MLGSCA Research Grant Award – Call For Proposals!

Have you been “kicking around” a project idea for your library but need some funds to implement? Apply for the MLGSCA Research Grant!

General information:

MLGSCA recognizes the need for research that focuses on topics and issues in health sciences librarianship. Of particular interest to MLGSCA are research projects that are practical in nature so that results can easily be put to use in other libraries. In addition to original research proposals, demonstration or replicated research proposals are considered acceptable. Group proposals are also encouraged. $1000 has been set aside for the awards program for the July-June fiscal year with $500 being the maximum amount per award.

 Salary, benefits and tuition/course fees are not supported under this awards program  but many other project expenses qualify, including (but not limited to):

  • equipment
  • software
  • computer time
  • photocopying
  • telephone/fax costs
  • consulting services
  • literature searching
  • travel related to research
  • postage
