Applications now open for ASW bursaries

mltlogo2The Music Libraries Trust is now accepting applications from students and library staff for bursaries to attend the 2016 IAML (UK & Irl) Annual Study Weekend to be held on 1-3 April 2016 in Manchester. Priority is given to those who would otherwise be unable to attend and who have no other sources of funding. Both full and part bursaries are available.

The deadline for applications is 19 February 2016. To apply, please download and complete our funding application form, and send it to the Bursaries Administrator.

Delegates consistently rate IAML(UK & Irl)’s Annual Study Weekend highly finding the content both informative and relevant with excellent networking opportunities. Here is some of the feedback from the 2015 ASW:

  • “Packed with interesting content relevant to delegates, and very tightly run – congratulations!”
  • “It was very informative, everyone was very friendly and the whole event was very well organised and administrated!”
  • “As always, the ASW was really well–organized and packed with interesting sessions. It was a pleasure to be back amongst IAML colleagues.”
  • “I found the entire weekend very informative and useful. It far exceeded my expectations.”

Some delegates return year after year but there are always a good number of ‘first timers’ including students of library and information studies as well as staff just embarking on careers in music librarianship.
