Stanley B Greenfield Faculty Awards

Stanley B. Greenfield Faculty Awards


The Stanley B. Greenfield Faculty Awards Program recognizes the need to enhance the Library's collection of research materials. The program was named in honor of Stanley B. Greenfield, former professor of English at the University of Oregon, member of the Friends of the Libraries Board of Directors, and long-time Library advocate. Through this program, UO faculty members nominate significant research titles for possible purchase. The Library Administration will select titles from the nominees and make awards to acquire those titles. All purchases are funded through the combination of the Greenfield Awards Endowment Fund and designated private gifts.


Over the winter and spring terms of 2014, the UO Libraries will be in the process of replacing its current catalog and database interfaces, moving to a new backend system and public facing discovery layer that will integrate the holdings of all the Summit libraries, along with the content of many databases and full-text journals.    The implementation process will take place over several months beginning in January 2014 as staff focus on preparing the database, exporting holdings, configuring settings and testing the software.    In order to accomplish these migration tasks, regular activities in the system like purchasing, transferring, replacing, etc. materials will need to be curtailed early in the spring term.   In light of these exceptional circumstances, the UO Libraries will not be able to administer the Greenfield Awards process in 2014.    Instead, look for the Greenfield Awards and nomination process to return in 2015.    Please direct any questions or concerns to Mark Watson, Associate University Librarian for Research Services (
