Get Involved With MCR!
Developing collaborations among Network members to improve access and sharing of biomedical information resources is an important goal for the National Network of Libraries of Medicine MidContinental Region (NN/LM MCR.) We invite you to get involved. Network members can learn from and expand their experiences plus meet new people from diverse backgrounds.
Are you interested in collaborating with the NN/LM MCR in a project or program? Contact your state coordinator.
Benefit to you: most of these activities qualify for the Medical Library Association's AHIP (Academy of Health Information Professionals) certification points.
Teaching & Training
Are you energized when you share your knowledge with groups?
- Collaborate with MCR coordinators in training health professionals, librarians, or the public on NLM or NN/LM resources at meetings, conferences or webinars.
- Examples of training and education sponsored by the MCR may be found here.
Contribute to the Plains to Peaks Post
Are you good at putting pen to paper or fingers to keyboard? Get published in Plains to Peaks Post.
- Share the cool things that are going on at your library or institution.
- Articles are fairly short, about 500 words.
Regional Advisory Groups and Workgroups
Are you an outcome oriented person? Like to work with others? Do you have good ideas that you’d like to put into play? NN/LM Network members can increase their influence in NN/LM MCR operations and types of services offered by joining a national or regional advisory group. Some coordinators also have workgroups.
Workgroups are organized within the MCR's special project areas, from advocacy to technology, from document delivery to community outreach to minority groups. Take a look at the MCR special project areas, see what matches your interests, and then give the coordinator a call!
