Libraries and cultural institutions present inspiring stories about history, society, and medicine to their communities through National Library of Medicine (NLM) Traveling Exhibitions. Curated from NLM collections and available free of charge, these exhibitions explore current themes in public health and connect visitors to trusted NLM health information resources such as MedlinePlus and PubMed.

NLM Traveling Exhibitions help to:

  • Connect your community to NLM offerings like MedlinePlus and PubMed
  • Publicize your institution through programming and activities
  • Establish community partnerships and share NLM health information resources with partner institutions
  • Foster health literacy in your community

Below is a list of exhibits that will be hosted by Region 6 organizations in 2023 and 2024, broken down by state. If you would like to learn more about requesting a NLM Traveling Exhibit for your organization visit nnlm.gov/initiatives/traveling-exhibitions.
