The GMR is pleased to announce that the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) Library of the Health Sciences (LHS) is once again active in our Network outreach. UIC becomes the second Partner Outreach Library (POL) in Illinois, joining Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in Springfield. Congratulations, UIC LHS!
UIC librarians, as do our other Partner Outreach Librarians, will help the GMR identify potential outreach opportunities in the state; train consumers, public librarians, unaffiliated health care providers, and other Illinoisans in health information access; exhibit and promote NLM and NIH resources, as well as those of NNLM and UIC.
Carmen Howard, UIC LHS-Peoria, is the designated POL for UIC LHS. However, since UIC has libraries in Chicago, Rockford, Urbana, as well as Peoria, other librarians will also assist in outreach.
You can meet up with our latest POL librarians at the 2018 Illinois Library Association Annual Conference, Peoria Civic Center, Peoria, IL, October 9-11, 2018.
