OCLC Research Invites Applications for Innovative Information Science Research Projects

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 major OCLC Research themes, 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 members.

For eligibility and application guidelines, see the OCLC Research website.
