NIH Plans for the Future of the National Library of Medicine

The National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) director, Francis S. Collins, approved the proposed strategic plan for the National Library of Medicine (NLM). According to NIH’s press release, it “calls for NIH to position the NLM as a unifying force in biomedicine that promotes and accelerates knowledge generation, dissemination and understanding in the United States and internationally.”

The report also suggests that the NLM should expand its activities to include research conducted outside NIH. Congress will help NIH implement the infrastructure changes needed to move forward with the plan.

For more information, read the press release.
