Conable Conference Scholarship.  As recipient of this scholarship, Aubrey gets an all-expense paid trip to Washington, DC for the 2010 ALA Annual Conference.  She’ll be attending meetings and programs on intellectual freedom topics, networking with other librarians, and gathering information and material to take back with her to North Dakota, where she’s an information specialist with the University of North Dakota’s Center for Rural Health.  Aubrey will be blogging during the conference here on the OIF Blog, and afterward she will deliver a report to the FTRF board, which will be printed in the next issue of the FTRF newsletter.
