The Cleveland State University Library invites applications for the Information Literacy Small Grants Program. Six grants of $800 will be awarded to full-time faculty for course development to integrate information literacy instruction, especially in capstone courses.

Grant applications are due Friday, April 18 for development of courses for fall 2008.

The small grants are intended to assist faculty in updating their courses and assignments to engage students in the learning and research process.
