Friends Fund Disbursement Subcommittee -- Call for Proposals Summer 2012
Friends Fund Disbursement Subcommittee
Call for Proposals
June 7, 2012
The Friends of ACRL, academic and research librarians, provide monetary support to enhance and ensure the relevance of our profession. ACRL committees, interest groups, and sections can submit proposals for funding to the ACRL Friends Fund Disbursement Subcommittee for projects that support professional development, advocacy, innovative programming, and the Board strategic plan initiatives.
Proposals are being accepted June 30 through August 1, 2012, <http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/acrl/resources/forms/friendsfund.cfm> and will be evaluated by the Friends Fund Disbursement Subcommittee in August 2012. The subcommittee’s recommendations for funding are based on the individual merits of each proposal, (see review criteria at www.ala.org./acrl/resources/policies/chapter6#six7six1).
Preference will be given for projects that undertake and support new research that builds on the research agenda in The Value of Academic Libraries: A Comprehensive Review and Report: <http://www.acrl.ala.org/value/?p=36>
Funding recommendations will be submitted for final approval to the ACRL Budget and Finance Committee by August 15. Members who submit proposals will be contacted regarding decisions no later than September 1.
