Information about the new MLA HINARI/Research4Life Grant which is being publicised now in anticipation of Mosaic '16, the joint meeting of MLA, CHLA/ABSC and the International Clinical Librarian Conference.
MLA Librarians Without Borders and the Awards Jury are looking forward to receiving many viable proposals - MLA membership is not a requirement for proposal submission.
For those interested in submitting grants during the next 3 years, who have not previously been involved in HINARI training activities and who will be attending Mosaic '16 in Toronto, we suggest registering for CE305 Librarians without Borders®: HINARI and Internet-Based Information Resources for Health Professionals in Low and Emerging Income Countries.
This course is geared toward individuals from institutions in developed countries with linkages to organizations in HINARI eligible countries or individuals from such nations.
The objective of the course is for the participants to obtain practical skills for locating, accessing and evaluating HINARI and other Internet-based health information for use in the low/emerging income countries’ environment.
Please note that the registrations fee is modest ($50 USD) and will include a boxed lunch supplied by the Elsevier Foundation.
