CARL Announces New Research Grants

The Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) offers two research grant opportunities available to librarians working in a research setting and to students of Library and Information Studies. The grants are the CARL Research in Librarianship Grant and the CARL E-Learning Research and Development Grant.

CARL has designed the new Research in Librarianship Grant to support new or established librarians, working in a research library or institution, who are actively engaged in research. Library and Information Studies graduate students are also welcome to apply for the grant. It is intended to support projects, involving structured evidence-based research, that propose answers to real-world issues. A grant of up to $2,000 per year will be awarded to a
librarian, or to a student enrolled in any Canadian Library and Information Studies graduate school.

Established in 2008, the E-learning Research and Development Grant is designed to support librarians or students pursuing research into the development and delivery of e-learning tools and services. Two grants of $1,000 will be awarded per year.
