Help! I’m an Accidental Government Information Librarian presents … The National Science Foundation: Statistical data and grantseeker resources

The Government Resources Section of the North Carolina Library Association welcomes you to a series of webinars designed to help us increase our familiarity with government information. All are welcome because government information wants to be free.

This webinar will give an overview of the National Science Foundation, or NSF, website. The two main areas covered will be (1) accessing NSF-sponsored statistics and (2) understanding the NSF’s grantmaking structure. The NSF is the main government unit funding and studying the nation’s science and technology development. The NSF collects and disseminates statistical data on state science and technology indicators and science and engineering research in higher education. And, have you seen those notes that say “Funded in part by the NSF” or something similar?
That’s the National Science Foundation at work. They are the largest U. S. federal agency that funds research on all science and technology except for human health. Any campus with faculty in the research sciences (chemistry, physics, computer science, biology, technology, and more) has reason to be interested in the NSF. So whether you are interested in supporting statistical needs about U.S. science or supporting faculty researchers when they are looking for NSF funding, this session will give you a starting place!

Nina Exner is the Researcher and Grant Support Services librarian at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. She has her MLS from NCCU, an MA from UNC-G, and is a current doctoral candidate at UNC-CH. Her professional focus is on supporting faculty and graduate students with their research, and serves as the “embedded” librarian with NC A&T’s Office of Research Development (including sponsored programs). This embedding brings scholarly communications, information literacy, and reference consultations into campus sponsored research programs.

We will meet together for Session #62, online on September 19 from 12:00 –
1:00 p.m. (Eastern). Please RSVP for the session using this link:

We will use WebEx for the live session. Information on testing and accessing the session will be made available when you register.

The session will be recorded and available after the live session, linked from the NCLA GRS web page
and YouTube channel

All LIS professionals with an interest in military or government librarianship are welcome to join us for the next Military Libraries Training Workshop (MLTW) in 2017.

FYI: MLTW is now biennial. We will meet in 2017, 2019, et cetera. What hasn’t changed is that we will work very hard to provide you with

  • great sessions,
  • the opportunity to meet and share ideas with professional colleagues from all military branches,
  • and useful information and insights you can take back to your libraries.

We hope that you can join us.
