  • 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:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/mar-review.

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.
