The purpose of this program is to support projects that promote health awareness and literacy using outreach efforts. Funds will be given to projects that promote health information services by collaborating with a public relations firm to produce promotional posters, displays, brochures, fliers, bookmarks, and similar promotional items. Projects may utilize social media to increase public awareness of health information services or resources. In addition, projects may facilitate a special event that encourages the use of new or unique services such as scholarly research support, evidence-based practice, and health information literacy.
Projects that develop a website must comply with Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act. Refer to the Section508 file for further information.
Award recipients must acknowledge support of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine when publicizing project-related activities.
Eligible costs may include personal appeal items, such as cameras, MP3 players, smart phones, and laptop computers.
