Albert B. Alkek Library, Library Research Grants
  • Contact: Joan Heath, Assistant Vice President for Alkek Library, jh06@txstate.edu, 512-245-2133
  • Faculty members who need materials not in the library collection to support their research are invited to submit a proposal for a Library Research Grant. Each year the Alkek Library provides funds to acquire non-curricular materials for this purpose. Although the review process is competitive, most professionally written proposals have been funded in recent years.
  • $20,000 in funding is available. Proposals over $3,000 are unlikely to receive full funding. Materials requested may include books, back issues of journals, electronic resources, AV materials, computer software. Requests should not include current subscriptions, journal articles or multiple copies of materials. Applicants are asked to provide a brief description of the project, a list of needed materials, and the estimated cost.
