The National Network of Libraries of Medicine – Middle Atlantic Region
The Network is the core of the National Library of Medicine’s (NLM) outreach program to reduce health disparities and improve health information literacy. Funded by NLM, through cooperative agreements, eight Regional Medical Libraries and five National Offices provide a variety of outreach services such as project funding, training, presentations, exhibits, and other types of public programs. The University of Pittsburgh Health Sciences Library System serves as the Regional Medical Library for the Middle Atlantic Region (MAR), which includes Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The National Network of Libraries of Medicine – Middle Atlantic Region supports the growing trend of communities engaging libraries as health partners.
