Consumer Health Minute: Creating a NNLM Account and Register for Classes and Webinars

Posted by on August 19th, 2020 Posted in: Health Literacy/Consumer Health, Training & Education
Tags: , ,

Many of you have probably already taken some of the classes offered by the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM) but some of you may be new to this information.

NNLM has offered and continues to offer an array of classes and webinars for your professional development and all for free. Many of these classes and webinars include Medical Library Association CE credits to put towards the Consumer Health Information Specialization (CHIS).

Almost all of the classes and webinars require registration which means you need to create a free account with NNLM. Note, this is not the same as NNLM membership for institutions. Creating an individual account does not include some of the perks offered to NNLM institutional members. It allows you to keep track of your class registrations and allows NNLM to send class and webinar reminders.

How do you create an account?

Select “Create New Account” which is at the bottom of every page of the NNLM website under the words NNLM Login.

Fill out the form and below are some extra tips regarding the important fields you will need to fill in:

  1. Username
  2. E-mail address
  3. First name
  4. Last name
  5. Region (Pacific Northwest)
  6. Organization (You may find your institution by keying in the first few letters or you may just need to add it.)
  7. Telephone
  8. Zip Code
  9. Role/Position (Check all the roles that may apply. Please note, the “NNLM Liaison” role is reserved for only those who are authorized to be the contact for your organization in the Members Directory. You must check “NNLM Liaison” to be able to edit your institutional account.)

Click on “Create new account.” After you have done this you will receive an email with instructions for creating a password.  Your account approval is not immediate. It may take a few days before you receive a confirmation email. Check your Spam folder too.

It is important that you log on after you have completed creating your account to review your institution’s record.

Now you can receive notices of newly listed classes and webinars and register to attend.
