud to announce our super 7th annual scholarship for attendance to the 2014 Charleston Conference. This year we have added some BAM!, trading in our standard essay format for a fresh, creative approach. Swets prides itself on innovating tools to help libraries function at peak performance, freeing up funds and saving time so that librarians can be the heroes they are. Therefore, participants are asked to submit a depiction of their inner library superhero for their chance at $1,000 toward attendance to the conference taking place November 5-8, 2014.

Interested applicants are invited to upload an original picture, drawing, or graphic (we encourage creativity!) HERE by October 6, 2014. The photos will be open to voting by anyone, so we encourage participants to share their submissions via Twitter #Bman, Facebook, email, etc. The top three images will move on to a final vote from our panel including:

  • Katina Strauch, Head of Collection Development, College of Charleston
  • Chuck Hamaker, Associate University Librarian for Collections & Technical Services, University of North Carolina – Charlotte
  • Kristin McNally, Marketing Manager, Swets
  • Kasie Chaplick, Marketing Assistant, Swets

The scholarship must be used to attend the 2014 Charleston Conference. All applicants are invited to visit the Swets table for a special gift during the Charleston Vendor Showcase on November 5, 2014.
