Grants for New Tenure Track Faculty
- Each new Tenure Track faculty member will receive a grant from the Friends of Robert Hutchings Goddard Library (FGL).
- The library will send a letter out to new faculty when they start at the university with detailed information.
- A new Tenure Track Faculty member has 3 years to spend his/her FGL grant.
- This grant is to be used to fill in gaps in the Library collection that relate to that faculty member's field of study.
- It is for one time purchases, only. It cannot be used for serials because there are ongoing costs after the 3 years of the grant.
- Please contact your Department Chair or your Department Library Liaison concerning ordering books for the Library from your Department's Library allocation, which again is separate from the FGL grants.
- Please email firstname.lastname@example.org (or call x7570) Brittney Bergholm, Acquisitions and Serials Coordinator, for order cards and any questions and concerns.
