In this post, NLM Director Dr. Patti Brennan highlights the many investments that NLM is making with $10 million in emergency funding received as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
With the retirement of Dr. James (Jim) Ostell, Stephen Sherry, PhD, has been named Acting Director of NLM’s National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) effective March 31, 2020.
Using the successful, long-running program of expert engagement and technology assessment called the Text Retrieval Conference (TREC) to the COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19), the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy have launched a joint effort to support the development of search engines for research that will help in the fight against COVID-19.
NLM is working on multiple fronts to improve researchers’ understanding of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes the novel coronavirus) and aid in the response to COVID-19 (the disease caused by the novel coronavirus). By enhancing access to relevant data and information through its many resources, including PubMed Central, Genbank, ClinicalTrials.gov, and PubMed, NLM is demonstrating how libraries can contribute in real time to research and response efforts during this crisis.
