      Hi Fran, There are no stipends for the institute. We will supply information on hotel/housing options in Washington, DC to those who are accepted to the institute.

    If I do not have a direct supervisor in my current role should I choose a reference from my work?

    Thank you.

    I know you had already extended the deadline, but just checking to see if there is still a space or two available? I so wanted to apply but some family matters came up and I did not get around to it. Thank you.

    PS – I was accepted to attend last year before our school library was given the opportunity to be opened for summer school. I felt it was important to stay through our session so I was not able to attend at that time.

    If I were to come at another time during the summer, what might I be able to see or do at the library that can assist me in furthering my understanding and use of the LoC online resources? What might one be able to do if not attending a summer institute?
