    For any applicant who is currently a graduate student, a letter of reference from the dissertation director is required. The letter should be written specifically in support of this application. Letters submitted electronically as signed PDFs are preferable, although postal submissions will be accepted. When using e-mail, we ask that recommenders use the subject line “Recommendation for [Applicant Name]” (for example, “Recommendation for Chris Smith”). Applicants are advised to request recommendation letters well in advance and to direct referees to the Society's website for guidance. It is the applicant’s responsibility to have the letter of reference in the Society’s hands by 31 July 2017.
  • Letter of Application

    Please provide us with a letter of application describing the nature of your current, unpublished research in the field of bibliography, and your eligibility for the New Scholars Program. The program seeks to promote the work of scholars who are new to the field of bibliography, broadly defined to include any research that deals with the creation, production, publication, distribution, reception, transmission, and subsequent history of texts as material objects (print or manuscript). Junior (i.e., untenured) faculty and graduate students at the dissertation level are eligible, as are professional librarians, members of the book trade, and book collectors who are at the beginning of their careers.
