Foundation Directory Online

The Library is now providing access to the Foundation Directory online, the "grant seeker's best friend", to help those who are exploring grant opportunities to find current sources of funding. If this resource proves useful to the NECO community, the library will continue its subscription when it comes up for renewal in one year.

Because of the nature of our subscription, the Directory is available for use in the library only. Please see Kristin Motte if you'd like to use it, and don't hesitate to ask any questions or to provide feedback.
