LCR is part of the overall University of Calgary re-entry strategy. We are working to restore some essential services as quickly as possible in a way that is safe for you - our users- and our staff and in the context of the overall campus re-entry plan. We will continue to offer our suite of online services and will also be expanding access to online books and resources. Virtual service hours today: 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Physical locations remain closed. You can return your books to the exterior book drop on the East side of the TFDL. More information on the Covid 19 page.

Internal Sub-Grant Competition 2018 funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation



Libraries and Cultural Resources invites submissions of letters of intent for the Academic Research and University Libraries: Creating a New Model for Collaboration sub-granting competition.

This internal sub-granting competition, funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, targets multidisciplinary research projects (involving a research team from two or more different departments) in the thematic areas of Smart Cities, Arctic Studies, and Cultural Discourse as part of a research project, led by Principal Investigator Thomas Hickerson.

The sub-grants support scholar-led research while informing the evolution of a library research platform—defined as a suite of common services, such as digitization and metadata support, technical infrastructure, such as visualization and collaborative spaces, and expertise, in areas including data management and rights management— to support multidisciplinary research. However, there are likely services, technologies and expertise that the library needs to develop which will be informed through this competition targeting research projects in the thematic areas of Smart Cities, Arctic Studies, and Cultural Discourse.  Subgrants may request up to $40,000 of funding.

This is the final round of sub-grants.  Important dates:

  • Letter of intent due July 15, 2018
  • Letter of intent adjudication notifications will be made the first week of August 2018
  • Full proposals due September 16, 2018
  • Proposal adjudication notifications will be made the first week of October 2018
  • Start of funded projects November 1, 2018
  • Completion of projects July 15, 2019

For more information about the subgrant process, the Academic Research and University Libraries project, or for the opportunity to discuss potential projects with library staff we will be holding drop-in information sessions at the Taylor Family Digital Library's Gallery Hall:
