The Robert Lundeen Library Faculty Development Award is designed to encourage and to provide funding for meaningful faculty development through the pursuit of scholarship or professional capacity-building activities. Priority is given to projects that explore research opportunities or acquire new skills that will benefit the Libraries & Press as well as the faculty member.

This award was made possible by the generous donation of OSU alumnus Bob Lundeen, a former member of the Library Advisory Council and a tremendous supporter of OSU Libraries and Press.
