Abstract

The National Network of Libraries of Medicine, New England Region (NN/LM NER) at the University of Massachusetts Medical seeks to further the mission of the NN/LM, while raising awareness, use and knowledge of National Library of Medicine (http://nlm.nih.gov) resources and services; and increasing collaboration with libraries through a Focused Health Information Outreach model. Focused Health Information Outreach targets specific geographic areas in New England facing high rates of health disparities, socioeconomic challenges, and health care shortages. NER reaches out to libraries, public health agencies, schools, and other stakeholders in the provision of health information to connect them with the NLM. This project summary highlights accomplishments of the NER's third cycle (Year 2) of Focused Outreach. Geographic areas for year 2 included Hartford, Connecticut and North Central Massachusetts.
