NLM & You Video Contest Winners Announced
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has announced the winners of the NLM & You: The Video contest and two of the top runners up are from our Region!
The video contest invited the public to create original short videos promoting awareness of NLM’s products and services. Entries were submitted on YouTube and were then screened by a panel of judges from NLM and National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The winners were announced at the May 2-3, 2011 NLM Board of Regents meeting:
Grand prize winner: “James and the Peanut Allergy.” Producer: University of Utah Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library, in collaboration with the Biomedical Informatics Department. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoCAizDEKlM&feature=player_embedded

Second runner-up: “MedlinePlus: Making a Difference Every Day.” Producer: Schusterman Library, University of Oklahoma – Tulsa. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hkq2L6q8x3w&feature=player_embedded
The videos are being captioned and will soon be embedded in NLM’s 175th Anniversary site. The public is invited to use these videos to promote NLM’s “information innovation” for better health.
The contest supports NLM’s mission of publicizing the availability of its information products and services, including but not limited to MEDLINE/PubMed, MedlinePlus, GenBank, PubMed Central, ClinicalTrials.gov, Bookshelf, AIDSinfo, and Profiles in Science.
Congratulations to the teams from the Health Sciences Library and Informatics Center, University of New Mexico and the OU-Tulsa Schusterman Library!
