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 (learn on your own time at your own pace)
  • Scheduled asynchronous online (learn on your own time within the class scheduled time)
  • Live webinar classes
  • Live webinar series with guest speakers
  • Special events

You will need to have an NNLM User Account to register for a class. This is not the same as being an organizational member of NNLM.

Why create a User Account? Because:

  • It is easier to register for NNLM classes and webinars
  • You can keep track of which classes and webinars you register

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)

An NNLM User Account form will appear.

3.) Fill in the required sections of the form. The required sections are marked with a red asterisk *. You do not have to fill in the sections that are not required.

1.) Click on Reset Your Password

3.) The email will have steps to follow to make a new password.
