There are two categories of funding:

Express Outreach Awards

  • Express Outreach is the broad category of awards for projects involving community outreach, professional development, and instructional design.
  • Library Services to Health Agencies Awards supports outreach to health related organizations based on the unit cost of services (document delivery, reference consultations, and training sessions) to be provided.
  • Member Program Awards is for development of a training program directed at health information professionals or healthcare providers in areas related to health information access.
  • Community Preparedness is for collaborative planning or promotion of community resources for emergency preparedness.
  • Community Engagement Awards support short-term outreach projects that involve advancing health information resources in collaboration with local community groups. These projects are smaller than extensive outreach subcontracts.
  • Exhibits Awards are for members’ participation at venues that promote health information resources. Funds support registration and fees, travel, and related expenses. Members can promote their local library resources while promoting the National Library of Medicine.
  • Health Information Research Awards supports the development and implementation of a      project investigating outcomes related to health information      interventions.
  • Library Digitization Awards enable libraries to increase accessibility within and without the institution of local collections that are not currently available for use.
  • Technology Improvement Awards is for supporting equipment purchases to broaden electronic access to health information.

Knowledge Management Projects

The primary purpose of the Knowledge Management Project funding is to stimulate innovations in biomedical knowledge management and information services at the health care institution or health system level. The intent of funding is to assist network members in the establishment of Healthcare Knowledge Service Centers within their healthcare institutions.
