Outreach Projects Funded 1994 to 1999

Overview

Each year from 1994 through 1999 NLM has announced recipients of purchase orders of up to $25,000 each to community-based organizations and libraries (public and health sciences). These awards enable the recipients to develop local programs for improving access to HIV/AIDS-related information. This program resulted from recommendations made at the NIH HIV/AIDS Information Services Conference hosted by NLM in June 1993. Many of these projects involve the efforts of a number of organizations and libraries.

The awards are primarily intended to promote improved access to HIV/AIDS information to patients, the affected community and their care givers as well as the general public. Implementation of this goal may include providing access to electronic resources, training in the use of these resources, expanding collections, Internet connections, development of locally specific information materials, and opening access to collections and document delivery services.
