The National Library of Medicine (NLM) and the Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) as part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are partnering to increase the awareness and access to sex and gender differences research resources available from NIH and their 27 Institutes and Centers through the Women’s Health Resources Portal (http://whr.nlm.nih.gov) through a funding opportunity. The purpose of the Women’s Health Resources Dissemination Project is to design programs for creating and improving access to and use of sex and gender differences information for university and college students, faculty, librarians and health professionals. Emphasis is on providing information or access to health and medical information that is relevant and usable by the intended audience, and increasing the awareness and utilization of high-quality, professional-level online medical and public health information resource on sex and gender difference basic science, sex-specific studies, disparities, and inclusion research, including the NLM Women’s Health Resources Portal (http://whr.nlm.nih.gov) that serves as an access point to all NIH sex and gender differences resources. The purpose is also to promote new and creative collaborations between university / college and their library, specifically medical and Health libraries, to students and faculty to increase the knowledge and awareness of sex and gender differences in research design and reporting. University and colleges libraries may also increase information access to existing partnerships with outside organizations that are primarily focused on health and medical research.
