Hello everyone,

I wanted to make sure you had a chance to see the following funding opportunity:

The Network of the National Library of Medicine Region 5 (NNLM Region 5), under cooperative agreement with the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), is pleased to announce the release of its Collection Equity Outreach funding opportunity.

The funding opportunity is designed to support the Network of the National Library of Medicine's mission to advance the progress of medicine and improve the public health by:

  *   Providing U.S. researchers, health professionals, public health workforce, educators, and the public with equal access to biomedical and health information resources and data.

NNLM Region 5's Collection Equity Outreach Awards are designed to help build collections that are reflective of voices of the communities served which may be revealed through different genres such as graphic medicine, fiction, nonfiction, memoirs, Young Adult, manuscripts (published and unpublished), oral histories and film. Expanding diverse voices in libraries (all types), public health agencies, academic programs, or community organizations ensure collection equity and supports health literacy by illuminating health issues either common, or conversely, unique to underserved populations in the region.
A minimum of fifteen awards of $1,500 each will be funded. Applications submitted by 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time, August 19, 2021 will receive first consideration. To see the full Collection Equity Outreach Award, including the eligibility criteria, funding period,  application instructions, and to download the application, please see this NNLM Region 5 Blog post. <https://news.nnlm.gov/region_5/nnlm-region-5-collection-equity-outreach-award>
