Library Offers Research Funding Workshops


    The University of Delaware Library will present a series of workshops for University of Delaware faculty, staff, and researchers on research funding during the Spring 2009 semester.

    The workshops will focus on two Library databases, Foundation Directory Online and COS Funding Opportunities, which faculty, staff and graduate students can use to identify potential funding resources, such as grants from private foundations, corporations and public charities.  The workshops will cover strategies for searching the databases, procedures for using alerting services and RSS feeds and locating additional grant information on the Internet.   Both databases are available on the Library Databases page [www.lib.udel.edu/db/].   Each workshop in this series is tailored to meet the needs of specific communities of scholarship:

    This workshop series is co-sponsored by the University of Delaware Research Office. The presenter will be Carol Rudisell, Librarian, Reference Department.

    The workshops will be held in the Library Instructions Room (Room 116A) of the Morris Library, and are open to University of Delaware students, faculty, and staff.   Seating is limited and registration is required. Interested individuals can register online at [www2.lib.udel.edu/usered/workshops/current.htm]. Questions can be sent via e-mail to [] or addressed by calling 302-831-2432.
