The Foundation Center
The Graduate Library houses a Foundation Center Funding Information Network collection devoted to foundations and grant-seeking resources. The print collection is located in the Reference Reading Room on the second floor of Hatcher North. This collection is open to the public as well as to the University community. Additionally, three databases are accessible within the walls of the Library via: http://fconline.
The Office of Research and Sponsored Projects administers grants from external funders for the entire University. They also maintain the SAW database.
