Help Finding Research Funding and Collaborators

Two people shaking hands

As a center of interdisciplinary scholarship, FSU Libraries can help you connect with the partners you need for academic research success. We can provide guidance on grant proposal writing and funding agency requirements, as well as connect you with communities of practice in your field.

How Can We Help?

We are available to partner on funded projects and can be written into grants as expert personnel. We can provide guidance with funding agency requirements as they pertain to public access, data sharing, and digital persistent identifiers. See our Subject Librarian and Research Specialist Directory to find contacts on specific topics. We can also:

Open Scholars Project

Community of practice for researchers who are interested in adopting open science practices, including open publishing, open data, and open education


Help you use SciVal to identify high-impact research topics and potential collaborators


Advise on time-saving strategies such as using ORCID to populate data in ScienCV for NIH and NSF biosketches.

Other Resources

Provide guidance and support related to various collaboration resources offered by the Office of Research Development, including the Pivot funding database and the Collaborative Collision program.
