Saturday, October 12th, 2013
Dear Network Members:
The NN/LM Middle Atlantic Region (NN/LM MAR) Regional Medical Library is extending an invitation for all network members to provide feedback about the strengths of our program and future directions we should take.  This feedback will help us prepare for an upcoming site review from the National Library of Medicine (NLM) on November 19, 2013.The goal of the site review is to:

  • help NN/LM MAR and NLM understand how the Regional Medical Library is serving its network membership
  • learn how NN/LM MAR can strengthen its program to meet current and emerging needs in the region, and
  • gather ideas for how NLM can support the national network

To provide feedback, please click on the link below.  You can answer as many questions as you want and/or provide other comments:

The responses from this questionnaire will be provided unedited (but without names attached) to those involved in the site review, specifically the site review team along with staff from NN/LM MAR and NLM.  These responses may also be included in the site team’s written report, which is made available to NN/LM MAR staff.  NN/LM MAR in turn, may decide to share the site review report with advisors or advisory groups such as our Regional Advisory Committee.

Your responses are very important to us.  So please take a few moments to send your feedback!  We will be collecting feedback through October 18, 2013.
