RFI: Strategic Opportunities and Challenges for NLM, NIH
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) invites you to help guide the continuing implementation of our strategic plan through 2027 by responding to our Request for Information, and encouraging others to respond as well.
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is one of the 27 Institutes and Centers of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and leads, conducts, and supports research and research training in biomedical information science, informatics, and data science. NLM is also the world’s largest biomedical library, advancing open science and scholarship by making biomedical information more findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable and helping create a more diverse and data-skilled workforce. Our work enables researchers, clinicians, and the public to translate a vast wealth of biomedical information into better health.
In the years since NLM’s current strategic plan was released, there have been dozens of initiatives, projects, and other NLM activities in pursuit of its goals. To assure that implementation of the Plan remains current, NLM seeks comment on major opportunities or challenges relevant to the NLM mission that have arisen or become significantly more important in the last five years through responses to a recently issued Request for Information.
We hope you will take the time to share your perspectives of recent opportunities and challenges as they relate to the role of NLM.
