The Elsevier Foundation has announced a call for grant proposals under its “Innovative Libraries in Developing Countries” program. The Foundation will provide grants to libraries in the developing countries and their supporting organizations for programs to enhance libraries’ capacity in the fields of science, technology and medicine -- through library training and education; library infrastructure, technology or information services; and digitization and preservation of information. The Foundation especially encourages proposals that support partnerships between libraries in the developing countries and institutions in the developed countries.
Proposals must be submitted by Oct 1, 2007, and will be awarded at the end of the 2007 calendar year.
