The Kress Foundation has given the ARLIS/NA a multi-year grant to fund an initiative for international travel to promote the exchange of ideas and information. This grant will support bringing select arts information professionals together at annual conferences that will enhance connections that can lead to national and international projects and initiatives.
The award will provide funding to assist European librarians and art information professionals to attend the annual conferences of the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) and for ARLIS/NA members to attend the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) and other European art library conferences.
In 2014, ARLIS/NA will meet in Washington, DC from May 1-5 and IFLA will hold their World Congress in Lyon, France from August 16-22 with the IFLA Art Libraries Satellite Conference in Paris from August 12-14.
The generous grant from the Kress Foundation will allow ARLIS/NA to make multiple grants to conference participants with the minimum award at $1000 (USD).
