Title:Assessing the Library's Grants Program
Author(s):McGowan, Jamie; Namachchivaya, Beth Sandore
Subject(s):Academic Libraries
sponsored research
Abstract:In this analysis, seven years of sponsored research projects at the University of Illinois Library at Urbana–Champaign were assessed with the aim of understanding the research trends and themes over that period. The analysis was aimed at identifying future research trends and corresponding support opportunities. Goals included developing institutional research themes that intersect with funding priorities; demystifying grant writing and project management through professional development programs, increasing communication about grant successes; and bringing new faculty and academic staff into these processes. The review and analysis has proven valuable for the Library’s institutional practices, and this assessment may also inform other institutions’ initiatives with grant-writing.
