The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has published a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) seeking cooperative agreement (UG4) applications for Regional Medical Libraries (RMLs) as the central component of the renamed Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM). The mission of the NNLM is to advance the progress of medicine and improve the public’s health by providing U.S. researchers, health professionals, public health workforce, educators, and the public with equal access to biomedical and health information resources and data. The RMLs carry out regional and national programs in support of the mission. The FOA also solicits proposals for RMLs to host one or more of the NNLM Offices, which are functional units that serve the entire NNLM program.
The full description of the funding opportunity, award and eligibility information, application submission instructions, and other details are available on the Funding Opportunity Announcement webpage: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-LM-20-001.html.
