OCLC Research, in partnership with the Association for Library and Information Science Education, is accepting applications from research projects that contribute to a better understanding of how the integration of new technologies affects the information environment and user behavior.
Through its OCLC/ALISE Library & Information Science Research program, OCLC will award grants of up to $25,000 for research related but not limited to the impact of digital technology on libraries and museums, social media and information-seeking behavior, and new developments in knowledge organization (metadata, social tagging, linked data, etc.)
To be eligible, applicants must be a full-time academic faculty member in a school of library and information science or a related field. Priority will be given to proposals from junior faculty.
See the OCLC Research website for eligibility criteria, proposal review procedures, and application guidelines.
