Program Purpose

The purpose of the Research Funding Program is to encourage innovation of benefit to CARLI by assisting members with funds for research and publication that support the CARLI Strategic Priorities. Projects should have the potential to positively affect libraries and the library profession; have the potential to provide a useful addition to the existing literature; and results of the research should be of interest to or of use by other CARLI Governing Member Libraries.

  • The applicant must be currently employed by a CARLI Governing Member Library.
  • The project must be conducted in the library and information science field.
  • Proposals will be accepted from both individuals and those working collaboratively with others in their own organization or other CARLI Governing Member Libraries.

Application and Selection

  • The program does not have an application form.
  • To apply, the applicant must submit a complete proposal to CARLI at support@carli.illinois.edu.
  • Proposals will be read, scored, and ranked by a task force of CARLI Board of Directors members and CARLI staff.

o   Following application submission but before final selection, CARLI may request a revised proposal.

o   Final selection of funded proposals rests with the CARLI Board of Directors.

  • A complete proposal must include:

1.      A ten-page maximum proposal narrative with these components:

o   project title

o   description of the proposed research project including methodology and scope;

o   work plan for accomplishing this project;

o   projected outcomes in support of the CARLI Strategic Priorities;

3.      A detailed budget.

4.      An abstract (200 words maximum).

5.      A timeline targeting dates for major activities, deliverables, and stakeholder involvement as appropriate.

6.      Additional requirements for 13-24 month projects only:

o   A budget for years one and two, and a summary budget.

o   A timeline for years one and two with benchmark goals to be completed by which progress will be measured.

o   Annual progress reports, including progress on benchmark goals and budget reports for each participating institution, due by June 30 of year one.

Evaluation and Funding

  • Proposals will be reviewed for thoroughness; potential to positively impact CARLI member libraries and the library profession; and potential to provide a useful addition to the existing literature.
  • Up to $1,000 may be included for travel to present research findings at a conference. Specific details about the conference and cost estimates for travel must be included within the budget portion of the proposal.
  • Indirect costs, such as college/university administrative costs, will not be covered by the program.

Conditions of Award

Have you wanted your library to…

  • Create a powerful impact narrative for your library?
  • Use data in a compelling way to tell your library′s story to your stakeholders?
  • Demonstrate how your library supports graduation and retention rates?

“CARLI Counts: Analytics and Advocacy for Service Development,” is a three-year project funded by an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program grant, in the amount of $243,885.

CARLI Counts is a continuing education library leadership immersion program that prepares librarians to make effective use of research findings on the impact of academic libraries on student success for the twin purposes of service development and library advocacy. Program participants will learn how to use local library data analytics in alignment with institutional data, goals, and strategic priorities to improve their services and demonstrate their value. Deliverables will include a portfolio of local case studies, an evaluation of the collective statewide impact of those cases, and a replicable state/regional training model for equipping librarians to be campus leaders in assessing library impact on student learning and success, all of which will be made openly available on the CARLI website. CARLI is working in partnership with the University of Illinois Library at Urbana-Champaign and Lewis & Clark Community College.

Cohort members attend two, three-day in-person sessions, for a total of six in-person days; webinars held in April, May, June, September, and October; and work online collaboratively throughout the program, culminating in team presentations at the CARLI Annual Meeting in November.

Cohort 2 will meet February 18-20, and July 14-16, 2020, at the I Hotel in Champaign. Lodging and meals are paid for by the grant. Travel to Champaign will be the responsibility of the participant. Participants will also be expected to attend the CARLI Annual Meeting, on November 13, 2020, in Champaign. Cohort 2 will complete their work in early 2021.

View the detailed timeline.

To be considered for participation, complete the Library Application Form, and submit it to Anne Craig.

Libraries will be invited to participate based on evaluation of these criteria:

  • Strength of the application narrative
  • Statewide geographical representation among the applicant pool
  • Diverse library type representation among the applicant pool (public university, private institutions, community colleges)

Cohort 2 applications are due by Wednesday, December 4. Library Directors/Deans will be notified of decisions by Friday, December 6.
