FROG (Funding Research Opportunities Grant) Committee

About

Since 1997 TS-SIS has joined with LSRD-SIS to provide funding for grants for law librarians to perform research on topics that will enhance technical services law librarianship. The FROG Committee is comprised of six members: the chair, a representative-at-large, two representatives from TS-SIS, and two representatives from LSRD-SIS. Each representative serves for two years. The committee name was changed in 2015 from LSRD-SIS/TS-SIS Joint Research Grant Committee to FROG (Funding Research Opportunities Grant) Committee.

See the TS-SIS Handbook for more information about the committee.

See the LSRD-SIS website for more information about the Grant.
