With a preface by Louis Sullivan, MD, former U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, this new multi-authored book describes the transformative impact of the expansion of programs and services during Donald A.B. Lindberg’s tenure as NLM Director from 1984 to 2015.

In four sections—biomedical and health informatics, the multiple dimensions of health information access, Don Lindberg’s outreach legacy, and memoirs by family and friends—the book provides insiders’ perspectives on Dr. Lindberg’s priorities, decisions, actions, and personal qualities and on the contributions of NLM staff and others with whom he worked. As a source of insights into many developments affecting research, informatics, scholarly communication, public policy, and libraries, the book should be of interest to a wide audience.

The publisher has extended a 50% discount on the print version to the MLA community, valid until March 31, 2022 (ebook will be open access).
