The American Geographical Society Library, University of

Wisconsin-Milwaukee Libraries, welcomes applications for two short-term

research fellowship programs:




The Helen and John S. Best Research Fellowships


American Geographical Society Library Diversity Fellowship




The American Geographical Society Library is one of North America’s

foremost geography and map collections with strengths in geography,

cartography and related historical topics. An extensive collection of

books, periodicals, photos, maps, pamphlets, atlases, globes, electronic

data, and the archives of the Association of American Geographers and

the American Geographical Society are maintained at the AGS Library.  In

addition, researchers benefit from access to the UWM Libraries print and

online collections during their residency. Please note that not all AGS

Library materials are listed in the online catalog, but finding aids and

professional staff are available to assist in determining if resources

in the AGSL are suitable for a given research project.


Applications must be received at the AGS Library by October 31, 2015. Awards will be announced in December 2015 for fellowships to be held during 2016.
