Library Reference and the Grantsmanship Process.
Bartkovich, Jeffrey P.
To provide faculty and administrators with information on funding, the Learning Resources Center's library reference staff at the New River Community College in Dublin, Virginia, developed three 50-minute mini-seminars consisting of lectures and discussions followed by questions and hands on practice. Instructional objectives of the program stress the content of relevant sources and how to retrieve that information. Field testing the program and agenda determined the amount of time needed to discuss each of the major reference tools and identified which sources were to be covered in-depth. The introduction precedes grantsmanship in general and foundations reference aids in Mini-Seminar 1. Mini-Seminar 2 covers newsletters, tabloids, and updating services for federal aid, while Mini-Seminar 3 includes rules and regulations, preparing grant request aids, and the conclusion. The reference staff also developed a form for grant applicants to provide information necessary for identifying relevant funding sources. Five attachments and a basic search strategy are provided.
