CARLI Seeks Academic Library Teams for 2015 ILEAD USA

CARLI seeks teams of academic library staff members for ILEAD USA (Innovative Librarians Explore, Apply and Discover): The 21st Century Technology and Leadership Skills Institute for the States, hosted by the Illinois State Library.

This continuing education initiative will be held at the University of Illinois Springfield, March 23–26, June 22–25 and October 26–29, 2015. The ILEAD USA states partnering with Illinois are Delaware, Maine, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Utah and Wisconsin.

CARLI academic teams working within ILEAD USA are encouraged to focus on replicable projects specific to the academic community and of value to the consortium, including but not limited to assessment projects and research projects intended for conference dissemination or publication in a journal.

CARLI academic library teams should submit their applications to the Illinois State Library, and where an academic subcommittee will review them. Reviewers will look for teams that represent several CARLI libraries. A limited number of academic team applications will be accepted. Once the review committee selects teams, CARLI will solicit additional mentors and instructors that meet the specific needs of the selected academic teams.

ILEAD USA is a competitive, application-only program. Applications are available for participants, mentors and instructors at Applications will be accepted until December 19.
