Funding Discovery Tools Workshop
Funding discovery databases help researchers identify opportunities from public and private funders. UVA now has access to two discovery tools licensed by the Vice Provost for Research: Pivot and GrantForward. These tools allow faculty, students and staff to search for funding and set up email search alerts based on a researcher’s area of interest.
The Library offers workshops on using these tools! Come learn how to create an account, search the databases, share funding opportunities with others, as well as save search strategies for email alerts regarding new opportunities. All students, faculty and staff have the ability to create personal accounts. The workshop will be held from 10:30 a.m. to noon, Thursday, Oct. 12, in Room 133, Brown Science & Engineering Library. Please be sure to bring a laptop. Register here: http://cal.lib.virginia.edu/event/3572873
