Thought About The Great Offer from Your RML?

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

Librarians have a role in improving health literacy.  Your RML would like to support you in that role. So have you thought about applying for a copy of Health Literacy Advisor? This is a software program that enhances Microsoft Word to help edit health materials for different reading levels. The NN/LM MidContinental Region is making a copy available to 90 Network members (full and affiliate). That means 1/3 of our members can get a copy! For more information and to get to the application form, go to the MCR’s award page http://nnlm.gov/mcr/funding/index.html. Deadline is coming up fast; it’s April 5.  /ch
