I (Liz Fine) agreed to stay on for one more term as the state representative for Minnesota, and new to the RAC this contract is Martha Hardy, from Metropolitan State University in St. Paul. Martha was selected to be a representative voice for the needs of non-medical academic libraries across the Region. Welcome, Martha!

The Library of the Health Sciences (LHS) of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), serving in its role as the Regional Medical Library (RML) for the Greater Midwest Region (GMR) of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM), announces the appointment of its Regional Advisory Council.

The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) is a network of libraries and information centers in the United States whose mission is to advance the progress of medicine and improve the public health by: 1) providing all U.S. health professionals with equal access to biomedical information; and, 2) improving the public's access to information to enable them to make informed decisions about their health. The Network is administered by the National Library

Members of the Regional Advisory Council (RAC) include health science librarians, health professionals, community librarians, and representatives of other community-based organizations that provide health information. The RAC will advise the RML on developing and implementing programs to improve health professionals' and consumers' access to biomedical information, and will assist the RML in establishing regional priorities.

For example, projects may increase awareness of health information resources, demonstrate how libraries and librarians can assist planners and responders with disaster-related information needs, show ways in which disaster workers can educate librarians about disaster management, and/or include collaboration among partners in developing information resources that support planning and response to public health emergencies.

Contract awards will be offered for a minimum of $15,000 to a maximum of $30,000 each for a one-year project.

I wanted to make you aware of a new E-Licensing Group offer. Have you heard of JoVE? JoVE is the first peer-reviewed scientific video journal for biological, medical, chemical, and physical research indexed in Medline and PubMed. Content presently includes over 1,200 articles and adds about 50 articles each month.
