Award: 2010 Carol June Bradley Award (MLA)


At its 2003 annual meeting, the Music Library Association announced the establishment of the Carol June Bradley Award for Historical Research in Music Librarianship. Ms. Bradley is Librarian Emeritus at the State University of New York at Buffalo, and has been the foremost historian of music librarianship. This annual award, in the amount of $1,000, will be granted to support studies that involve the history of music libraries or special collections; biographies of music librarians; studies of specific aspects of music librarianship; and studies of music library
patrons' activities.

The grant will be awarded to support costs associated with the research process. These may include travel, lodging, meals, supplies, and digital, photocopy or microfilm reproduction of source material. There are no restrictions as to applicant's age, nationality, profession, or institutional affiliation. All proposals will be reviewed entirely on the basis of merit.

Applicants should submit the following documents:

1. A summary of the project, including planned results
2. A preliminary budget with justification for expenses
3. A current vita
4. The names of three references

Within one year of receiving the award, the recipient is required to submit a report on how the funds were spent, and on the progress of the work supported. Any publication of the recipient's work must state that this award helped to support the research process.

The deadline for receipt of applications is June 15, 2009. Applications received after that date will be considered for funding in 2010. Recipients will be notified by October 15, 2009 and announced at the MLA annual meeting in San Diego, California, which will be held from March 20 to 24, 2010. For more information, please contact the Bradley Award Committee chair via email:
