From the GMR: Hello from the new Associate Director, and NN/LM RFI
I'm Beth Layton, the new Associate Director of the GMR. I started on Monday and I'm enjoying learning about the GMR. I hope to meet many of you in the next year at meetings like the MLA Midwest Chapter meeting. Please feel free to contact me by e-mail or phone if you want to touch base.
I also want to remind everyone about the NN/LM Request for Information (RFI); it is an opportunity to comment on the NN/LM program before the next contract. The closing date for the RFI is June 26 at 3pm (ET). This is a great opportunity for you to send your feedback to the National Library of Medicine before they construct the RFP (request for proposal) for the next 5-year contract (2016 - 2021).
Your comments are being requested in several broad areas:
1. Priorities, Strategies, Partnerships
2. Outreach, Programs Training, Resource Sharing
3. Membership, Network Structure, Service Coordination
You may also submit general comments. Instructions for submitting comments are included in the RFI.
Please let me know if you have questions about the RFI or the GMR.
