The Coutts Nijhoff International West European Study Grant is an exceptional opportunity for academic librarians to go to Western Europe for about two weeks and do research on an appropriate project. Please consider applying for the grant. The submission deadline is December 1, 2006. You can find a full description of the grant and criteria for its award, as well as instructions for submission, at:
I am sure that all those who have received the award during the past two decades would be happy to share their experiences with applicants if asked. You can find the list of these librarians at the same URL.
