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:


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different genres such as graphic medicine, fiction, nonfiction, memoirs, Young Adult, manuscripts (published and unpublished), oral histories and film.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 ensures collection equity and supports health literacy by illuminating health issues either common, or conversely, unique to under-served populations in NNLM Region 5, including Alaska, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and the U.S. Territories and Freely Associated States in the Pacific.
