Posted on December 3, 2012 by Amy Chatfield | No Comments

Have you been “kicking around” a project idea for your library but need some funds to implement? Apply for the MLGSCA Research Grant! Applications will be reviewed starting January 15, 2013!

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


All applicants must submit a short research proposal to Deb Schneider,  Chair of the MLGSCA Research Committee. First review of applications is January 15th! Contact Deb with questions or to obtain more information.
