The librarians at Regions Hospital Medical Library are currently working on a project that brings medical information and a librarian presence to healthcare conferences in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. The conferences are offered by HealthPartners Institute for Medical Education
Thanks to a GMR technology award, the librarians have purchased a laptop and monitor to display resources from the National Library of Medicine, such as PubMed and MedlinePlus, and for HealthPartners employees, the subscription resources available to them through the library’s Intranet site. Conference attendees are primarily from Minnesota and surrounding states. Another goal of our project is to increase awareness of medical libraries in general among all conference participants.
The librarians have attended three conferences so far and answered questions regarding consumer health and accessing subscription online resources. Building on the early success of this project, the librarians plan to continue attending IME conferences beyond 2011.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Utilities Service (RUS) has announced it is accepting applications for grants to provide broadband access in rural communities currently without broadband service. Making broadband service available to rural communities can help make a tremendous difference in the quality of life for citizens. Funding is provided through the Community Connect Grant program. Grants are available to communities in the most rural, economically challenged areas where loans would not be sustainable. Funds may be used to construct, acquire or lease facilities to deploy broadband to residents, businesses and essential community facilities such as police and fire stations, libraries, schools, and health care clinics.
Applications for the 2011 Fiscal Year are currently being accepted. All applications must be submitted to RUS by May 3, 2011.
