Grants: Another Form of Research
By Rachel Friedman, MMLIS, University Librarian
One of our duties here at the library is to research grants. While this does take a lot of time and careful evaluation, it is a potentially valuable source of university funding. Some grants have the added advantage of increasing the AUHS faculty’s level of prestige and experience. For example, many grants require their recipients to do research projects which require them to help others or increase human knowledge. It is important to realize that, even after the money has been spent, the honor of being quoted by the experts will still remain.
