This book gives administrators at non-research oriented colleges and universities practical advice on how to help their faculty undertake scholarly research with the limitations of their local resources. It argues that such research has three values: 1) the faculty continue to grow intellectually; 2) they become better teachers; and 3) research publications contribute to the university’s academic image.
