OCLC/ALISE Library & Information Science Research Grant Program

OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Incorporated and OCLC Research, in collaboration with the Association for Library and Information Science Education (ALISE), announce the Library and Information Science Research Grant Program (LISRGP) for 2017 and invite research proposals.

Program description

In recognition of the importance of research to the advancement of librarianship and information science, OCLC and ALISE promote independent research that helps integrate new technologies that offer innovative approaches and contributes to a better understanding of the information environment and user expectations and behaviors.

Research related (but not limited) to the following areas is encouraged:
  • The major OCLC Research themes listed at: http://www.oclc.org/research/activities.html
  • Impact of digital technology on libraries, museums, and archives
  • Social media, learning, and information-seeking behavior
  • New developments in knowledge organization (metadata, social tagging, linked data, etc.)


Full-time academic faculty in schools of library and information science or related fields are eligible to apply. OCLC and ALISE encourage international proposals and collaborative projects under this program. To aid new researchers, priority will be given when possible to proposals from junior faculty and applicants who have not previously received LISRGP funds. Proposals must be signed by the principal investigator, by the dean/director (or equivalent) of the school, and by an authorized official of the university.

Project funding

The LISRGP provides grant awards of up to $25,000 for a one-year research project. Monies can be applied to the following costs:
  • Release time from teaching for the principal investigator
  • Research assistants
  • Stipends
  • Project-related travel
  • Required attendance and presentation of research results at the 2018 ALISE Conference
  • Equipment, if integral to the research
  • Other research expenses
