Faculty proposals welcomed for Library Collections Initiative

Proposals for the Library Collections Initiative will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the 2017-18 academic year. Launched in August, this new initiative supports the Jean and Alexander Heard Libraries.

All full-time, VU-employed and provost-reporting faculty are eligible to partner with a professional librarian to submit a proposal. Faculty can submit their applications using the InfoReady online portal. Ad hoc committees assembled from members from the newly established University Library Committee will review the proposals.

For more information about eligibility standards, proposal requirements and funding guidelines, visit the Library Collections Initiative website. Questions about the application process may be directed to Samantha Brown at 615-322-6067 or
