Reference Materials Awards:

The National Endowment for the Humanities Reference Materials
Program supports projects to prepare reference works that will improve
access to information and resources. Support is available for the
creation of dictionaries, historical or linguistic atlases, encyclopedias,
concordances, reference grammars, data bases, text bases, and other
projects that will provide essential scholarly tools for the advancement
of research or for general reference purposes.

Grants also may support projects that will assist scholars and researchers
to locate information about humanities documentation. Such projects
result in scholarly guides that allow researchers to determine the
usefulness or relevance of specific materials for their work. Eligible for
support are such projects as bibliographies, bibliographic data bases,
catalogues raisonnes, other descriptive catalogues, indexes, union lists,
and other guides to materials in the humanities.

In both areas, support is also available for projects that address
important issues related to the design or accessibility of reference works.

The application deadline is September 15, 1994 for projects beginning
after July 1, 1995. Guidelines are not yet available electronically. Print
copies of guidelines may be requested by sending a message with your
regular mail address to NEHOPA@GWUVM.GWU.EDU. Potential
applicants with questions regarding specific projects should contact
program staff at (202) 606-8358 or NEHRES@GWUVM.GWU.EDU.
