Could you benefit from the Kathleen Cooks Bequest?

The legacy of Kathleen Cooks lives on. In 2012 the Kathleen Cooks Fund made awards totalling just over £5,400. Might you benefit from Kathleen's generous bequest in 2013?
In 2012 the Fund provided financial assistance for the following events in Wales:
·         Conversations with Cataloguers
·         Forum for Interlending
and enabled individual CILIP members to attend training events including:
·         Training the trainers
·         DARTS3 conference (blogged about here)
·         University Science & Technology Libraries Meeting
·         Day delegate attendance at CILIP Cymru Wales Conference in 2012 (blogged here)
The Fund also supports the Welsh Books Council in the annual awards of the Tir na n’Og prizes for children’s books published with genuine Welsh background in English and Welsh.
The legacy of Kathleen proudly lives on. Will you join those in benefiting from Kathleen’s generosity in 2013?  Applying for financial support is straight-forward!
Who can apply?
·         Welsh Library Authorities
·         CILIP groups in Wales
·         Individual members of CILIP in Wales
Awards are granted where applications meet at least ONE of the following criteria:
·         Result in a new or improved service to users of library and information services in Wales
·     Add to knowledge in Welsh libraries and information services
·     Improve professional knowledge among members of CILIP Wales
·     Assist in the production or purchase of specific items or collections of permanent value to Wales
Awards are typically in the region of £500 - £1000, but may on occasion be greater.  Decisions are usually made within 10 days and the process is very straight-forward.

What have you got to loose, and think what you could gain!
