I just recently received news that a grant proposal submitted by myself and a coworker was accepted! Mentioned back in my Grants galore! post, the grant is for marketing efforts within the academic library where I work. We’re going to use the funds to create and produce a promotional banner for tabling at departmental and divisional events (to promote the library and our collections/services/location/etc.!) and promotional handouts/postcards so that we have something to give people at these tabling events.
Now comes the hard/exciting part of putting together the promotional materials and getting them printed at Document Services… I’ll definitely be posting updates on this project, as it is my first major grant project, as well as one of my first major marketing projects. In addition to creating the promotional materials, we also have to eventually submit a narrative report on our project once it is completed.
