The Head of the National Network Office (NNO) of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) serves as a national leader in developing collaborations among libraries in the Network.

The NNO Head is responsible for monitoring, evaluating, and advising on all aspects of biomedical information provision, for outreach to groups experiencing health disparities, and for the provision of access to medical information in emergency and disaster situations (national and international).  The Head also advises on public health information policy issues related to programs conducted throughout the Network.

As a supervisory librarian at the GS-15 level, the position has a salary range of $126,245-$158,700, and reports to the Associate Director for Library Operations, Joyce Backus.

NLM will begin accepting applications for this position in early March.  At that time, we will release a second announcement with a link to the actual application.

We hope that you will consider applying for this exciting leadership opportunity.

EFTS Tips

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

Credit Card transactions can promptly be processed, provided the information we have on file is complete and accurate. Please keep in mind that when your Credit Card expires, your ‘new’ information needs to be updated with EFTS. When a new card is issued, not only the expiration date changes, but also the 3 digit verification number (located on the back of your card in the signature line) also changes. Without that proper information we are unable to process your request and consequently must ‘decline’ that request for a credit card transaction. Whenever any changes occur with your Credit Card information please print the “Credit Card Transaction” form: https://efts.uchc.edu/EftsPublic/forms.aspx fill it out with the updated information and FAX, e-mail or phone in the updated info to our office as soon as possible as to avoid any delays in processing your Credit Card transaction request.

Closing During the Holidays?

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

The holiday season is upon us, so we’d like to remind users that you can help keep requests moving efficiently through DOCLINE by completing the “Out of Office” form which will prevent requests from routing to your library during a closure.

You can set a future ‘Out of Office’ date range and request RML approval at any time by going to the Institutions, Update, Out of Office page.  However, we do suggest you submit your request for deactivation a few days in advance of your departure to ensure time for your RML to review.  Please note only one ‘Out of Office’ date range is permitted at a time; you cannot request a second deactivation period until the present period is past. Detailed instructions for use of this feature can be found at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/services/doc_deactivate.html.

To expedite borrower’s requests through DOCLINE, please process as many requests as possible as ‘Filled’ or ‘Not Filled’ on the last day your library is active.  At the end of the day, please receipt any new requests and process all outstanding requests as ‘Not Filled’ so they will immediately route on to the next potential lender.

If you have questions, you can call your RML at 800-338-7657.  Canadian libraries should call CISTI at 1-800-668-1222.

Best wishes to all for a safe and joyous holiday season.
