The National Library of Medicine is looking for your stories.
Do you know any stories about people using NLM resources to find out something interesting, forge a new path, or improve their lives in a unique or dramatic way?
Or, more simply, have you ever found just the right information at just the right time, for yourself or for a patron?
For this year’s theater presentations at MLA, NLM wants to team up the NLM staff who develop the resources with the librarians who use them.
They are interested in stories (great and small) about any NLM resource, but especially:
- Health Services Research resources on Comparative Effectiveness, Patient Centered Outcomes, Health Technology Assessment
- DIMRC and other disaster resources
- BIBFRAME and Linked Data
- History of Medicine social media (e.g., Circulating Now)
- PubMed Central
- PubMed Health
If you know someone (or are someone!) who would be interested in sharing their story, please contact Kate Majewski (firstname.lastname@example.org). And please share this message with any librarians who might have stories to tell!
