Our Mission

The Office of Academic Research and Grants (OARG) exists to help serve faculty and graduate students in facilitating their academic research interests with both guidance and administrative support throughout all stages of grant development to management.

Library Grant Resources

This research guide curates resources, especially for faculty research grants. The Biola Library helps faculty before, during, and after their research projects. Special databases enable faculty to discover funding sources as well as publications in their subject area. The Biola Digital Commons expands the impact of scholarly materials through archiving material outside of a paywall as allowed by most journal publishers’ Green Open Access policies. The Scholarly Communications Librarian is available to assist faculty in using these tools throughout the entire research lifecycle.
