New York, 13 February 2008 The Elsevier Foundation has announced today that it has committed a total of $594,000 in grants to thirteen institutions from around the world in support of initiatives that promote the work of libraries and scholars in science, technology and medicine. The recipient programs were selected from over 150 applicants worldwide for their innovation and potential for impact in the developing world and the academic workplace.

Six grants have been awarded under the Elsevier Foundations program for Innovative Libraries in Developing Countries, which helps libraries build their capacity to use scientific, technical and medical information to promote health and economic advancement in the developing world. This years awardees include institutions working in Africa, Latin America and Asia to improve access to scientific information, develop information resources, and train librarians and researchers on how to use and deploy information for patient care, health research, HIV/AIDS, disaster preparedness, and agricultural development.
