EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) and Electronic Resources & Libraries (ER&L) are offering a fellowship to support research on trending topics of interest to the information industry. The ER&L/EBSCO Library Research Fellowship will provide up to $4,000 to fund researchers interested in conducting research on issues related to management of electronic resources in the information industry.

The ER&L/EBSCO Library Research Fellowship, formerly called the Information to Inspiration Fellowship, aims to fuel dialogue about issues of importance among library and information professionals in order to provide solutions that will benefit end users and meet institutional objectives. EBSCO will share the findings to inform and inspire librarians worldwide as well as encourage the exchange of ideas that will advance the field of librarianship and the careers of researchers.

The topic of the fellowship is measuring and evaluating use, users and usage. Interested researchers must submit a 250-word essay explaining the proposed research project and how library professionals will benefit from it. Research funding will support all aspects of research, including compensation for time devoted to research efforts, obtaining necessary research materials, and conducting polls, surveys and other activities that will support findings.
