The next round of grants for innovative libraries in developing
countries from the Elsevier Foundation is now open to support the efforts
of libraries to enhance the quality of life in developing countries by
advancing knowledge in science, the social sciences technology and medicine.
The Foundation provides one, two and three year grants to libraries in the
developing countries and supporting organizations:

       * Programs to enhance library infrastructure, technology or
information services in ways that significantly expand their ability to
make STM (scientific/social sciences, technical and medical) information
available to those who need it — researchers, clinicians, students,
policymakers and the wider public.

       * Programs that expand library information resources in the
developing world through digitization or preservation of information that
advances science, health, the environment, and indigenous knowledge.

        * Training and education programs for library staff, students or
researchers, contributing to sustainable improvements in the library’s
capacity to provide STM information in the developing world.

       * Partnerships between libraries in the developing countries and
institutions in the developed countries to provide technical assistance
or training. Developed country partner organizations include libraries,
learned societies, universities, intergovernmental organizations and other
non-profit organizations.

Please note that in 2012 a new two step application process has been
implemented to streamline the submission and review process. First round
applications will be accepted through June 24th through the Foundation’s
online application system. In early July shortlisted candidates will be
announced and invited to submit a full proposal in the second round. Grant
recipients will be announced in December 2012.

Deadline: 24 June 2012
