Proposals for Innovative Libraries in Developing Countries Program 2010

The Elsevier Foundation is seeking new grant proposals for the 2010 Innovative Libraries in Developing Countries program. Sponsored by Elsevier, a leading global publisher of scientific, technical and medical information, the Innovative Libraries program provides grants to library programs in the developing world for innovative systems and services that improve access to scientific, technical and medical information. The deadline for Innovative Libraries proposals is September 15th 2010. Grants will be awarded in December 2010 and provide one, two and three year awards between US$5,000 to US$50,000 per year.

The Innovative Libraries in Developing Countries program supports the efforts of libraries in developing countries to improve their ability to put scientific, technical and medical information to work for those who need it. Past projects have included: expanding library information resources through digitization and knowledge preservation; training and education programs for librarians and researchers; developed-developing world partnerships to provide longer term technical assistance and training.

“Last year, the number of applications to the Innovative Libraries program rose by more than half–a clear indication of the need for this type of information development,” said David Ruth, Executive Director of the Elsevier Foundation, “We believe strongly in the critical importance of funding proposals that demonstrate the use of information to address diverse issues of development, including environment, clinical care, emergency management and research skills.”

Active since 2002, the Elsevier Foundation provides grants to institutions around the world, with a focus on supporting the world’s libraries and scholars in the early stages of their careers. Since its inception, the Foundation has awarded more than 60 grants worth millions of dollars to non-profit organizations working in these fields. In January 2010, $600,000 in grants were awarded to 12 organizations selected for their innovation and potential for impact in the developing world and academic workplace.

More information on the program requirements and details of how to submit a 2010 proposal are available on The Elsevier Foundation website.

The online Elsevier Foundation application program will accept proposals from August 1st through September 15th.
