National Library of Medicine Resources

National Library of Medicine (NLM)

The National Library of Medicine (NLM), on the campus of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, has been a center of information innovation since its founding in 1836. The world’s largest biomedical library, NLM maintains and makes available a vast print collection and produces electronic information resources on a wide range of topics that are searched billions of times each year by millions of people around the globe. It also supports and conducts research, development, and training in biomedical informatics and health information technology.  In addition, the Library coordinates a 6,000-member National Network of Libraries of Medicine that promotes and provides access to health information in communities across the United States. SUNY Ulster or Macdonald Dewitt Library is a member of the Middle Atlantic Region (NN/LM MAR).

NLM Award

The Middle Atlantic Region (NN/LM MAR) funded an outreach project during 2014/15 to Ulster County Community College and neighboring colleges:  DCC, OCC, RCC, and SCC.  This award supported awareness and training for librarians, faculty and graduating students in health and health-related professions about National Library of Medicine resources. These NLM resources, both web and mobile versions, can support medical information needs and lifelong learning. The resources are available 24/7, wherever there is access to the Internet.
