Greater Midwest Region
The Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM) office for the Greater Midwest Region is located at Hardin Library for the Health Sciences at the University of Iowa. By collaborating, training, and funding over 1,100 health centers, health departments, community organizations, as well as medical, public, and school libraries in a 10 state region, the office supports the mission of the NNLM to advance the progress of medicine and improve public health through access to health information.
Farewell to the Greater Midwest Region and Hello to Region 6!
A message from Derek Johnson, Associate Director
On May 1, the structure of the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM) will shift. NNLM is moving from 8 regions to 7, and with that a restructuring of regions. The GMR, as it is now known, will move from 10 states to 7. We will miss our partners in North Dakota, South Dakota and Kentucky. In addition, the RML will no longer be known as the GMR, but as Region 6. I’m thrilled that Hardin Library will be able to continue to serve in its role as the RML for Region 6!
Join our team!
