MOU for Promotion, Training and Collaboration OY3

Montana State University Libraries-Bozeman agrees to: 1. Promote NLM and NN/LM programs and services by providing full support for an exhibit, program presentation, or course offering (including scheduling, fees, shipping, logistics, equipment and publications) for at least one state library meeting. Coordination of course offerings, program presentations and exhibits should be in line with national initiatives and promotion activities identified by the RML. 2. Improve health information access in community colleges for librarians, students, faculty and staff. As recommended by the NN/LM Cross-Regional Community College Task Force, conduct training activities and promote access to NLM resources though outreach activities such as presentations, publication in newsletters or journals, use of social media, and exhibits. For this requirement, the community college libraries should be ones that do not already participate in the Tribal College Libraries Institute. 3. Assess and improve access to health information resources and library service by rural health providers that serve minority populations at risk for health disparities. Offer at least 1 onsite training, customized for local needs. 4. Promote NN/LM PNR and NLM products and services on appropriate pages of the Montana State University Libraries-Bozeman website. 5. Develop plans, including proposed outcomes, evaluation and budget, to sponsor an in-person and distance learning event that will occur during Option Year 3 (May 1, 2014 ? April 30, 2015). The event should be designed to inspire and promote ideas for network member collaboration in one or more of the following: school health, library and K-12 educator collaboration projects that address health disparities, health literacy, emergency preparedness, HIV/AIDS, culturally and linguistically appropriate information, or personal health records.
