Decisions about allocating funds to the OARS project are made by the Libraries’ management team
in consultation with the university’s Faculty Council Committee on Libraries (FCCOL). FCCOL has
been very involved in helping determine policies for distributing OARS funds and guidelines for
funding eligibility. The application approval process is managed by a liaison librarian, who creates
documentation about OARS policies and procedures, answers questions about the fund, and works
with an administrative professional to get applications approved. The administrative professional
screens applications to insure they are compliant with the guidelines, tracks how much money has
been allocated, and compiles fund statistics. Payments are managed by the Libraries’ Director of
Fiscal Services.
