Jennifer Boettcher, Georgetown's business librarian, has won this year’s Emerald Research Grant Award. The grant is given yearly to support research in the field of business librarianship by the Business Reference and Services Section (BRASS) of the Reference and User Services Association (RUSA) division of the American Library Association. Boettcher will use the grant to create a Web-based finding aid that will help both business librarians and patrons use core business titles that have been discounted, sold or recreated into new formats. The database will track these sources and provide a list of where to find similar information that these seminal works provided. In selecting Boettcher’s proposal for this year’s award, the committee highlighted the thorough and detailed methodology, scope, timetable and projected outcomes for the project. Keep an eye out for this excellent project!
