You Asked For It! A New Funding Opportunity for Medical Librarians

Posted by on December 14th, 2007 Posted in: Funding, News From NNLM PNR

Show your administrators how your library and your librarian skills benefit the hospital! How do you contribute to quality care, patient safety, and the all-important “bottom line”? The NNLM PNR is now accepting applications for a new award, specially designed to assist medical librarians in demonstrating their value and impact.

Rather than “outreach,” these Medical Library Impact Awards might be considered “inreach” since they address health information problems and priorities within member institutions. Award funds (maximum of $5,000) might be used to support a study of the contribution of library services to the IRS-mandated community benefit standard, to showcase the librarian as leader of an interdepartmental team working on electronic medical records and linking knowledge-based resources, to develop and evaluate an institution-wide marketing campaign, or other projects unique to your institution and community. The librarian must be the project leader and support from administration must be documented.

Applications are due February 15, 2008. Read the full announcement and link to the application form at http://nnlm.gov/pnr/funding/Impact_2008.html. Contact Cathy Burroughs (nnlm@u.washington.edu) or Linda Milgrom (lmilgrom@u.washington.edu) if you have any questions.
