2009 Streams of Language, Memory & Lifeways for Tribal Archives, Libraries and Museums National Conference

I am pleased to inform you that the Scholarship Application is now available for the 2009 Streams of Language, Memory & Lifeways for Tribal Archives, Libraries and Museums National Conference to be held in Portland, Oregon October 19-22, 2009. Please visit to submit an on-line application or to print one for mailing. As you might recall this conference is funded by a Librarians for the 21st Century grant through the Institute of Museums and Library Services which is enabling us to offer limited financial assistance to those tribal folks who may not otherwise be able to attend.

The application process is competitive and will be based on demonstrated financial need. Scholarship Applications will be accepted until May 31, 2009 so please don't wait! You will find the criteria, what financial assistance you can request and, who to contact for more information on the website.

Registration will be opening in Mid-May. I and the Planning Committee are currently selecting pre-conference workshops, conference program sessions, speakers and special events. I can tell you that this conference will be the one and only conference you will want to attend in 2009!? And I will be telling you why very soon...
