ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Librarians without Borders®  E-library Training Initiative improves access to critically important health information, while the MLA Disaster Relief Fund assists medical libraries impacted by natural and man-made disasters throughout the world.

Apply for the Cunningham Memorial International Fellowship, for health sciences librarians from countries outside the United States and Canada.

Apply for the Librarians Without Borders® Ursula Poland International Scholarship, for assistance in funding projects related to health sciences librarianship in an international context.
