FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES FOR INFORMATION BEHAVIOR RESEARCH

Researchers embarking on a research project in information behavior (IB) are often not aware of the grants available to them, while funding agencies may not know about the pertinent research in IB. At this symposium the representatives from major funding agencies, such as IMLS, NIH, NSF, OCLC, and DLG, will present their programs and learn from the participants about research conducted in IB. Participants will also discuss IB research funding issues with successful research grant recipients. Formal papers are not expected; the symposium will focus on professional development in a seminar format designed for novice and experienced researchers alike. Those who wish to participate need to submit a 100-150 words paragraph to June Abbas (abbasjm@buffalo.edu) by September 15, 2004, with description of their IB research (topic, RQs, user population, theory, methodology) and the names of funding agencies of interest. Upon receiving an email confirmation from the symposium organizers the participants should use the link below to register for the symposium.
