Have a great idea for how your library can engage with a certain segment of your community in a new way? Want to try out an idea for improving service at your library? Been thinking about a creative way to market your library and its services? Focused on advancing ATLA’s Organizational Ends, Library Impact Grants are designed to help professionals engaged in librarianship and scholarly communication in advocating and collaborating to advance scholarship in theological and religious disciplines.
ATLA member libraries are encouraged to create or expand their programming and services in innovative ways that directly impact the communities they serve, be it faculty, administrators, staff, students, or other constituents. The grant provides funding to create new or improve existing library programs or services.
Projects should focus on one or more of the following areas:
- Promoting the profession
- Marketing the library and its services
- Connecting members for networking and idea sharing related to marketing, promotion and advocacy
Applicants must submit an application which includes a program overview and a detailed project plan including objectives, intended outcomes, evaluation measures, timeline, and budget.
