Engaging with Community

Librarians can assist you with speaking to the requirements of your funding agency for a demonstration of the broader impacts of your work–i.e. your engagement with our larger community of stakeholders (scholars, practitioners and general public).

Speak to Requirements of Funding Agency – Public Access Compliance and Broader Impacts

Additional federal agency policies that have been developed in response to the memorandum (issued February 2013) from the Office of Science and Technology are summarized in an Ebling Library research guide to Federal Agency Public Access Requirements.
