Grants now open to train library and information science professionals and users in developing countries on how to use Research4Life
The Medical Library Association (MLA) has establishing the HINARI/Research4Life (R4L) Activities Grant for 2016 to 2018. Funded by the Elsevier Foundation, up to five awards, per year, will support HINARI/R4L training activities that promote the use of the programs’ scientific research resources in emerging/low income countries. The grants will benefit the users in the eligible countries as these individuals will obtain skills to effectively and efficiently use the HINARI/R4L resources and also become a training resource for their institutions or country.
This grant is an expansion of the Elsevier Foundation funded Librarians Without Borders®/E-library Training Initiative that has conducted HINARI/R4L training activities and developed/updated training material since January 2007. The MLA objective is to develop a community of librarians that will continue to support HINARI/R4L training and related development of instructional material.
