Consumer Health Minute: NNLM Resource Picks

Posted by on July 22nd, 2019 Posted in: News from NLM, News from NNLM, Training & Education

Did you know that the National Library of Medicine has over 250 products and services? Most of them are not ones your patrons would use but it is amazing to think that this NIH institute has such a large number to offer a wide variety of users. How many have you heard of or used? Would you like to learn more about them?

The webinar series, NNLM Resource Picks is a webinar series that features National Library of Medicine (NLM) resources with experts presenting. It’s a great way to learn more about NLM resources and so you can be more confident and better utilize them in your work. NLM resources featured in the past have included:

During the hour session, attendees not only learn more in-depth information about the resources but have a unique opportunity to ask their questions to the presenter and others who may have some knowledge of the resource and can add their experience and knowledge of the resource as well. Attendees can earn 1 Medical Library Association (MLA) CE and some sessions could be justified to apply towards the Consumer Health Information Specialization (CHIS).

Disaster Information Management Research Center (DIMRC): Disaster Health Literature is the resource to be featured on the next NNLM Resource Picks. During a disaster, decisions are made quickly, based on the information available. This session will provide a brief overview of the essential resources needed to provide health-related information services for supporting disaster preparedness, response, and recovery workforce.
