The University Library received 13 applications for the 2007 Course Development Small Grants program designed to support faculty members in their efforts to integrate information literacy instruction into teaching and assignments. As announced, only three grants were available for 2007 (with only one available per college). Once again, however, many of the proposals were outstanding. In addition to the three winning proposals, the Interim Dean of the Graduate College also chose to fund a proposal supporting the Graduate College's program. The following three individuals will be awarded $1,000 Course Development Small Grants for Information Literacy by the Library for 2007.
- Petru S. Fodor, Physics (College of Science)
- Oksun Lee, Art Department (College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences)
- Wenbing Zhao, Electrical and Computer Engineering (College of Engineering)
The College of Graduate Studies will also fund a Course Development Small Grant for Information Literacy. The recipient of this grant is:
- Paul Lin, Department of Mechanical Engineering (College of Engineering)
Three other proposals were of such outstanding merit that the review panel encouraged the Library Director to acknowledge them with a partial award.
These individuals are:
- Ronald S. Beebe, Department of Curriculum and Foundations (College of Education and Human Services)
- Stephen Cory, History (College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences)
- Monica Gordon Pershey, Health Sciences, (College of Science)
