Renae Barger, Executive Director

Many of you have been inquiring about funding opportunities for 2016-2017. In July, we submitted our application to continue as the Regional Medical Library for the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Middle Atlantic Region (NN/LM MAR) for the 2016-2021 grant cycle. Upon successful reapplication, we will proceed with announcing funding opportunities.

Funding supports outreach projects designed to improve health information services, increase awareness and access to biomedical information for health professionals and educate and empower health care consumers.  Outreach projects are directed at providing training, presentations, demonstrations, technology improvement and exhibits to targeted populations including health professionals, the public health workforce and special populations such as minorities, inner city and rural consumers, K-12 students, seniors, veterans, caregivers and others.

Throughout our current contract cycle, (2011-2016), NN/LM MAR member organizations have received funding for projects that have introduced National Library of Medicine resources to nearly 10,000 health professionals and consumers. Our proposed plan builds on these successes and funding opportunities to encourage partnerships between libraries and other organizations to reach underserved populations.

While you await our next funding announcement, it is not too soon to get prepared. Award types will be similar to those proposed in the past. NN/LM MAR staff has put together these planning resources to get you started and you may contact us at nnlmmar@pitt.edu to discuss your project ideas and request consultation.
