The Cornflower, the blog of the Greater Midwest Region (GMR) of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM), is the latest evolution in our newsletter communication tools. After having a print and then an online newsletter for a number of years, the GMR transitioned to a blog or weblog. The Cornflower is a great tool to keep current with NLM and GMR news. Stay on top with the latest information about consumer health, outreach, DOCLINE, technology and more. To access previous newsletters, ESources and 3Sources contact the GMR via email: GMR-LIB@UIOWA.EDU.

The GMR Email Address
GMRLIST is an email announcement list from the NN/LM Greater Midwest Region (Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin).
The GMR staff uses the GMRLIST as a mechanism 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 is also used to announce regional meetings, educational offerings, post jobs, ask for volunteers for regional activities such as exhibits, and to increase knowledge of and participation in NLM and GMR sponsored projects.
GMR staff maintains and moderates the list. Network members may post to the list with GMR approval. If you wish to post to the list, send an email as you would like to see it published, with appropriate subject line, directly to GMRLIST@uic.edu. The GMR staff reviews the messages that are sent out to the list as well as subscription requests in an attempt to prevent spam and other unwanted postings. Commercial postings and advertisements are prohibited.
To sign up for GMRLIST, see LISTSERV® Software and Commands below.
To contact the GMR office directly with questions or comments, please send an email to GMR-LIB@UIOWA.EDU, our office email address. Messages sent to GMR4U are sent to GMR staff and not the LISTSERV.
- Other email discussion groups are hosted by the GMR for health information professionals in the region. Contact the GMR for more information about GMR list hosting.
The GMR prepares and publishes a quarterly (or sooner in emergent situations) document of service and resource updates, known as the GMR Update. GMR staff use the GMR Update at local, state and association meetings to bring members up-to-date on regional activities of the GMR office. The document is available in HTML formats for easy review and printing by network members.
