Committing to research: librarians and grantsmanship
MetadataShow full item record
The process of grant writing remains a mystery for many and the library literature remains surprisingly limited on the subject. Writing that first grant can be daunting, particularly if making a solo attempt. In this column I hope to make it a little less so by describing what I know about the process and the players. The description that follows is based on my experience applying for federal funding from academic libraries at research universities, but the principles are transferrable to other kinds of libraries.
