MAR welcomes Academic Coordinator AND Upcoming educational opportunities from NN/LM MAR, NLM and other NN/LM regions
MAR has a new Academic Coordinator! We are pleased to welcome Elaina Vitale as the MAR Academic Coordinator. Elaina will have primary responsibility for increasing awareness of, and providing training in the use of NLM’s information resources to librarians, faculty and staff at academic institutions, with an emphasis on community colleges and colleges/universities with programs in the health sciences, health and science education, library science, emergency management, and environmental health. She will also assist in coordinating MAR educational programs that create opportunities for information professionals to increase their skillset and support various phases of research data management.
There is a lot going on this week and the next! We hope you will join us for one or more of the following NN/LM or NLM online sessions. All are welcome, so feel free to share with anyone you feel will be interested.
