The Kansas City Public Library

User Guides

KCResearch User Guides offer advice to specific sets of KCResearch users that may not necessarily be research about Kansas City, but will help build stronger communities.

There are currently three user guides: Tips for Grant Seekers, Tips for New Entrepreneurs, and Tips for Educators. The first provides thorough information about what you need to know if you have a project or research idea that needs funding to go through and includes a list of local and regional grants that may be of interest. The guide for new entrepreneurs offers steps to making a business plan and getting funding to make your business dreams a reality. The last guide, though still in development, will provide resources for teachers of varying levels about how KCResearch and similar types of resources can be integrated into the classroom.

If you have an idea for a guide that would be helpful to groups of people visiting KCResearch, please contact us via e-mail KCResearch@kclibrary.org and propose it!
