Training & Educational Opportunities

Our goal is to promote awareness of and access to biomedical information resources for health professionals and the public. One of the ways we do this is by offering training in the effective use of Internet health information resources, highlighting National Library of Medicine and National Network of Libraries of Medicine resources and services.

You can view a list of current classes in the Pacific Southwest Region on the View Training Opportunities page. To see a list of classes and workshops that we teach, go to the Available Classes page.

Our staff teaches classes and workshops highlighting NLM and NN/LM databases and resources. If you would like to make arrangements or if you have any questions, please contact us at

In order for us to teach at your location, the institution must provide the following:

  • a computer lab with individual workstations for 1-2 attendees each
  • an instructor workstation

If you are hosting a meeting or event in the Pacific Southwest Region and would like training as part of that activity, we can assist you.  Our staff will do a presentation, demonstration, or workshop for your organization, professional association or community group, highlighting NLM and NN/LM services. Our audiences include librarians, health care providers, public health professionals, educators, health advocates, and others who provide access to health information and library resources in their communities.
