NLM Requests Stakeholder Input for Strategic Plan
In a November 8 Request for Information, the National Library of Medicine announced that it is soliciting stakeholder input as part of its ongoing strategic planning process. The RFI and NLM’s planning process are organized around the role of NLM in these four areas:
- Advancing data science, open science, and biomedical informatics
- Advancing biomedical discovery and translational science
- Supporting the public’s health: clinical systems, public health systems and services, and personal health
- Building collections to support discovery and health in the 21st century
The November 8 RFI is intended to obtain public input on goals and priorities for NLM’s next strategic plan. Many NLM stakeholders replied to a similar RFI in 2015 in the context of NLM’s leadership transition and emerging NIH data science priorities. Input provided in 2015 is already under consideration and does not need to be re-submitted.
The deadline for responses to the November 8 RFI is January 9, 2017. More information about the RFI, including how to submit input, is available on the National Institutes of Health Grants website.
