NLM Funding Opportunity: RML Cooperative Agreements for 2021-2026!

The National Library of Medicine has announced that the Regional Medical Libraries (RML) and supporting offices cooperative agreement funding opportunities for 2021-2026 are open for applications until September 11. You can read the announcement of the FOA here and review the FOA here.

You will see a couple of notable changes. One is that NNLM is being renamed Network of the National Library of Medicine, retaining the NNLM acronym.

The most significant news is the regions are being reconfigured and UCLA (NNLM PSR) will be competing for the first time since the regional medical libraries were established. The new region encompasses the Pacific Northwest and Pacific Southwest.

Region 5: Alaska, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and U.S. Territories and Freely Associated States in the Pacific

As you can see, Arizona will be moving to Region 4. We are extremely grateful that our colleagues in Arizona have done an outstanding job providing outreach to underrepresented populations, and we will miss their presence in the region.

All are welcome to attend a technical assistance webinar, which will be held on Wednesday July 8, 2020 from 12:00-1:00pm PST. The meeting will review the purpose and objectives of the FOA, review application instructions, and address questions from the community concerning the FOA. All prospective applicants are invited to participate. Submit questions in advance to NLMEPLM@mail.nlm.nih.gov. Following the meeting questions and answers will be posted at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/ep/RML.html. For more information, see https://nnlm.gov/workbook#tech.
