The Medical Library Association (MLA) will create "RTI ONLINE: Deepening Research Capacity of Health Sciences Librarians," to build on, extend, and enhance the successful Research Training Institute (RTI) funded by a previous IMLS grant. This project will enable MLA to transition the existing RTI research curriculum and learning activities to online formats, test and refine the new online/hybrid model, reduce costs for participants, enhance the effectiveness and reach of the program to new audiences, and provide the capacity to develop an infrastructure that MLA will sustain after the grant period ends. The online Institute will leverage MLA's existing educational services, software, web and communication tools, scholarship and diversity programs, annual conference services, and strong organizational alliances to maximize broad impact and long-term sustainability.
