The NNLM PNR supports the professional development of its Network Members in several ways, including:
In addition to our popular PNR Rendezvous, which is a monthly webinar series presented focusing on various topics such as health, research, resources, librarianship, and technology for attendees to incorporate into their work, The NNLM PNR also provides other educational opportunities. The Professional Development Lending Library is a collection of books on topics of interest to medical librarians. Topics included are Administration/Management, Consumer Health, Copyright/Licensing, Data Management, Library Instruction, and Solo Librarianship. Book loans are free to our Network Members. The Medical Library Association provides several educational webinars per year to meet the needs of health information professionals, and the NNLM PNR buys a site license providing access, for which Network Members may register. And, the NNLM PNR also provides Professional Development Awards, which are designed to enable individuals at Network Member institutions to expand professional knowledge through continuing education to provide state of the art services to healthcare providers, researchers and/or consumers seeking health information. Stay tuned for a new round of Professional Development Awards to be announced soon, and please let us know if you have any ideas for additional ways the NNLM PNR can support your professional development.
