- The GMR will continually strive to improve communications within the NNLM and NLM, and with network members and the community through a variety of communication modes, with the intent to enhance knowledge and understanding of the network’s programs and services and to ensure transparency with our peers, network members, and the community during the five years of the grant.
- The GMR staff will expand and manage the GMR network to enhance services to health care professionals, librarians, and community organizations throughout the five years of the award so that the NNLM mission continues to be met through a distributed network.

- The GMR staff will provide a Data Management Education Center (DMEC) for network members to increase the number of network libraries skilled at supporting health researchers with data management throughout the data life cycle during the five years of the award.
- The GMR staff will develop and implement outreach and education programs that reach health professionals in the Region with a focus on underserved health communities and health professionals that work in these medically challenging communities so that easy access to NLM resources can be obtained regardless of location or economic status, throughout the five years of the award.
- The GMR staff will ensure that all GMR network members have the opportunity to keep current on health sciences information topics and resources such as PubMed so that health professionals receive quality support from GMR Network libraries throughout the five years of the grant.
- The GMR staff will increase the number of public health professionals who have new skills in accessing and searching quality health information through online educational opportunities throughout the five years of the grant so that they can easily and effectively access quality information at time of need.
