I am often asked by our members how they can keep track of all the updates and newly developed NLM Resources. After trainings participants often remark, “I didn’t know that or how did I miss that?”

The MAR staff uses MAR-L as a mechanism to communicate news about the National Library of Medicine’s (NLM) products and services such as PubMed, MedlinePlus, DOCLINE, ClinicalTrials.gov, etc., and to announce funding opportunities from both the MAR office and NLM. To subscribe to MAR-L listserv and receive our weekly posting you can visit https://list.pitt.edu/mailman/listinfo/mar-l.

Another way to stay on top of NLM offerings is to subscribe to specific announcement and discussion lists hosted by the National Library of Medicine.


Users will receive list postings, access list archives, and can post messages to a list. NLM also offers RSS feeds, podcasts, and webcasts.

Using the list below you will be able to find a NLM email list to meet your interests and needs.


Weekly announcement-only list of new and updated files on the NLM Web site, HSTAT, MedlinePlus, and NLM Technical Bulletin.

MedlinePlus offers a free subscription service that allows you to receive alerts by e-mail when new information is available. You can subscribe to all MedlinePlus health topics in English and Spanish, as well as a variety of other health-related news and announcement e-mail lists.

Outreach to Specific Populations (OSP)

The Outreach to Specific Populations (OSP) listserv provides health information professionals, librarians, advocates, health care professionals, students, and others with an opportunity to share information and discuss outreach to specific populations through quality information, capacity building and community engagement. This discussion forum will enable participants to stay informed about health information resources, services, and programs tailored to specific populations as well as connect with colleagues in the field and benefit from discussions that address best practices, challenges, and gaps associated with health information outreach to specific populations.
