Since 2007, the Elsevier Foundation has worked to build research infrastructure and capacity through annual grants to libraries in developing countries. Projects have tackled everything from preserving unique legacies through digitization, supporting the creation of online national repositories, medical library needs assessments, librarian-led outreach to rural clinics to establishing an African center for evidence based health care. Our goal has been to fund unique ideas to enable expansion and further fundraising. This presentation will offer a brief look into some of the most impactful projects and how they support librarians in their pivotal roles as research ambassadors in developing countries.
