Short term library fellowships are quite likely the single most common kind of national research grant given out to scholars in the humanities. The Massachusetts Historical Society alone gives out twenty short- term library fellowships. Almost ev-ery major private university and scholarly library (including the Huntington, New-berry, Yale’s Beinecke, Harvard’s Houghton, and the New- York Historical Society), many public universities (such as the University of Texas, Austin), many major pub-lic libraries (such as the Boston Public Library and the New York Public Library), and many small specialized research libraries administrate these types of grants.
