National Medical Librarians Month

nmlm_poster_2013_smThe Medical Library Association dedicates each October to celebrating National Medical Librarians Month, to bring attention to the professionals who provide expert assistance to students, faculty, health care providers and the public in health science libraries.

The 2013  theme of National Medical Librarians Month is “Saving You Time So You Can Save Lives.” Medical librarians’ knowledge of resources, search skills, and response time ensures that medical professionals receive the highest quality health information available.

Librarians partner with departments, programs, offices, and courses to offer training and support for education, research, clinical activity, and community service. To learn more about what we do or to request assistance from a librarian, please contact us or browse our Annual Reports and Making Lives Better page.  If you would like to tell us your opinion of our collections, services, staff or facilities, or to make a suggestion for improvement, send an email to Askalibrarian@uthscsa.edu.
