ACRL Grants Awards

The Committee on Grants of the Association of College and Research Libraries awarded grants to ninety academic institutions totaling approximately $58,000. In addition to this amount, approximately $5,000 was spent for the service of Committee consultants sent to emerging institutions and for administrative expense. Out of a total of 289 applications for resources and consultants’ services, sixty-two grants were approved; of ninety-one applications for Library Bureau equipment, fourteen grants were given; of the fourteen applications for special grants, twelve received consultant assistance and seven received an additional grant; and of the twelve applications for research grants, two were approved.

Principal support for the ACRL Grants Program was from the United States Steel Foundation, with additional contributions from; Library Bureau (Remington Office Systems Division, Sperry Rand Corporation), McGraw- Hill, Inc., Olin Mathieson, The H. W. Wilson Foundation, Pitney-Bowes, and Time, Inc. At its annual sessions during the last week of November, the Committee discussed the future of the program, and the continuing need for additional donors. A sub-committee was named by the chairman to report at the Midwinter ALA meeting on the costs involved in having a brochure designed by a professional concern, and it is hoped that a final decision will be made on this project before the end of the year.

The special emphasis given to developing institutions, primarily in the southern states, has involved asking librarian-consultants to investigate and report on these special grant applicants. Criteria were developed to guide the consultants, and we only regret that funds were not available to assist more of these institutions.

Although federal support is available to most academic libraries, the large number of applications each year for ACRL Grants indicates that the program is justified and continues to serve a genuine need among small colleges. It is our hope that corporations who benefit from academic library services may realize the importance of the program and become future contributors.

In addition to the devoted efforts of George M. Bailey, ACRL executive secretary, other members of the Committee for 1967-1968 were: Humphrey Bousfield, Brooklyn College; Helen M. Brown, Wellesley College; Miss Johnnie E. Givens, Austin Peay State College (Tennessee); James Humphry, III, Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York); Virginia Lacy Jones, Atlanta University; and Rev. Vincent

Dr. Virginia Lacy Jones presents the check to Dr. John R. Bertrand, president of Berry College, while JoelA. Stowers, librarian at Berry College, looks on.
