Each year, the Friends of the Princeton University Library offer short-term Library Research Grants to promote scholarly use of the research collections. The Program in Hellenic Studies also supports a limited number of Library Research Grants in Hellenic studies, and the Cotsen Children?s Library supports research in its collection on aspects of children?s books. The Maxwell Fund supports research on materials dealing with Portuguese-speaking cultures. These Library Research Grants, which have a value of up to $2,500 each, are meant to help defray expenses incurred in traveling to and residing in Princeton during the tenure of the grant. The length of the grant will depend on the applicant?s research proposal, but is ordinarily one month. Library Research Grants awarded in this academic year are tenable from May 2008 to April 2009, and the deadline for applications is 15 January 2008. Applicants are asked to submit a completed application form (http://www.princeton.edu/rbsc/fellowships/application.pdf), budget form (http://www.princeton.edu/rbsc/fellowships/budget_rev08152006a.pdf) a résumé, and a research proposal not exceeding three pages in length. Applicants must also arrange for two confidential letters of recommendation to be sent directly to the Library Research Grants Committee at the address given below. The proposal should address specifically the relevance to the proposed research of unique resources found in the Princeton University Library collections. Prospective grantees are urged to consult the Library?s home page at http://libweb.princeton.edu <http://libweb.princeton.edu/> for detailed descriptions of the collections, especially those in the Rare Books and Special Collections Department, and for the names of curators and reference staff. Applicants should have specific Princeton resources in mind?not simply a desire to make use of a major research library?as they prepare their proposals. A committee consisting of members of the faculty, the library staff, and the Friends will award the grants on the basis of the relevance of the proposal to unique holdings of the library, the merits and significance of the project, and the applicant?s scholarly qualifications. Awards will be made before 1 April 2008. Application materials and letters of recommendation are to be mailed to Library Research Grant Committee, Princeton University Library, One Washington Road, Princeton, NJ 08544. Materials mailed to the committee must be postmarked no later than 15 January 2008. Facsimile transmissions may be sent to (609) 258-2324. Electronic communications to the committee may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Materials submitted by e-mail or facsimile must be received no later than 15 January 2008. E-mail is the preferred method of submission.
