The State Library of Oregon is coordinating the selection of one library staff person from Oregon for this scholarship. Additionally, the State Library is matching this scholarship with an additional $500 for a total of $1000 to be applied to expenses: conference registration, travel (including airfare, parking, shuttles, taxis, etc.), lodging, and meals.
