Cooperative Agreement Funding Opportunities for Regional Medical Libraries Open until July 24, 2015

Monday, April 6th, 2015

We are pleased to announce that the Regional Medical Libraries (RML) and supporting offices cooperative agreement funding opportunities are open for applications until July 24, 2015: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-LM-15-003.html

The RMLs are the backbone of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM). The overarching goal of the NN/LM is to advance the progress of medicine and improve public health by providing U.S. health professionals with equal access to biomedical information and improving individuals’ access to information to enable them to make informed decisions about their health. Eight health sciences libraries will function as the RML for their respective Region. The RMLs will coordinate the operation of a Network of Libraries and other organizations to carry out regional and national programs. The RMLs will ensure a continuity of quality service for core programs of the NN/LM, and cooperatively design, implement, and evaluate innovative approaches to serve the health information needs of health professionals and the public in the future.
