The purpose of the online resource grants is to enable the purchasing of larger one-time online resources no one department can easily afford with its library allocation. In academic year 2015-2016, $160,000 is budgeted for such online collections.
One-time purchases typically include but are not limited to primary source databases, journal backfile collections, e-book collections, audio or streaming media collections. Some possibilities are listed on our one-time resource page. Please contact Scott Pope (firstname.lastname@example.org) to get pricing for any products outside this list. Acquisitions will verify eligibility and pricing, and can set up trials as needed.
Submission deadline: Thursday, February 18, 2016, 5pm.
Applications received after the deadline will not be considered.
The review committee consists of two members of the Library Committee, two previous recipients, and two librarians.
