Professional Development Committee Report

The professional development committee has been busy this month. The Grants subcommittee approved two grants:

                        Circulation Supervisor
Institution:    SUNY Cobleskill

Amount:      $350.00

Proposed Activity:   
Registration and attendance to University of Milwaukee's online metadata course, Linked Data for Beginners. This course begins on March 6, 2017 and ends on April 28, 2017.

Name:                       Yu-Hui Chen
                                   Bibliographer and Outreach Librarian for Education & East Asian Studies
Institution:                University Libraries, University at Albany, SUNY
Amount:                    $500.00
Proposed Activity:   Attendance and presentation at the ACRL Conference in Baltimore, MD.
The scholarship committee met in February with a number of new members, to discuss procedures and timelines for the Sylvia Chu and Daniel Kissane scholarships. We had a few items we needed Council to address:
1.   What is the date you need the list of suggested recipients for each award?
2.   What is our budget for the scholarships this year?
3.   Because it is always such a challenge to get candidates for the Daniel Kissane Scholarship (for graduate students), we would like to consider accepting applications from a larger pool by soliciting candidates from schools outside NYS. There may be NYS residents who attend an out of state school online.
