The application process for faculty studies in the Rockefeller Library for academic year 2022-23 is now open. Applications will be accepted through May 16, 2022.
The following categories of need will receive priority:
- Current faculty engaged in research requiring intensive use of library resources, programs, and services that are best served on-site within the Library. For Academic Years 2021-22 and 2022-23, priority will be given to tenure-track faculty whose research has been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Collaborative research projects making use of library materials and requiring shared workspace. Such projects — potentially involving visitors, postdocs, and students — must have a faculty lead who oversees the work and is responsible for submitting the request.
- Emeritus faculty actively engaged in research for whom departmental space is not available.
- Other scholarly needs that fall outside these categories will also be considered, but should be justified with reference to the need for proximity to library resources, programs, and services.
A total of 25 studies will be available, with occupancy starting on September 1, 2022 (campus health and safety conditions permitting). Studies may be requested for any combination of Fall, Spring, and Summer (June/July) terms, for a maximum of 11 months. All study rooms must be vacated by the beginning of August, which is reserved for cleaning and repair work.
We anticipate informing applicants at the beginning of June.
