Launch of NLM 175th Anniversary Web Site!
NLM is celebrating its 175th anniversary in 2011! The National Institutes of Health has issued a press release about the anniversary, which appears on the NLM home page. Feel free to use its language to publicize the big anniversary year! Another exciting development is the launch of the new 175th anniversary Web site, which includes details about NLM’s history, its programs and services, and anniversary year events. The site also includes anniversary logos in various formats, which you may want to add to your own Web sites and publications, as well as a list of commemorative products.
Several special programs in support of the Library’s mission are planned, including a scientific symposium on the future of clinical trials June 6-7, 2011; contests to recognize original short videos that promote awareness of NLM’s information products and services, and creative applications that demonstrate the greatest potential to deliver information to the public using NLM data resources; and other activities throughout the year. You may have also heard about NLM staff members’ special “numerical” salute to the 175th anniversary. A photo of the event, along with other details, is available. The photo is also available in the public domain.
We will publicize other anniversary developments as they occur. Questions may be directed to Melanie Modlin at NLM.
