Are you a UNCG faculty member working on a research project for which you would like to create a freely shared, open access digital component? If so, consider applying for a Digital Partners Grant of $22,500 worth of resources from the University Libraries, which will assist you in building an online scholarly product and making it broadly available for the long term
To apply, simply fill out a short one-page online form by January 12. The Selection Committee will review submissions and announce recipients by the end of February. We are happy to help you with the form! All you need is a good idea and we'll guide you through the application process. The awards' funding period is March 2016 - February 2017.
Applicants must be UNCG faculty members. The digital project must be hosted on the Library's servers, and must be Open Access and freely shared. The Faculty member must resolve any copyright or intellectual property issues (but we can help with that).
Selection of the funded project will be based on the following criteria:
- Projects that build on the strengths of the Libraries' extant digital projects
- Projects that develop a library of resources that support a range of scholarly activities in general rather than creating teaching applications or custom-designed web sites for a specific course.
