The proposal should address specifically the relevance to the proposed research of unique resources found in the Princeton University Library collections. Prospective grantees are urged to consult the Library’s home page at http://libweb.princeton.edu for detailed descriptions of the collections, especially those in the Rare Books and Special Collections Department, and for the names of curators and reference staff. Applicants should have specific Princeton resources in mind—not simply a desire to make use of a major research library—as they prepare their proposals.
A committee consisting of members of the faculty, the library staff, and the Friends will award the grants on the basis of the relevance of the proposal to unique holdings of the library, the merits and significance of the project, and the applicant’s scholarly qualifications. Awards will be made before 1 April 2007.
