National Library of Medicine Seeks Input on Mission and Vision
Author: Catherine Sprankle, ILS/Contractor supporting NICEATM
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has issued a Request for Information on the current value and future need for NLM programs, resources, research and training efforts, and services such as databases, software and collections. Input is requested from the general public and specifically from stakeholder groups such as researchers, health professionals, and individuals or institutions that use NLM services. Of particular interest is input on how NLM could better position itself to address challenges associated with biomedical informatics, big data, data science, electronic health records, and digital publications. Responses will be considered by a working group of the Advisory Committee to the NIH Director as part of a process of articulating a new strategic vision for NLM.
The complete Request for Information can be found at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-15-067.html. Responses are requested by March 13.
