NLM Traveling Exhibits – An Opportunity for PNR Network Members

Posted by on November 1st, 2018 Posted in: Blog, Health Literacy/Consumer Health, News from NLM, News From NNLM PNR

The National Library of Medicine Exhibition Program creates lively and informative exhibitions and resources that enhance awareness of and appreciation for the collection and health information resources of the National Library of Medicine. In a new initiative, several NLM exhibitions are being made available exclusively to NNLM member organizations. These exhibitions are designed to engage diverse audiences about a variety of topics in the history of medicine. Lesson plans and other resources are included in the online content of each exhibit.

Until November 15, 2018, NNLM PNR members are invited to sign up to host an exhibition, for a 6-week booking period of your first or second choice from January 2019 through April 2021. (Note: you must be an NNLM PNR member to sign up.  However, if your organization is not a member yet, it is easy to join).

Some important details:

  • Exhibition availability varies – dates are available from January 2019 until April 2021.
  • Selecting from a set itinerary of 6-week booking periods, you can designated your preferred booking period, and NLM will try to accommodate your request.
  • Each host will be responsible for the cost and arrangements for outgoing shipping from their location to the next host of the exhibit. FEDEX 3-day super saver service is the required shipping method. For those without a FEDEX account, another reliable service such as UPS or DHL may be used as long as it meets the 3-day service with tracking.
  • NLM will provide support to those hosting by providing exhibitor resources as well as outgoing shipping information to let host venues know where and when to ship the exhibition to the next host venue. Host institutions will be required to complete a brief survey about their experience hosting the exhibit.

Want to know a little more about hosting a traveling exhibit? Watch the NNLM Resource Picks webinar session, “Making the Most of Your National Library of Medicine Traveling Banner Exhibition”.

This is a great opportunity to have first dibs on booking one of the NLM traveling exhibits.  Please feel free to contact Carolyn Martin, NNLM PNR Consumer Health Coordinator, if you have any questions!
