CILIP - Library and Information Research Group (LIRG), Research Award
The deadline for this award has been extended to the 31st January 2015. The purpose of the Award is to encourage research and innovation in library and information science. Particular attention will be paid to proposals intended to improve the accessibility, retrievability and usefulness of information. The maximum value of the Award is £2500. The Award is co-sponsored by Health Libraries Group and PTFS Europe.
The Award may be used to defray research expenses (e.g. travel, postage costs), to fund attendance at high level meetings or to fund a study tour. However, a clear overall aim for the research must be stated. Visits for general professional development will not be considered. For the evaluation criteria to be used and further information about the award, please see the LIRG Website at the link below.
