Regional Medical Libraries for the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (UG4) (RFA-LM-15-003)



This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites cooperative agreement (UG4) applications for Regional Medical Libraries (RMLs) as an integral component of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM). The goal of the NN/LM is to advance the progress of medicine and improve public health by providing U.S. health professionals with equal access to biomedical information and improving individual's access to information to enable them to make informed decisions about their health. Eight Health Sciences Libraries will function as the RML for their respective region. The RMLs will coordinate the operation of a Network of Libraries and other organizations to carry out regional and national programs. The RMLs will ensure a continuity of quality service for core programs of the NN/LM, and cooperatively design, implement and evaluate innovative approaches to serve the health information needs of health professionals and the public in the future.

Additional information about the NN/LM and the existing RML networks can be found at the NN/LM website.
Current operational procedures, evaluation methods, and reporting plans of the NN/LM and the RMLs are found in the NN/LM Organizational Workbook.
