Introducing Region 7

Posted by on April 6th, 2021 Posted in: Blog

Map of the United States divided into seven regions.The Lamar Soutter Library at the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) has been selected to serve as a Regional Medical Library (RML) for the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM) for 2021-2026. The RML program has done away with geographical based names and is moving to a numerical system. UMMS will be serving Region 7: Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont. This is the fifth consecutive time that the Lamar Soutter Library has been selected the to serve as an RML.

The goal of the NNLM RML program is to advance the progress of medicine and improve public health by providing health professionals with equal access to biomedical information and improving individuals’ access to information to enable them to make informed decisions about their health. Region 7 will continue to increase awareness, facilitate access, and provide training on the NLM’s products. During the upcoming grant cycle, Region 7 will be focused on three initiatives: substance misuse, rural health, and health literacy, particularly around English as a second language.

This project is funded by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Cooperative Agreement Number UG4LM012347 with the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester.
