Sample letter - Congratulations on Grant

Dear NAME:

In reviewing a recent issue of DRDA Reporter, I noted with interest that you have been awarded a grant to study [GRANT AWARD TOPIC]. This is an area of collecting responsibility for the [LIBRARY NAME] Library and we will do everything possible to facilitate your research efforts. Please contact me should you identify specific information resources needed in your work or if you wish to discuss collecting areas that you feel should be strengthened at the [LIBRARY NAME] Library. We are committed to building collections that support current research interests and will make every effort to accomodate your requests.

Apart from issues related to the collections, I'd like to call your attention to several services offered by the library that you might find useful as your work proceeds. Database search services are available for identifying relevant background literature or providing current awareness updates. We can also provide reference assistance for specific as well as ongoing and in-depth information needs. Finally, you might wish to call upon us to orient project staff to the Library or to provide demonstrations of MIRLYN and other library research tools.

Again, I congratulate you on this award and would welcome the opportunity to discuss how the Library can best be of assistance. I can be reached by email at [EMAIL ADDRESS], phone ([PHONE #]), or in person at my office in [OFFICE ADDRESS].
