Bookshelf Guidelines, Submitted Applications, and Final Reports
Bookshelf project directors may log in to the online application at any time to view a copy of a submitted application. If you have forgotten your password, you may use the password reset option.
Project directors may also wish to consult the NEH application guidelines during the grant term.
All project directors are required to submit a final report covering project activities. Project directors may preview the final report as a PDF, or log in to begin working on the report prior to the January 31, 2014, deadline. Please note that if you applied for the Bookshelf collection on behalf of multiple libraries, only one final report is required, covering activities conducted across the participating branches.
