A How-to-do-it Manual for Librarians With Multimedia Tutorials and Grant Development ToolsBook - 2010
Written by two experts who have won millions in grants from an astonishing variety of funding sources, Winning Grants is a combination workbook, how-to-manual, and multimedia workshop. Now presented in Neal-Schuman's newly revised How-To-Do-It series layout, Winning Grants gives you MacKellar's and Gerding's combined decades of successful grant-getting techniques in an accessible design so you can master these complex processes more easily. The authors' expertise is unique as they have been on all sides of the grant process as grant writers, reviewers, project coordinators, consultants, and trainers. They have maintained the popular Library Grants Blog (http: //librarygrants.blogspot.com) for over five years, helping librarians find grant opportunities easily and at no cost. This multimedia packages features three sections. Part I, "The Grant Process Cycle," presents the full grant process cycle with MacKellar and Gerding sharing invaluable procedural advice that distinguishes proposals that receive sustained funding. Part II, "Library Grant Success Stories," showcases real-life success stories that demonstrate the process in practice and provide motivational tips from successful library staff. Part III, "The Winning Grants Multimedia Toolkit and DVD," includes time-saving tools, such as reusable checklists, worksheets, and templates. All of these tools are both in the book and reproduced as Microsoft Word documents on the multimedia DVD so you can make these templates your own and share them with colleagues. The DVD includes the entire text of successful grant proposals plus ten instructional videos to walk you through each step of the grant process cycle: 1: Grant Process Cycle Overview 2: Planning for Success 3: Discovering and Designing the Grant Project 4: Organizing the Grant Team 5: Understanding the Sources and Resources 6: Researching and Selecting the Right Grant 7: Creating and Submitting the Winning Proposal 8: Getting Fund
