National Medical Librarians Month:

MAR wants to make you a star - Win a trip to MLA 2015!

October is National Medical Librarians Month.  MAR would like to acknowledge the valuable work our medical librarians do by sharing your accomplishments, programs or value added services with others.
We are asking you to send us your stories about any unique programs you developed, any outreach to the community you participated in, or any other value added services you offer to your organization or institution.
With your permission we will share your stories on the MAR website throughout the month of October. Anyone who has made a submission by Oct. 4 will be entered into a random drawing to receive an award to cover registration and airfare to MLA 2015 in Austin, Texas.

We can't wait to make you a "Star" - submit your story to nnlmmar at pitt.edu<mailto:nnlmmar at pitt.edu> today!  (Multiple entries may be received from the same library, but please only one entry per person.)

Celebrate Medical Librarian Month with a Health Information Awareness Award from MAR!

The Medical Library Association (MLA) has declared October as National Medical Librarians Month<https://www.mlanet.org/resources/nml-month/index.html>. What better way to celebrate than receiving some funding from NN/LM MAR to promote your services!  We still have funds available for Health Information Awareness Awards<http://nnlm.gov/mar/funding/health_aware2014.html>.  These awards allow you up to $3,000 to purchase posters or flyers or hold an event to showcase the amazing work that you do!
