University Libraries (UL) faculty are encouraged to participate actively in professional organizations devoted to librarianship and subject specialties. To support this aim, the Dean of UL annually allocates a portion of the library budget for faculty travel. Its purpose is to support travel to, and expenses for, professional meetings, conferences and pre-conferences, institutes, workshops, and other developmental programs. Also, a faculty member may apply for travel support to do research at other institutions. See Section 3342-7-13(c) of the University Policy Register for the travel expenses eligible for reimbursement.
