SAMPLE Proposal

To:         Catherine Tierney

Subject: Proposal for Treat Fund grant

I request Payson J. Treat Funds to support a Unicorn processing web based training tool for instructing :

  • Project objective: To provide new employee Unicorn training support for Technical Services Units.
  • Brief description of the project: Using the TechPort model, design and publish an online, interactive, self-paced training tool for new employees. The training site would include instruction in the Unicorn production modules used in Acquisitions, Cataloging & Metadata processing (ordering, receiving, cataloging)
