General Information about Enlace
Enlace assists Latin American and Caribbean librarians and other information professionals with funding to attend SALALM's annual meetings. The goal is to foster professional contacts between U.S. and Latin American and Caribbean librarians and other professionals who work in library settings.
SALALM members are committed to improving access to bibliographic resources about and from Latin America as well as information on regional publishing trends.
The ongoing exchange of information and work-related experience is an essential attribute of librarianship. Creating and supporting the expansion of professional networks among librarians and bookdealers contributes to a better understanding of the region, fosters professional development and improves services at our institutions.
Procedures & Criteria
SALALM is seeking participation from Latin American or Caribbean colleagues who can present papers on the conference theme, preferably, or on another topic of interest to SALALM's membership. All presentations will be made within organized panels.
Travel awards are available for selected Latin American participants based on the following criteria and procedures. It is customary for Enlace to pay eighty per cent (80%) of travel costs, calculated by a 21-day advance purchase airfare and the per diem figure Enlace decides for the city hosting the conference. The recipient of the travel award will receive reimbursement at the conference.
