Library Offers Research Funding Online Workshops


The University of Delaware will present workshops for University of Delaware faculty, staff and researchers on research funding during Fall 2010 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 (http://www.lib.udel.edu/db/). Each workshop in this series is tailored to meet the needs of specific communities of scholarship.
