Call for submissions: business librarianship research proposals for 2013 Emerald Research Grant

Submissions will be accepted until April 12 for the 2013 Emerald Research Grant Award  offered by RUSA‘s Business Reference and Services Section (BRASS).

Due to technical difficulties, the award committee asks anyone who has already submitted a proposal to re-submit their materials to Kim Bloedel at New proposals should also be sent to this same address.

The Emerald Research Grant Award, sponsored by Emerald Group Publishing Limited offers one award of $5,000 and a citation to an individual or team seeking support to conduct research in business librarianship. The awards will be presented at the RUSA Awards Ceremony at the ALA Annual Conference in Chicago. Recipients will be required to attend the RUSA Awards Ceremony.

Candidates must submit a detailed proposal outlining their proposed research project; methodology, scope and timetable; how this project fits into the existing literature; and projected outcomes, including a statement outlining how this research will benefit the library profession. Proposals will be reviewed for thoroughness; potential to positively impact the library profession; and potential to provide a useful addition to the existing library literature. Proposals will be accepted from both individual researchers and those working collaboratively. At least one member of a collaborative team must be a member of ALA.
