August SCR CONNECTions webinar: NLM’s Hidden Gems

Monday, August 17th, 2015

Please join us this Wednesday, Aug. 19 at 10:30am CT for our monthly SCR CONNECTions. This month’s topic is “Hidden Gems of the National Library of Medicine.”

The NLM has so many resources that it can be a challenge to keep up with them and we suspect some lesser-known ones may be underutilized. So we’ve decided to highlight some of these “hidden gems.”

Instructions for joining are on our webinar webpage and here:
