Training

    We offer training sessions for public libraries interested in National Library of Medicine resources and other health information topics. Our goal is to equip public libraries with increased confidence and skill in providing health information. You can see a complete schedule of upcoming training opportunities on our training calendar. If there a course or a topic you are interested in that is not scheduled, please feel free to send me an email. 

    Below is a sample of the courses that qualify for the Medical Library Association's Consumer Health Information Specialization Program. We also encourage you to use these training materials to educate your library's staff and patrons.

    Certifications

    The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) provides many of the courses required for certifications from the Medical Library Association at no cost. Additionally, the Greater Midwest Region offers funding opportunities to cover the cost of the certification application fee.
