National Medical Librarians Month 2007

The Medical Library Association (MLA) has declared October as National Medical Librarians Month. In addition to the many librarians on the NLM staff, NLM relies heavily on the work of medical librarians associated with the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM), made up of more than 5,800 member organizations.

The following medical librarians and their NN/LM SCR funded outreach projects are highlighted for National Medical Librarians Month:

  • Lisa Smith, University of North Texas Health Science Center, Gibson D. Lewis Library, Ft. Worth TX: Health Literacy Education Initiative
  • Deborah Halsted, Houston Academy of Medicine-Texas Medical Center Library, Houston TX, Information RX for School Nurses and Librarians: MedlinePlus and Go Local
