Naming contest for new library blog

The James M. Milne Library’s Special Collections is launching a new blog! We need help naming it, though.

Further contest information can be viewed on the library’s social media accounts (Facebook and Instagram). To easily access our social media accounts, view this link:

In addition to looking for a name, we’re also looking for writers and articles! Submissions are accepted from anyone affiliated with the SUNY Oneonta community (faculty, students, staff, etc.). View our blog and check out our Blog Submissions Guideline page to learn more details:

We have one post up already! It’s an interesting read on the history of the Oneonta Archery Program.

Faculty research/creative activity grant program

Spring 2018 Funding Round Announced (for funding commencing July 1, 2018) – Deadline April 9, 2018.

The Faculty/Professional Staff Research and Creative Activity Grant Program is designed to support faculty in all disciplines to conduct research or creative activity. Applicants may request up to $3,000 for the funding period ending June 30, 2019. Funds awarded through this program may only be used to cover costs associated with the proposed research or creative activity, such as necessary travel (to conduct the work), supplies, analysis costs, student assistants, etc.

Grant applicants must be paid employees of SUNY Oneonta at least through the fall 2018 semester. Adjunct and part-time instructors are welcome to submit applications, provided they have a contract for the fall 2018 semester. Faculty on sabbatical leave in the fall 2018 or spring 2019 semesters are also eligible to apply. Priority in funding decisions will be given to junior faculty and applicants who have not received previous awards, and to projects that engage students.

The application deadline is 5 p.m. Monday, April 9, 2018. Guidelines and application materials are available on the Grants Development Office website. Questions? Contact Chris Barberio (x2434) or Kathy Meeker (x2632).
