The GMR Outreach Award allows the Outreach Librarian of the Ruth Lilly Medical Library to attend multiple events as an exhibitor, pays for a small portion of The Outreach Librarian's salary, and pays for minimal related administrative costs. Events are hosted by Outreach Librarian and other volunteers from the Ruth Lilly Medical Library. A booth and table are rented. Space is hosted with friendly faces, a MacBook Air & Wifi for live demonstrations of NLM databases, handouts and customized posters. Classes are taught by the Outreach Librarian and other volunteers. Classes are generally hosted in the medical library computer classrooms, and sometimes on other parts of campus or within the community. Details of each event or class are attached.
