The ALAO RPC is very pleased to announce a second round of our Research Grant program for 2011. This is a special, one-time opportunity for our ALAO members to apply for up to $500 in research funding.
This second round will be a “lightning round” with completed grant applications due to the RPC chair by May 20, 2011. Awards will be announced by June 1, 2011. The awards can be applied to such research costs as data organization, hiring research assistants, and modest travel costs.
Please see the official announcement and link to further information below.
The Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO) seeks to promote research.
The ALAO Executive Board may award up to $500.00 to support and encourage research
projects proposed by ALAO members. Both ongoing
and new research projects are considered. Grants are intended to help in funding
such incremental research costs as the organization of data, the hiring of interviewers or other
assistants, charges for computer time, and modest travel costs associated
with research. Grants may not be used for purchase of equipment. Grants are
limited to investigations related to issues in libraries, librarianship, and
information science and technology.
