Grants for Library Materials

These grants, named for the Friends of University Libraries, support purchases beyond the scope of the Libraries’ regular materials budget. Applications for grants of up to $1000 each are invited. Requested resources must be one-time purchases, not serial publications, and may be for any format that the library can support.

Process: To apply, send a memo to Associate Professor Lori Fielding, Collection Management Officer, in University Libraries (x2318). Let her know:

  • Who you are
  • What you need (in general terms - particular titles or items can be specified if you get the grant)
  • How these materials will help your teaching and/or research
  • Who else, beside yourself, will benefit from the materials

Application Deadline: April 15, 2014.

The University Libraries will determine which requests will be funded and notify all applicants accordingly. For more information, please contact Lori Fielding at x2318 or
