Greater Midwest Region
The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) 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 NN/LM to advance the progress of medicine and improve public health through access to health information.
NN/LM is more than just "Libraries of Medicine". Organizations who have health information access as part of their mission can apply for membership. Resource Guides for Public Libraries and Health Professionals have been created to assist professionals in a variety of health information roles. Topical resources include STEM Resources for K-12 and higher education.
NLM Educational Materials
The GMR provides limited quantities of free NLM and NN/LM print materials to new GMR network members, GMR network members providing outreach through our awards, and GMR members who request materials for special events.
