NNLM PSR Funding Guide

Activity Reports

Activity reports must be submitted via the National Network of Library of Medicine's online reporting portal, known as the Data Reporting System or DRS. 

  • These activities are typically scheduled in advance and directed toward an audience outside of the awardee's institution
  • Activities may 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 that should be reported are:
    • Holding a class on an NLM resource for members of the public
    • Presenting 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
    • Exhibits where you answer questions, distribute educational materials, and provide impromptu training to attendees at conferences, health fairs, or other events 
  • NNLM Subawardees can use the video tutorials and templates on this page to plan answers ahead of submission and to learn about the NNLM Data Reporting System (DRS), including how to locate their Project, add reports, and upload participant data to their subaward activities
  • If you are unsure about whether your activity should be reported, please contact the NNLM PSR office.

 

Final Report 

A Final Project Report must be completed no later than 30 days after the end of the period of performance.

  • Final Reports must be submitted via the National Network of Library of Medicine's online reporting portal, known as the Data Reporting System or DRS. Unique login information for the DRS will be supplied to subawardees. NNLM Subawardees can use the video tutorials and templates on this page to plan answers ahead of submission and to learn about the NNLM Data Reporting System (DRS), including how to locate their Project, add reports, and upload participant data to their subaward activities. Answer in a narrative paragraph format; feel free to add additional information and skip questions not applicable to your project
  • 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.
  • Please contact the PSR office with any questions.
