Using LISTSERV® Software, the GMRLIST is an email announcement list for the NN/LM Greater Midwest Region.
The GMR staff uses the GMRLIST to communicate news about the National Library of Medicine's (NLM) products and services such as PubMed®, MedlinePlus®, DOCLINE®, ClinicalTrials.gov, etc., and to announce funding opportunities from both the GMR office and NLM. It also used to announce regional meetings and educational offerings, to post jobs, to recruit volunteers for regional activities such as exhibits, and to increase knowledge of and participation in NLM and GMR sponsored projects.
