Promoting Your Library

The GMR staff and the Advocacy Working Group of the Regional Advisory Council have partnered to assist you in celebrating your library. We have gathered and maintained a set of free online tools as well as designed an advocacy campaign that you can put to use in your library this October to celebrate National Medical Librarians month. Please download these helpful aids from the repository below.
