December 21, 2017 – CARL’s Strengthening Capacity Committee is pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 Practicing Librarian category of the Research in Librarianship Grant fund.

The Practicing Librarian Grant is awarded to new and established librarians working in research libraries and who are actively conducting research. It is intended to support projects involving structured, evidence-based research in libraries that propose answers to real-world issues.

CARL is very pleased to support the following four projects:

  • Diane Dawson, Jaclyn McLean, and Charlene Sorenson (University of Saskatchewan), ‘Communicating Cancellations to Campus: Strategies Across Canada’.
  • Lauren Byl (University of Waterloo), ‘Author Addendum Conundrum: Reconciling author use of addenda against publisher acceptance’.
  • Heather Dean (University of Victoria), ‘Finding Finding Aids: A Study of Legacy Metadata in Special Collections and University Archives at Canadian Research Libraries’.
  • Sajni Lacey and Susie Wilson (University of British Columbia), ‘Curriculum mapping as a tool to grow library-faculty partnerships: A case Study’.

“CARL is very pleased to be able to support and encourage research amongst our librarians through programs such as the Research Grants and the Librarians’ Research Institute.” said Vivian Lewis, University Librarian, McMaster University, and lead of the CARL Research in Librarianship Grants Jury. “The findings of this critical research are integral to informing our profession and communicating the value of librarians to the research enterprise.”
