Description of the Award

The National Network of Libraries of Medicine, MidContinental Region (NNLM MCR), under a cooperative agreement grant with the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), announces the availability of funding through its Immersive Workshop funding  in support of the NNLM mission.
The Immersive Workshop funding seeks to support multi-day professional development events that train participants to improve health information access. The event must be interprofessional and include librarians as one of the professions. The workshop activities should achieve the following:
  1. Increase the awareness of how different professionals can contribute to addressing a health information access challenge.
  2. Increase knowledge and skills in a significant area of health information access.
  3. Enable workshop participants to immediately implement the content of the workshop
  4. Enable workshop participants to be change agents within their institution.
Award recipients will have up to two years to plan and host this event. The event must be held by April 30, 2019.

This funding specifically meets the Aim of the 2016-2021 cooperative agreement with NLM--Implement a process for announcing, reviewing, and making sub-awards to regional Network members to help achieve outreach, education, and technology goals.

The NNLM MCR will support workshops with up to $14,000. The amount and number of awards will be based on upcoming funding.
