Faculty Research & Teaching

The Newberry program offers opportunities to faculty at member institutions of the ACM and the Great Lakes Colleges Association (GLCA).

Teaching the Newberry Seminar

Each fall, the seminar is led a pair of instructors from the ACM and GLCA colleges. This is an opportunity to lead advanced students in discussion and research at a world-class library. Past seminar faculty have seen this as the best teaching experience of their careers. Seminar leaders can also do their own research in the library's collections. For additional information, contact ACM Vice President and Director of Off-Campus Study Programs Joan Gillespie (312.263.5000).

Research at the Newberry

Modest travel grants that can be applied to your lodging are available from the ACM, if you are interested in conducting short-term research at the Newberry to prepare a proposal to lead the Newberry Seminar or to plan for a research sabbatical. See the Faculty Travel Grants webpage for information about applying for a grant.
