NNLM Online Applications System

NNLM's online applications system allows users to submit proposals for funding directly via the NNLM website. Please refer to the specific application instructions on each Request for Proposal (RFP) for detailed requirements. After you have confirmed that your Regional Medical Library (RML) is using this method to accept proposals, review the system requirements below and watch our brief video tutorial to learn how to submit your application.


System Requirements

Before attempting to submit your application for funding in the NNLM online application system:

  1. Confirm that your institution is a NNLM Member with a NNLM Member record.
  2. Confirm that you (the applicant) have an NNLM account.
    • You must be logged in to your NNLM account to successfully submit an application.
    • If you are submitting an application on behalf of the Project Lead, the Project Lead must also have an NNLM account prior to submission.
  3. Confirm that your NNLM account is connected to the NNLM Member record for your institution.
    • To connect, fill in the “Organization” field on your NNLM account using the autocomplete function. When correctly filled, you will see the 5-digit NNLM ID in parenthesis beside the institution name. Watch a brief tutorial for assistance with completing this process.
    • If you are submitting an application on behalf of the Project Lead, the Project Lead must also be connected to the NNLM Member record for your institution prior to submission.

Please note: you cannot successfully submit an application without these components. If you have questions about these or any other system requirements, please contact your Regional Medical Library in advance of the application deadline.
