Deadline Approaches for LIS Faculty Research Grant Proposals

 
Electronically submitted proposals for the 2012 OCLC/ALISE Library and Information Science Research Grant Program are due by midnight Thursday, 15 September 2011.

OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Inc. and OCLC Research, in collaboration with the Association for Library and Information Science Education (ALISE), invite research proposals for the 2012 Library and Information Science Research Grant Program (LISRGP). Awards of up to $15,000 are available to full-time academic faculty in schools of library and information science or related fields.

OCLC and ALISE encourage international proposals and collaborative projects under this program. To aid new researchers, priority will be given when possible to proposals from junior faculty and applicants who have not previously received LISRGP funds.

Award recipients will be notified by the end of 2011 and will be honored at the 2012 ALISE Annual Conference, 17-20 January 2012, in Dallas, Texas.
