NNLM Resource Picks: Public Programming and NLM Traveling Exhibitions

NLM Traveling Exhibitions are a unique way to connect your patrons to valuable NLM health information resources through related public programming. To support you and your communities when your libraries borrow NLM exhibitions, the Exhibition Program is developing sample programming ideas related to individual exhibition topics. These ideas will help jump start your creative planning. Julie Botnick will discuss how those ideas can be adapted to your situations and ways to develop your own unique programming.

These programming ideas are at the heart of the new application process for NLM Traveling Exhibitions. Jill Newmark will guide participants through the logistics of preparing strong applications.

Julie Botnick specializes in developing programming for use by exhibition hosts that raises awareness of and engagement with NLM health information resources. Prior to NLM, she was an Education & Outreach Librarian at NNLM PSR. She holds a master’s in library and information studies from UCLA and received her undergraduate degree in history from Yale.

Jill Newmark is the architect of the Exhibition Program traveling exhibition service and currently manages the application process for requesting NLM Traveling Exhibitions. She has curated numerous exhibitions, has published about African Americans in medicine during the American Civil War, and has a long career as a museum registrar.
