National Library of Medicine New Director

NLMLogoOn September 12, 2016, Dr. Patricia Flatley Brennan will be sworn in as the new Director of the National Library of Medicine (NLM). You can read about Dr. Brennan’s credentials and accomplishments and watch a video about her vision for the NLM on the NLM in Focus blog. The 3-minute video highlights a number of roles the NLM plays in advancing health, many of which can be extrapolated to apply to local libraries as well. As Dr. Brennan states, “We’re going to have a new understanding of what is health…and the Library will be at the center of making sure that’s accessible and understandable.” ~Annette Parde-Maass Education and Outreach Coordinator National Network of Libraries of Medicine MidContinental Region
