Outreach to Special Populations

  • National Library of Medicine (NLM) Outreach To Specific Populations Listserv
    The National Library of Medicine (NLM) announces the creation of a new “Outreach to Specific Populations” listserv. This free information system will provide health information professionals, students and others with an opportunity to share information and discuss outreach to specific populations through quality information, capacity building and community engagement.  This discussion forum will enable participants to stay informed about health information resources, services and programs tailored to specific populations, as well as connect with colleagues in the field and benefit from discussions that address best practices, challenges and gaps associated with health information outreach to specific populations.
