#colorourcollections

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016

The adult coloring fad inspired a #colorourcollections week! Explore all the libraries participating in #colorourcollections week on Twitter. Medical libraries participating include the National Library of Medicine, the New York Academy of Medicine, and the Biodiversity Heritage Library. Does your library have digitized historical materials you can share for #colorourcollections? Do you love coloring? You can share these with art teachers in your community. I sent the link to the art teacher at my daughter’s elementary school. She loved them. I think the #colorourcollections project is a great way to connect the public with historical collections in an engaging, relaxing, interactive way —with coloring!

Resource Guides on Public Health Incidents

Thursday, January 28th, 2016

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) recently developed resource lists for three public health emergencies affecting both local and global communities. An incident Web page was created to gather resources on the emerging health issues arising from the Zika Virus. Two PDF documents on recent chemical incidents have been updated.  Links to these lists are included below and also can be found on our NLM Disaster Health home page. https://disasterinfo.nlm.nih.gov

Please share these resources freely!

These resource lists link to a variety of sources such as:

  • Local, state, federal and international agencies and organizations
  • Database searches for the health information issues around the incidents
  • Social media resources for situational awareness

To keep up-to-date on these and other Disaster Health resources, please sign-up for our email updates: https://public.govdelivery.com/accounts/USNLMDIMRC/subscriber/new.
