I thought my travel fund request was in the dean's office, but once again, I misunderstood the proceedure and hadn't filled out the official form. I am trying to go to ACRL in Seattle, where I have a place to stay and I'm willing to cover some of the cost, but can't cover everything with a new house.
The two librarians who plan to travel in the fall got approved for $700 each. I will be very happy with $700, esp. if it is approved soon and I can get a plane ticket for under $300. I have now turned in the form and we will see what happens. I'm already getting myself worked up for the chance that the money is not distributed evenly among the librarians. I tend to be like that and wish I wasn't.
