The Professional Development Award is intended to enable individuals to expand their professional knowledge and experience to better manage their libraries and to provide improved health information access to health care professionals and consumers. Money is available to fund three awards for up to $1000 each. Eligibility is targeted to individuals working in Primary Access Libraries that are "Full" network members.

We also offer Professional Instruction Awards for up to $1500 to Full members. The purpose of this award is to support a network member in the sponsorship of a workshop, technology fair or forum, or other professional educational activity that will assist network members in developing their skills and knowledge, and enhance their abilities as participants in the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM).
