NLM Launches “ReferencePoint” Blog, Tailored to Health Sciences Library Staff


The National Library of Medicine (NLM), the world's largest medical library and a component of the National Institutes of Health, has a new blog, ReferencePoint, targeting health sciences library staff in the United States and abroad.

ReferencePoint postings will: 

  • Increase awareness of NLM products and services available online and onsite.
  • Inform the targeted audiences about health sciences resources outside of NLM.
  • Promote dialogue and learning exchanges between NLM staff and staff at other libraries.

This is a moderated blog which anyone can see. Reference librarians and other NLM staff will write, review and respond to comments during regular business hours. Ask questions or comment about any resources listed in the space at the end of each posting. You must register and log-in to post comments. You can also read ReferencePoint as an RSS feed.

Please Note:

Do not send reference questions to the blog. For reference questions, visit the Library's FAQ page and the Reference and Web Services home page.

Reporters/Media: You must send your questions to the NLM Office of Communications & Public Liaison ( and 301.496.6308). Do not submit questions to the blog as comments.

The blog managers look forward to future discussions and the sharing of ideas. Check out the blog at // and look for new postings on a regular basis.
