Six grants have been awarded under the Elsevier Foundation’s 2007/2008 programme for Innovative Libraries in Developing Countries. The grants are to help libraries build their capacity to use scientific, technical and medical information to promote health and economic advancement in the developing world.

This year’s 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.
