National Medical Librarians Month

The 2013 NMLM theme, "Saving You Time So You Can Save Lives," helps to promote the fact that medical librarians' knowledge of resources, search skills, and response time ensures that medical professionals receive the highest quality health information available. Use National Medical Librarians Month to highlight your library's value and contributions to your institution and community. Display the poster before, during, and after October to help remind the doctors, nurses, students, and administrators that the services you provide save them time so that they can concentrate on saving lives.
