Local Grants Recipients

On January 26, 2017, the LAUC-R membership voted to distribute professional development funds solely to individual librarians and discontinue the previous practice of putting funds aside for a local research grant. From this date forth, all professional development funds provided for within the LX contract, the discretionary UL-designated funds provided to non-represented librarians, and additional funds for represented librarians will be distributed directly to all librarians equally, incorporating requirements from the current LX contract for represented librarians.

Systemwide LAUC provides research grants for librarians; the information can be found on their website.
