October is National Medical Librarians Month

Posted by on October 3rd, 2011 Posted in: Funding, News From NNLM PNR


Highlighting the fact that medical librarians are the best resource when searching for health information, the theme for this year’s Medical Librarians Month (sponsored by the Medical Library Association) is “Medical Librarians: Your Ultimate Search Engine.”

Librarians have long demonstrated their benefit to their institutions, educating about their services, performing vital roles, and advocating for themselves and their libraries. This increases awareness of the value of libraries to hospital administrators and health care professionals.

What have you done to advocate for your library and increase your visibility in your organization? Share your story for a chance to win a $500 scholarship for MLA 2012 in Seattle. Stories will be published during the Month of October in the Dragonfly, and winners will be announced after October 31.

Tell us how you’ve shown your worth, added a new service, talked to patients or providers about medical libraries, reached out to a new user population, or provided information. Submit your entries by October 31 to Patricia Devine.
