Research Sprints: One Week, One Project

Research Sprints offer faculty and academic staff the chance to work intensively with a team of librarians for one week on a project. Whether creating a new course, applying for a research grant, or tackling a chunk of your latest research project. Research Sprints is a quick way for you to accomplish your goals. Research Sprints will be held May 14-18 in Watson Library. 

We anticipate accepting up to three proposals for this May. Applications are due 5 pm Fri., April 13. To learn more about Research Sprints and the application process, browse through the tabs on the right. Additionally, KU Libraries will host an Information Session 11 am to 12 pm Tues., March 27 in Watson Library, room 455. Interested applicants are invited to attend to learn more about the program, discuss the application process, and share their project ideas with each other. To RSVP, please email Tami Albin at albin@ku.edu.
