Library Grants Policy


Recognizing Excellence at the University of Illinois Library

The Recognizing Excellence blog celebrates the many contributions of the library’s faculty and staff.  Both the practitioners and researchers who enable the daily functioning of the library are also involved in making it a dynamic and world class institution.  The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is the proud home of one of the largest and richest public research library collections in North America. Likewise, its exceptional strength in people and the caliber of their work is well worth recognizing.

Library Research and Publication Committee

A ready source of support and guidance on research projects is available to librarians at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The Research and Publication Committee was established to:

  • Encourage research and publication by providing monetary support.
  • Stimulate discussion of research ideas and methodologies.
  • Serve as a clearinghouse of information about outside sources of funding.
  • Provide practical criticism of research projects.
  • Act as an advocate for the research interests of the Library faculty.
