This summer the United States is experiencing an unprecedented heat wave, with temperatures exceeding 100 degrees for days on end across the country. When health challenges emerge, people often turn to libraries as sources of information and support. NLM is proud of its resources that link people to the trusted health information they need.
Beyond the vast portfolio of products and services that NLM provides (‘what’), how do we seek to identify impact and benefit to the American people (‘so what’)? And in the face of observed outcomes and impacts (the results and effects of our products, services, and research), what should we do next? How do we learn from the data and information about our efforts to advance excellence and innovation at NLM (‘now what’)?
NLM has advanced biomedicine and public health by acquiring, organizing, preserving, and disseminating knowledge that is essential to research, medicine, and health. We must ensure information being shared and used for research is useful to those who use it, and the answer lies in interoperability.
Did you know? The NLM Extramural Programs division helps authors publish book-length manuscripts and other scholarly works of value on academic and public health policy topics important to health professionals. Learn more about the program and how to apply!
