Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This comprehensive guide outlines each step of the process for obtaining grants, providing examples and definitions along the way. Emphasizing the importance of planning, including a variety of personnel, and establishing clear goals and objectives, the authors define 19 different categories of grants, including challenge grants and seed grants. The specifics of the grant-writing process are next outlined, with a focus on the written project. Finally, the steps to take after the grant is either approved or denied are examined and suggestions for improving an unsuccessful bid are offered. An up-to-date annotated bibliography, an exhaustive list of Internet resources, glossaries of both grant and technology-related terms, and a list of frequently asked questions such as "How many pages is a typical proposal?" are appended. This helpful and easy-to-use handbook should be a part of every professional collection.-Susan McCaffrey, Haslett High School, MI Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
