National network of libraries of medicine_

October 1993

The purpose of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine
(NN/LM_) is to provide health science practitioners, investigators,
educators, and administrators in the United States with timely,
convenient access to biomedical and health care information

The Network is administered by the National Library of Medicine. It
consists of eight Regional Medical Libraries (major institutions
under contract with the National Library of Medicine), 136 Resource
Libraries (primarily at medical schools), and some 3,800 Primary
Access Libraries (primarily at hospitals). The Regional Medical
Libraries administer and coordinate services in the Network's eight
geographical regions.

New programs focus on reaching health professionals in rural, inner
city, and other areas who do not have access to medical library
resources. The goal is to make them aware of the services that
Network libraries can provide. Other important Network programs
include the interlibrary lending of more than two million journal
articles, books and other published materials each year; reference
services; training and consultation; and online access to MEDLINE_
and other databases made available by the National Library of

Three of the Regional Medical Libraries have been designated Online
Centers, to conduct National Library of Medicine online training
classes and coordinate online services in several regions.
