This scholarship is designed to allow ACRL-OR members the chance to apply for awards of up to $250 to attend conferences, workshops, courses, seminars, or other learning opportunities three times throughout the year. You can find out more about the multiple scholarship opportunities ACRL-OR provides on the ACRL-OR Scholarships page.

Battistella will use her award to attend the American Association for State and Local History 2017 Annual Conference next month in Austin, TX. While Battisstella has an MLS, she currently holds as assistant professor affiliate and research anthropologist appointment in SOU’s Sociology and Anthropology Program. Battistella partners with Hannon Library colleagues, Jackson County Library staff, and others to create “unique digital collections that tell the stories of Southern Oregon.” Her projects have been funded by the Erath Family Foundation (document wine in Southern Oregon), Rogue Valley Winegrowers Association, the Oregon Heritage Commission, the National Endowment for the Humanities (Common Heritage grant to document agricultural and logging family histories), and most recently, LSTA.

Battistella presented on aspects of her work at the 2016 OLA Annual Conference  and plans on submitting another proposal for OLA 2018.

Are you looking for support to attend a professional development event of your own? Applications for the ACRL-OR Professional Development Scholarship are reviewed three times a year. The next deadline is November 30, 2017.
