The GMR is offering to sponsor a number of sites for the upcoming MLA Webinar: Connecting E-science and Team Science: The Changing Nature of Research to be held on Friday, November 18, 2011, from 1:00 p.m.–2:30 p.m., CST.
Visit: http://nnlm.gov/gmr/funding/mlawebcast/ for detailed information on how to become a sponsored site.
The GMR will cover the registration costs for up to two (2) sites per state in the region for this webcast. Because of the limited number of sites we can sponsor, we encourage you to work with your state and local librarian groups to identify centralized locations. Sites will be selected based on geographical location, accessibility, and potential number of attendees.
The deadline to email/fax your registration and email additional information to the GMR is NOON, Wednesday, October 26, 2011.
