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 products and services.

You can view a list of available classes in the Pacific Southwest Region on the View Training Opportunities page. Upcoming consumer health workshops and registration links for the new Health Pathways series are listed on the Training and Exhibit Calendar.
