In early 2007, staff from the University of Minnesota Libraries and the Office of the Vice President for Research began a collaboration to present a workshop covering grant resources. The session introduced faculty, staff, and graduate students to four key databases of external granting opportunities as well as intramural funding sources. We explain the context, development, and implementation of this ongoing, popular workshop; mention extensions of the workshop effort; and hope to inspire fellow librarians to identify and explore routes to broad institutional engagement.

This article provides an overview of a collaborative project between the University of Oregon Libraries, Infographics Lab, and an Art History professor to create a virtual research guide, Archaeology and Landscape in the Altai Mountains of Mongolia, and accompanying digital image archives. This project serves a model for preserving humanities data and creates a collaborative strategy for presenting faculty research output in a new media environment. In addition to the typical challenges faced in digital projects, the specialized nature of the content and multiple participants with varied areas of expertise added additional challenges. Equipped with lessons learned, a new model can be created for libraries to support and preserve faculty research.
