The Six Nations Public Library regularly accepts letters of intent for interested community members to join the Board. Meetings are typically held in the 2nd fl (inaccessible) Boardroom on the 2nd Wed of the month at 6:00pm, but this is subject to Board discussion annually. All interested community members should send a letter of intent with a brief statement of their individual skill set for Board consideration to email@example.com or drop off the application at the Library.
Six Nations Public Library offers awards for students completing an undergraduate or graduate thesis. A one page description of the thesis should be submitted to the CEO. Upon review of the abstract/description, applicants will be notified if their application has been successful. All successful applicants will be required to submit a copy of the thesis in either pdf format or hard bound with name and title embossed on the front and side, along with a current CV or resume. All successful applicants will be given a certificate for portfolio use and those submitting print format will be given a $50 award.
Research projects may also be submitted for review. These may also be submitted electronically or in bound format. Research projects are usually under 40 pages, but may be longer. Due to the difference in cost of binding, a lesser cash award will be given for projects. All successful applicants will be given a certificate for portfolio use and print submissions will receive a $25 award. It should be noted that the cost of the award is to off-set the print/bind expenses but that electronic documents are accessible and often more preferable by researchers.
Although a thesis or research project is a form of publication, the availability is usually limited to universities and their subsequent departments. Availability to researchers and other students is an important and often missing aspect of the student research process. This award, however small, is intended to cover the cost of submitting the manuscript for use by the Library patrons. Circulation of the relevant work students are conducting as part of their studies is a valuable component of the public library system and the resources we offer and deemed a Service Initiative by the Six Nations Public Library Staff and Board.
Preference is given to students who are conducting work of a Native or Six Nations content; however, all submissions will be considered. Abstracts may be submitted at any time with reviews of applications following the 15th of March, July and November of each year. Multiple awards are given.
