Can you include books and/or professional society memberships in expenses under grants from agencies like NSF and NIH?
I've purchased lots of books under grants from DOE and the Air Force in the past, but I'm wondering if they're generally considered allowable. My quick searching uncovered the following:
- NIH seems to explicitly allow books at least
- NSF: I'm guessing books are allowed under "materials and supplies"
I haven't found anything about allowability of professional society memberships.
