Project Reporting

Final Reports

Narrative project reports must be submitted to the GMR office no later than 30 days of the end of the period of performance.

  • Please complete the Final Project Report template. Answer in a narrative paragraph format; feel free to add additional information and skip questions not applicable to your project. Please contact the GMR Office with any questions.
  • Please note that parts of these reports may be made public, and so should be edited carefully for spelling and grammatical errors.
  • Reports may be started at any time after the project has begun. We recommend starting early and writing the report as the project progresses.

Activity Reports

Activity reports must be submitted via the online activity report form.

  • These activities are typically scheduled in advance and directed toward an audience outside of the awardee's institution
  • Activities might be in person, virtual, or a combination of both
  • Awardees should make an effort to collect demographic information for all participants
  • Some examples of activities you should report:
    • Holding a class on an NLM resource for members of the public
    • Presenting on your outreach program at a professional conference
    • Visiting a potential community partner to assess their health information needs
    • Conducting focus groups to determine how best to serve the larger community
  • This list is not exhaustive. If you are unsure about whether your activity should be reported, please contact Jacqueline Leskovec.

Participant Information Data

Participant information data must be collected for project activities, this information is shared with the National Library of Medicine to determine the reach of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine.

Completed Participant Information Sheets can be scanned and sent to the GMR office or uploaded directly in the online Activity Reporting form. 

Exhibit Reports

An exhibit is an event where you answer questions, distribute educational materials, and provide impromptu training to attendees. Exhibits often take place at conferences and health fairs, but they are not limited to those events.
All exhibit information should be collected on the Exhibit Data Collection Form (sometimes referred to as a "tally sheet") and emailed directly to the GMR office.

  • The following types of exhibits must be reported:
    • Borrowed Exhibits: banners and pop-up backdrops that the GMR lends to members without supplying additional funds
    • Exhibits conducted as part of a larger funded project (e.g., Outreach Library, Outreach Express, etc.)
  • Reports
