Hi All,

I haven't posted here in a while, so hello from snowy, slushy NYC! I'm
writing to enlist your help.

We've had a surprisingly low application rate for our library research
awards. Surprising because we're offering $2,500 to conduct research in the
Barnard Archives, Center for Research on Woman and Zine Library, and all we
ask for in return is a blog post.

Would you consider alerting scholars at your own institutions (or apply
yourselves!) and perhaps share my call on any appropriate email lists, and
social media groups you're on where it hasn't been posted yet/in a while?

The post will appear below my sig block, for each copying and pasting (I

Gratefully, Jenna

The Barnard Library will award two grants of $2,500 to researchers using
its Archives <http://archives.barnard.edu>, Zine Library
<http://zines.barnard.edu> or Barnard Center for Research on Women
<http://bcrw.barnard.edu/> collection.


Undergraduate and graduate students, professors and independent scholars
from outside the New York metropolitan area are encouraged to apply

Particular strengths of the three collections are the history of the
college, second and third wave feminist and LGBTQ print ephemera
(1970s-present newsletters, pamphlets, zines, etc.), riot grrrl, late 20th
century girlhood, 20th century women's education, NYC modern dance history,
representations of women’s sexuality and embodiment, contemporary zine
culture, zines by women of color.

Award money may be used for whatever will facilitate the researcher's work
at Barnard, e.g., travel, housing, childcare.

Applications will be accepted through February 15, 2015. Award
notifications will be sent to applicants by April 30, 2015 for research to
be conducted at Barnard during the period July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2016.

*Librarians at Barnard were inspired to create this program by similar
awards at Columbia University
<http://libawards.cdrs.columbia.edu/index.php/lra/lra14> and the Sallie
Bingham Center for Women's History and Culture
