Deadline Alert:
Extended Professional Development Opportunity Program

As the Extended Professional Development Opportunity Program (EPDOP) begins its fifth 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.

Fall Deadlines

  • October 1—deadline for discussion of the preliminary proposal with local supervisors and library administration
  • November 1—deadline for submission of final, locally approved proposals to the Extended Professional Development Opportunity Review Committee in Wadsworth House
  • November 30—announcement of approved projects by the Review Committee

For full details on the application process and conditions for application, contact Dana Hanify in the University Library Director's Office at 5-3650 or dana_hanify@harvard.edu.
