NN/LM NER announces a new funding category. Outreach Awards for Library Services to Health Services and Public Health Agencies is designed to assist members in conducting limited or short-term outreach to health related agencies.
The Award funds outreach steps that are smaller in cost and scale than the Express Outreach Awards for Community Engagement. A Member Library would establish contact with one or several health related health care agencies and agree to provide health information services. Examples of services can be:
- document delivery
- mediated searching
- training on finding health information resources
Funding would allow the outreach to be reimbursed on a per unit basis. The health care agency receiving the services should not be affiliated with your home institution.
A brief proposal should include: information on the type of services to be provided; a description of the health related agency(ies); cost information, and other supporting documentation.
For more details on eligibility, restrictions, and necessary information, see the full award announcement.
