New Face at the Grants Information Collection

If it's been a while since you last visited the Grants Information Collection (GIC) - virtually or physically - you may be surprised to find that there have been a few changes taking place as of late!

Here's a recap for those of you who've been away:

  • Long-time Grants Librarian, Elizabeth Breed, has retired and handed the collection reins over to Nikki Busch (seen above right). "Saint Liz" as she is known by some, is rumored to be enjoying her retirement and is (if possible) more active in artistic and equestrian endeavors than ever. Nikki promises to carry on in the tradition of excellence in service and education that Liz has pioneered at the GIC. Do feel free to contact her with your questions and comments at .

  • The physical collection, located on the 2nd floor of Memorial Library at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, has moved to a new space adjacent to its old location in reference You can now find both print and online materials in Room 262 D/E (directly behind the reference desk).

  • Last, but certainly not least, is the web site's ( new look and feel. In response to an online user survey conducted during the month of February, the GIC web site now uses an easier to read font,and a less text-intensive writing style. Navigational links appear throughout the site along the top of the screen. And, more is on the way!
