External Research Grants

If you are seeking external funding and your grant proposal includes any of the following services, the Libraries would be interested in discussing a potential partnership.

  • web design
  • web hosting
  • user interface design
  • back-end database development
  • ADA compliance
  • web usage statistics
  • metadata
  • scanning and other digitization services
  • data format selection
  • hosting platform advice
  • data stewardship and migration
  • data security
  • best practices for long-term data retention

If your grant is going to pay for these types of services anyway, it might be a good idea to keep some of that money on campus rather than outsourcing to a commercial IT shop. And if you do partner with the Libraries, there is a much greater chance that your scholarly product will be preserved long term, shared more widely, and have a greater impact.

Here are some examples of past and current collaborative initiatives.
