Joint Research Grant Committee
Since 1997 TS-SIS has joined with OBS-SIS to provide funding for grants for law librarians to perform research on topics that will enhance
technical services law librarianship. The Joint Research Grant Committee (JRGC) is comprised of six members: the chair, an ex officio member, two
representatives from TS-SIS, and two representatives from OBS-SIS. Each representative serves for two years.
