New Horizons for NLM Traveling Exhibitions
In 2018, the National Library of Medicine completed and published its Strategic Plan for 2017-2027. To support the strategic plans’ goal of “reaching more people in more ways through enhanced dissemination and engagement,” the Exhibition Program will soon introduce a new engagement initiative for customers hosting one of our traveling exhibitions. The new engagement initiative will help strengthen the connections host venues make to NLM collections and health information resources as part of their hosting of an NLM traveling exhibition. This webinar will serve as an introduction to this new initiative.
NLM offers a wide variety of health information resources that are available to the public. Beginning in the Fall of 2019, host venues will be required to engage with and promote NLM health information resources during their hosting of one of our traveling exhibitions. Traveling Exhibition Services will help support this effort by providing links and sources for this health information that complement and enhance the content of our exhibitions and are tailored to our customers’ needs. NLM health information resources will include website links, downloadable materials, webinars, capability brochures, posters, etc. and include Daily Med, GenEd, MedlinePlus, Pillbox, PubMed, and ToxTown.
We look to our Regional Medical Libraries and our host venues to provide input on ways in which you can best engage your audience with NLM health information resources and ways in which we can support your efforts.
