ACRL Friends Fund Wants to Give Your Group Money!

Monday, November 1st, 2010

About Timothy Hackman

Librarian for English & Linguistics, University of Maryland Libraries. Member of LES since 2006.

The Friends of ACRL, academic and research librarians, provide monetary support to enhance and ensure the relevance of our profession.  ACRL committees, interest groups, and sections can submit proposals for funding to the ACRL Friends Fund Disbursement Subcommittee for projects that support professional development, advocacy, innovative programming, and the Board strategic plan initiatives.

Proposals are being accepted through November 30, 2010 and will be evaluated by the Friends Fund Disbursement Subcommittee in December 2010.  The subcommittee’s recommendations for funding are based on the individual merits of each proposal. (Review criteria are available as a Word document.)

Funding recommendations will be submitted for final approval to the ACRL Budget and Finance Committee at the ALA MidwinterMeeting.  Members who submit proposals will be contacted regarding decisions after the MidwinterMeeting concludes.

For more information, see the “ACRL Friends Fund Disbursement Process”
(Section 6.7.6 in the ACRL Guide to Policies and Procedures) or contact Janis Bandelin,, Chair, Friends Fund Disbursement Subcommittee. Need more time? There will be another call for proposals in spring 2011.
