About the Collection Grants
The Patrons of the Library will award grants to faculty members for the purpose of enhancing and diversifying Pollak Library’s print and electronic collections. This grant program has been established for one-time purchases of high-cost individual items or a large number of low-cost items. Areas of the collection needing particular attention due to a lack of growth in recent years or new areas of study will have priority. Materials purchased will directly support CSUF course curriculum and programs, and may be for a course, program, research or creative project, or general subject area. Digitized primary source materials, online reference sources, print books, electronic books, DVDs, and streaming media, are all viable examples of materials which faculty may include in their applications.
Please visit the Collection Grants section on our website for details on the program, how to apply, and important deadlines.
