About LiME:

LiME, or Librarians in Medical Education, began as a SIG within the NEGEA community in 2007. The purpose of the SIG was to serve as an opportunity for those teaching information literacy skills to students, residents and faculty to meet with and learn from others in the region who are on the forefront of planning and executing medical curriculum. LiME is not just for librarians but is for anyone interested in how knowledge of using the medical literature and information literacy plays a role in medical education.

This webinar is co-sponsored by the NN/LM NER Instructional Design Community of Interest.
