Three projects totaling more than $1.3 million and featuring training and professional development resources for library, museum and archives professionals are now underway, thanks to funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) has announced grants and a cooperative agreement totaling $1.37 million for three projects featuring training and professional development resources that will benefit library, museum and archives professionals.

“I am proud that IMLS is supporting these projects that strengthen collections care, increase access to cultural heritage materials, and provide leadership training for museum, library and archive professionals,” Institute of Museum and Library Services Director Susan H. Hildreth said in a statement.

According to the Institute, the funding went to the following projects:

  • With a $275,000 National Leadership Grant for Museums, the Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (FAIC) in Washington, D.C., will operate a community of practice focused on providing information, training and support for those who care for collections in the United States. “Connecting to Collections Care,” or “C2C Care,” will be a free resource for library, museum and archives professionals offering discussion forums, 24 new collections care webinars, links to vital resources, and an archive of 50 past webinars and associated course materials developed by the C2C Online Community. The project will issue digital badges to those who complete a designated series of webinars and submit related assignments. To learn more, contact Dr. Eric Pourchot, Institutional Advancement Director, (202) 661-8061, epourchot@conservation-us.org.

  • Through a cooperative agreement and $698,605 of IMLS funding, Washington State University, Pullman, Wash., will increase the capacity of tribal archives, libraries and museums (TALMs) to digitize and preserve cultural heritage materials in culturally responsive ways. The “Tribal Stewardship Cohort Program: Digital Heritage Management, Archiving, and Mukurtu CMS Training,” is a three-year project that focuses on the unique needs of TALMs, using Mukurtu CMS as a core component of culturally sustainable digital heritage management, and incorporating both international archival and library standards and the ethical and cultural considerations of tribal archives, libraries, museums and the communities they serve throughout the nation. Learn more by contacting Kim Christen Withey, Ph.D., Associate Director, Digital Technology and Culture Program and Director of Digital Projects, Plateau Center, Native American Programs, Washington State University, (509) 335-4177, kachristen@wsu.edu.

  • With a $399,800 Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program grant, the Educopia Institute of Atlanta, Ga., in close collaboration with the Center for Creative Leadership and a wide range of leadership training stakeholders from the library, archives and museum communities, will collaboratively establish a national Nexus Leadership Lab for library, archives and museum (LAM) leadership training. The Leadership Lab will create a roadmap of leadership training opportunities, a core curriculum, and evaluation instruments, and establish and train a network of trainers. To learn more, contact Katherine Skinner, Ph.D., Executive Director, Educopia Institute, (404)783-2534, katherine.skinner@metaarchive.org.

The National Institutes of Health has announced the availability of $4.9 million in federal funding to support the FY2015 Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health Career Development Programs.

The National Institutes of Health’s (NIH’s) Office of Research on Women’s Health and its co-sponsors have released a funding opportunity announcement for the FY2015 Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health (BIRCWH) Career Development Programs.

The NIH announcement defined the programs as “mentored research career development of junior faculty members, known as BIRCWH Scholars, who have recently completed clinical training or postdoctoral fellowships, and who will engage in interdisciplinary basic, translational, behavioral, clinical, and/or health services research relevant to women’s health, and where appropriate the use of both sexes to better understand the influence of sex as a variable on health and disease.”

The goal of the initiative is to increase the number and skills of investigators through a mentored research and career development experience, NIH said, that leads to an independent scientific career that will benefit the health of women, advance research on sex/gender influences on health, and encourage interdisciplinary research methodology.

Eligible organizations include colleges and universities; nonprofit organizations, including faith- and community-based organizations; and Native American tribal governments and organizations.

NIH said it expects total funding of up to $4.9 million for up to 12 awards in FY2015. Applicants may request no more than $350,000 in direct costs, and the maximum project period is five years.

Letters of Intent must be received by Dec. 5, 2014. Full proposals are due Jan. 5, 2015. To learn more or to apply, go to www.grants.gov and search FON# RFA-OD-15-001.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has announced up to $139 million in funding to programs promoting integrated treatment and recovery services for mental and/or substance use disorders.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has announced up to $139 million in funding to programs promoting integrated treatment and recovery services for mental and/or substance use disorders. The agency said funding will support evidence-based programs that build upon a variety of community behavioral support systems to better address a wide range of issues vital to treatment and recovery.

“These programs take a holistic approach to treatment and recovery — recognizing that successful treatment and recovery efforts do not just depend on an individual, but on the whole community,” said SAMHSA Administrator Pamela S. Hyde in a statement. “Working together we can help people get the treatment they need to address mental and/or substance use disorders and reach their full potential.”

These integrated programs forge networks among an array of medical settings, treatment facilities and community services to ensure that people with mental and/or substance abuse disorders as well as other health conditions get the full range of services they need.

The grant programs include:

  • Primary and Behavioral Health Care Integration Program (PPHF-2012).
  • Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment Medical Professional Training Program (SBIRT Training).
  • Cooperative Agreements for Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment.
  • Minority AIDS Initiative Continuum of Care Pilot — Integration of HIV Prevention and Medical Care into Mental Health and Substance Abuse Treatment Programs for Racial/Ethnic Minority Populations at High Risk for Behavioral Health Disorders and HIV (MAI-CoC).

SAMHSA said actual award amounts may vary, depending on the availability of funds.
