Did you know that the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) offers on line training opportunities, including classes accredited for specializations including CHIS (Consumer Health Information Specialization), CHES (Certified Health Education Specialist) and DIS (Disaster Information Specialization)? An on line catalog supports searching for classes by keyword or filtering results by topic, such as 'Hospital Libraries' or 'Public Libraries' as well as searching for classes by continuing education specializations.
Summer offerings include PubMed for Librarians: Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) on July 16 and What's in a Data Story? Understanding the BAsics of Data Storytelling on August 15.

"Medicine in the Americas is a digital library project that makes freely available original works demonstrating the evolution of American medicine from colonial frontier outposts of the 17th century to research hospitals of the 20th century.
Drawing on the collections of NLM's History of Medicine Division and including works from the United States, Latin America, the Caribbean and Canada, this initial release of Medicine in the Americas encompasses monographs dating from 1610 to 1865. Additional titles, dating up to 1920 and drawing further upon NLM's comprehensive collection of early American printed books and journals, will be available on an ongoing basis in the future.
Medicine in the Americas will be of interest to scholars, educators, writers, students and others who wish to use primary historical materials to help expand knowledge of medical and public health history for the advancement of scholarship across the disciplines and for the education of the general public."
