New NNLM Members Directory


NNLM User Accounts

Go to https://nnlm.gov/user/join or click on “Create new account” in the NNLM Login section at the bottom of every NNLM web page. To learn more about creating an account please click here.

Why create an NNLM User Account?

  1. You’ll need one to register for NNLM Classes and webinars.
  2. To edit your organization record.

If you have an NNLM Moodle account, you do not have to create a new account. Click on “Request new password” to update your account.

As part of the redesign of the NNLM web site, a new NNLM Members Directory has been implemented. The Members Directory provides basic information about each member institution. The directory can be searched using the “Filter Directory” box in the side-bar. Search options include: organization name, organization type, state, city, county. You can also filter by region. A regional subset of the Members Directory is also available: MidContinental Members Directory  The search options are the same for the National and regional directories, however the regional directory only includes members from the six states in the MCR.

One of the features of the new Members Directory is that each member organization can edit and update their organization information. To have access to edit the organization record, designated individuals need to create an NNLM User Account (See Box). Many members updated their organization records during the MCR member renewal drive in March. If your organization hasn’t updated your records yet, we encourage you do so. If you have questions or need assistance with the Members Directory or User Accounts, please contact Jim Honour or your state coordinator.

Look for monthly tips about the Members Directory and User Accounts in the RML News. We encourage you to contact use with any questions or concerns.

Important Points to Remember with the NNLM Members Directory

  1. To have editing privileges to your institutional record, you will need to create an NNLM User Account (See Box). While creating your user account you need to:
    • Select your organization in the Organization field
    • Choose NNLM Liaison in the Role/Position List

Note: If you are unable to find your institution using the auto-fill feature, please contact Jim Honour or Suzanne Sawyer for assistance.

  1. Please review your institution’s record and update it as needed. The data in many institution records is not yet accurate. This is because many institutions have not yet edited their records or did not provide complete data about their organization when creating an account. For example, if you search for hospital libraries in the MCR directory only one library will be returned, while we know there are many more hospital libraries in the region.
  1. DOCLINE Users: Please note that the Members Directory is not linked to DOCLINE. Any data updates made to the institutional record in DOCLINE will not update the Members Directory.
  1. The NNLM Web Services team is continuing to make updates and improvements to the Members Directory. If you see something that would make the directory easier to use, send us your suggestions and we will pass them on to the web services team.
