Extended Professional Development Opportunity Program

As the Extended Professional Development Opportunity Program (EPDOP) enters its third year of service to professional library staff at Harvard, application deadlines are on the horizon. EPDOP provides professional leaves of one to three months' duration—with full pay and benefits—for independent projects that increase professional competencies while providing direct benefit to Harvard's libraries. Eligible projects may include

  • scholarly research directly related to the applicant's position at Harvard;
  • initiatives to improve technical or library-oriented activities, such as internships and exchanges;
  • internships at other institutions;
  • writing in areas served by the applicant's position; and
  • intensive reading and study in areas new to the applicant's profession and of a scope that extends significantly beyond normal professional expectations.

Spring 2001 Deadlines

May 1—deadline for discussion of the preliminary proposal with local supervisors and library administration

June 1—deadline for submission of final, locally approved proposals to the Extended Professional Development Opportunity Review Committee in Wadsworth House

June 30—announcement of approved projects by the Review Committee

Full details on the application process and conditions for application, contact Mathilda van Es, HUL Administration, at 495-3650 or mvanes@harvard.edu.
