Atlas Systems Scholarship

Atlas Systems, a Virginia-based library software development and service company best known for creating the ILLiad interlibrary loan management system and Aeon, the premier user request and workflow management system for special collections and archives, has been pleased to contribute annually the equivalent of a full-tuition scholarship to the RBS Directors’ Scholarship Fund since its inception in 2009.

Beginning in 2012, the RBS Scholarship Committee has awarded an Atlas-RBS Scholarship to a current or aspiring special collections librarian or archivist who is interested in the use of digital technologies in support of special collections librarianship.

Applications will be accepted directly by RBS. To apply, please submit an RBS scholarship application by the October 15 deadline. See the main scholarship page for application instructions. Beneficiaries of the Atlas-RBS scholarship receive full tuition to an RBS course but are responsible for their own travel and lodging.

Please note that if you are applying for a Directors’ Scholarship you may also be eligible for the Atlas-RBS Scholarship. Directors’ Scholarship applicants will be automatically considered for the Atlas-RBS Scholarship, so there is no need to apply twice.
