Forwarded by Ruth Holst of GMR/NN/LM:
I’m writing to provide you with a reminder that continues to issue new grant solicitations that could be the basis of fruitful collaborations between libraries and researchers or community-based organizations interested in biomedical research. While these grant programs are seldom aimed specifically at libraries, they offer opportunities for collaboration with research groups and for new partnerships within your community that could bring new funds and new activities to you. For example, NIH funding opportunity announcements will be coming in the next few months for grants to support building infrastructure for community research and to promote research on behavioral and social aspects of health and illness. If you have not already registered for delivery of the weekly NIH Guide to Grants and Contracts that is sent by email each Friday, you sign up at _http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/listserv.htm_. Also, new funding opportunities that will be published in the NIH Guide are posted on the Guide website as soon as they are ready, in the New Announcements this Week section at _http://grants1.nih.gov/grants/guide/WeeklyIndex.cfm_. This can give you a head start of a few days on the Friday mailing.
