Faculty Resource Network

An academic partnership devoted to faculty development. Now in our fourth decade, we remain committed to this partnership, and to fostering connection, collaboration, and collegiality among our members.

Scholar Remote Fellowship Program

The Scholar Remote Fellowship affords Network faculty the opportunity to pursue research projects supported by the vast digital holdings of New York University’s Division of Libraries. Scholars accepted into the program will be granted electronic access for up to one year to over one million e-books and 166,000 e-journals in NYU’s online collections, connecting them to the scholarship of the world from their home or office. Scholars also receive access to additional online resources.

Selection for participation in the program is highly competitive. Applicants are required to submit applications detailing their intended scholarly activities to their institution’s Faculty Resource Network Liaison Officer. Liaison Officers then forward applications to the Network office for final selection.
