Finding Funding: How to Find Non-Government Grants for Your Research!
Faculty and graduate students learn from their colleagues and advisors about grant funding opportunities from the government. But did you know that there are many non-governmental non-profits who generously fund education and research projects in the humanities, the social sciences, and the sciences?
Rebecca Jackson, ISU Library, will show you how to find these important funding resources, and Donna Van Pelt, ISU Foundation, will help you with information and tips about applying for these non-profit foundation grants.
Thursday, March 28, 3:00 - 4:30 p.m.

Blinded by the Cites? Finding Works That Cite Great Research (Including Yours)
Do you know how many times that "perfect" research article you found has been cited? How have its results been used by other researchers? How can you tell who has cited it and how often?
This workshop will alert you to strategies and techniques for doing "cited reference searching" - following a citation forward in time to trace its impact. These skills are helpful whether you're working on a thesis or discovering who is citing your research.
Thursday, April 11, 9:30 - 11:00 p.m.
