The NN/LM SCR is happy to announce the following four funding opportunities:

Digital Preservation and Access Award
The purpose of the Digital Preservation and Access (DiPA) Award is to increase accessibility to historically significant and unique items in the South Central Region by providing funding for Network members to digitize portions of their collections. These digital collections will be made freely available online. In additional to digitization of materials, projects may include such activities as cataloging, indexing, archival use of rich text media and the creation of metadata.
Amount of funding: $25,000

Electronic Consumer Health Outreach Award
The goal of this award is to ensure that health professionals, their patients and the general public are connected to the health information resources they need to make informed health care decisions. This solicitation will focus on projects designed to improve access to electronic health information for such groups and organizations as consumers, the underserved and minority health care professionals, public health workers, public libraries, and community-based and faith-based organizations.
Amount of funding: $25,000

Outreach to Healthcare Providers Award
The purpose of this funding is to ensure improved access to health information and information technology for those health providers without adequate access to library and information services. This solicitation will focus on projects designed to improve access to electronic health information for such groups and organizations as: unaffiliated healthcare providers located in rural, inner city, and Medically Underserved Areas (MUA), public health workers, minority health practitioners, and those who serve minority populations. Subcontracts will be awarded competitively to NN/LM SCR member institutions which assess the information needs, and plan and propose an appropriate outreach program to meet the needs of these healthcare providers.
Amount of funding: $25,000

Library Student Outreach Award
The purpose of this award is to promote the value of outreach to library school students interested in health sciences librarianship. The award provides funding for students to attend the South Central Chapter of the Medical Library Association (SCC/MLA) Annual Meeting in Baton Rouge, LA, October 15 – 17, 2011 and participate in meetings, conference sessions and other activities designed for them to learn about the importance of health information outreach and services conducted by librarians in the South Central Region.
Amount of funding: up to $1,400 per student
