Shipe wins Western European Specialist Study Grant

Tim Shipe, assistant to the director for collections and scholarly communications, has been selected to receive the 2010 Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Western European Studies Section (WESS) Coutts Nijhoff International West European Specialist Study Grant, for his proposal, “The Franco-Romanian Literary Avant-garde in Bucharest Libraries.”

Sponsored by Coutts Information Services, the grant provides $3,000 to support a trip to Europe. The primary criterion for awarding the grant is the significance and utility of the proposed project as a contribution to the study of the acquisition, organization or use of library materials from or relating to Western Europe. Shipe will receive his award during the 2010 ALA Annual Conference in Washington D.C.

Congratulations Tim!
