In order to facilitate the visit of librarians from the United States to LIBER Book Fair in Spain, ICEX España, Exportación, Inversiones, and the Association of Publishers Guilds have provided each year an expense account to a select number of professionals to travel to Spain and visit LIBER.
The expense account consists of a grant between $1,000 and $1,600 (depending on the area where the library is located) given to a librarian attending LIBER for commercial purposes. The aid is paid by check on the last day of the fair.
The proposal for the selection of librarians is made by the Trade Commission of Spain in Miami, based on their objectives of promoting books from Spain in the United States. In order to take into account the maximum number of professionals, please fill out the following form in order to be considered for these invitations and to receive the expense account for LIBER.
The deadline to evaluate candidates for LIBER 2018 is April 30th, 2018.
