This travel grant is a great opportunity for anyone with an interest in Science Librarianship to attend the ASIS&T Annual Meeting. I was able to go to the 2006 meeting in Austin thanks to this grant and it was a fantastic experience - wonderful people and interesting sessions. If you have an interest or background in chemistry I would strongly encourage you to apply for this award.
