Funding for Informationist on NIH Grant

NLM’s new funding announcement offering support for informationists to work on NIH-funded research grants is on the NIH Guide site as of today; http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-12-158.html. These supplements provide funds to researchers who have existing research grants from any of the Institutes listed (NLM, ¬†NCI, NEI, NIA, NIAAA, NIBIB, NIDCD, NIDCR), to pay for adding an informationist to the project. The principal investigator of the grant must apply for this, so librarian/informationist¬† might want to identify partners of interest and reach out to them to suggest that they apply, or alert people with whom they already work. An easy way to find potential partners would be to use the NIH reporter http://projectreporter.nih.gov/reporter.cfm to search by state and funding Agency. Funding amount and period is $25,000/year for 2 years. Deadline for application is June 5, 2012. /ch
