The Center manages several endowments that provide funds for library acquisitions, such as the complete run of a journal or a database of otherwise inaccessible material. These funds are meant to supplement, not replace, the normal library purchasing fund, and may be used to build the collection in one of the University’s recently inaugurated areas of study. Proposals should specify the importance of items proposed for purchase to a community of users; these funds are not intended to purchase materials of interest to only one faculty member. The Center accepts applications for these awards throughout the year on a rolling basis.

Please note that the application is currently being revised together with the BU Libraries.
