The mission of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) is to advance the progress of medicine and improve the public health by providing all U.S. health professionals with equal access to biomedical information and improving the public’s access to information to enable them to make informed decisions about their health. The Program is coordinated by the National Library of Medicine and carried out through a nationwide network of health science libraries and information centers.
Additionally, the program provides support to member libraries and information centers in the NNLM to facilitate the provision of health information and services to health professionals and the general public. Members within the network are supported via eight regional offices, (i.e. Regional Medical Libraries) under contract to the National Library of Medicine. Each Regional Medical Library cascades the services and programs of the NNLM to the communities and professionals within their designated region.
The Regional Medical Library (RML) of the South Central Region (SCR) serves health providers, public health professionals, researchers, community-based organizations, libraries and the general public within the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. The primary goal of the RML is to offer programming, services, and resources that increase access to authoritative health information and help to create solutions for healthier communities across the South Central Region.
