NNLM MAR staff provide no-cost training sessions on health information resources, with an emphasis on free resources from the National Library of Medicine (NLM). If you are interested in having an NNLM MAR staff member speak to your professional or consumer group, please contact us.
NNLM MAR is dedicated to helping Members utilize the wealth of biomedical information that is available online, especially those resources produced by the National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health. Our Resource Guides are developed and maintained by RML staff, to provide specific resources for targeted audiences or highlight specific topics. These are comprehensive reference tools to help you explore the avenues in which you can access health information, locate free materials, and incorporate NLM resources into your curriculum or programming.
