Hospital Libraries

NNLM MAR promotes the use and access to reliable health information by health professionals in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Delaware. Our Priorities include exploring new roles for hospital libraries; providing support, advocacy, and consultation for hospital librarians in project planning; provide support to hospitals who offer library services to consumers, patients, and family members in their communities; provide training opportunities to incorporate evidence-based practice. The National Library of Medicine (NLM) provides freely available and reliable resources to help enrich your programs.

NNLM MAR provides support for Member efforts in the hospital setting. This comprehensive guide serves as an online collection of resources and tools that are relevant to hospital librarians and health professionals.
