Using Grant Information

Grant materials may be used by any member of the public. The print collection does not circulate, but photocopiers and scanners are available. Information provided by computers usually can be printed for a small per-page fee or downloaded. Users do their own research; librarians at the Reference Desk are available to offer basic assistance.


The UO Library will be offering occasional workshops on finding grants and foundation information. To find out more, contact Katy Lenn
