Next Generation Libraries Mellon Grant

Grant Opportunity for Curricular Development Projects

Through an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation grant to the Five Colleges of Ohio, The College of Wooster library is now accepting proposals for curriculum development grants to faculty interested in partnering with their librarians to build digital collections to enhance student learning. The Next Generation Libraries (NGL) Grant will fund collaborative projects annually for the next two years, 2010-2012. While we anticipate a broad range of proposals, grants will typically range from $1,500-$2,500.

The College of Wooster NGL grant committee invites faculty proposals for curriculum development projects focused on the creation of digital collections. For information about the proposal process, please see the PDFs posted below. Wooster’s campus committee for the Mellon grant includes: Jon Breitenbucher, Matthew Broda, Mark Christel, Heather Fitz Gibbon, Mark Gooch, and Denise Monbarren.

The campus selection committee will accept applications on a rolling basis. Our goal is to offer quick responses to proposals, i.e., usually within two weeks of submission.

Please note that all applications must be developed in collaboration with a librarian, who can offer assistance in developing the proposal. Applications must be submitted to Mark Christel.

If you have questions about the grant or application process, please contact your liaison librarian or Mark Christel.
