Purpose and Scope-
Library Grants support the purchase of books and non-print materials to increase library holdings for students' course-related research. Apply for either new or existing courses. Requests can include books, DVDs, and periodical back files. Do not request journal subscriptions or other resources that require a multi-year commitment of funds. Rely on Interlibrary Loan for non-repeating, specialized courses or independent studies. The library will review applications and make awards through the academic year using the selection criteria below as a guideline. Please limit grant requests to one per year.
Maximum grant amount: $1,500
