Consumer Health Minute: Creating an NNLM User Account

Posted by on November 4th, 2021 Posted in: Consumer Health, New from NNLM Region 5, Training & Education
Tags: ,

One of the great benefits the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM) offers, is free professional development including consumer health classes.

Classes come in a variety of formats including:

  • On-demand online
  • Scheduled asynchronous online
  • Live webinars
  • Live webinar series with guest speakers
  • Special events

You will be prompted to create an NNLM User Account when registering for classes. This is not the same as being an organizational member. Creating a User Account will make registering for future classes and webinars easier but it also allows you to keep track of the classes you registered for.

Below are steps to creating a user account:

1.) Go to the NNLM website at https://nnlm.gov/

2.) In the upper right corner, click on Create an NNLM User Account (red box highlights this in image below)
