NLM Launches Outreach To Specific Populations Listserv

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) announces the creation of a new “Outreach to Specific Populations” listserv – http://sis.nlm.nih.gov/outreach/osplistserv.html.  This free information system will provide health information professionals, students and others with an opportunity to share information and discuss outreach to specific populations through quality information, capacity building and community engagement.  This discussion forum will enable participants to stay informed about health information resources, services and programs tailored to specific populations, as well as connect with colleagues in the field and benefit from discussions that address best practices, challenges and gaps associated with health information outreach to specific populations.  It was created by the Outreach and Special Populations Branch in the NLM Division of Specialized Information Services (SIS).

Information distributed through the Outreach to Specific Populations list will include but not be limited to:

  • Health information outreach programs and services tailored to specific populations (i.e. – Students/Educators, Health Professionals, Minorities, Women, Seniors, etc.)
  • Information resources addressing health topics ranging from HIV/AIDS and Environmental Health to Emergency and Disaster Preparedness
  • Announcements of funding opportunities
  • Notices of national, state and/or local meetings and conferences
  • Information and technological resources for and about specific populations
  • Training opportunities
  • Best practices, trends, new ideas
  • Publications, articles and research findings related to health information outreach
