Collaborative Grant-Seeking: A Practical Guide for Librarians

Grace Romund

Abstract


According to Bess G. de Farber in Collaborative grant-seeking: a practical guide for librarians, grant-seeking is an important tool for librarians who strive to respond to constantly changing library and information landscapes. She holds the opinion that grants are untapped resources and opportunities for librarians to improve the quality of service and programming in their libraries. She emphasizes not only the importance of developing competences in grant-writing for library-specific projects, but also librarians are better able to serve their clients who are grant-seeking when they themselves have a better understanding of grant-seeking.
