The winners were announced at the May 2-3, 2011 NLM Board of Regents meeting:

Grand prize winner: "James and the Peanut Allergy." Producer: University of Utah Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library, in collaboration with the Biomedical Informatics Department.

First runner-up: "The Fastest Librarian in the West." Producer: Health Sciences Library and Informatics Center, University of New Mexico.

The videos are being captioned and will soon be embedded in the NLM 175th Anniversary site. The public is invited to use these videos to promote the NLM "information innovation" for better health.

The contest supports the NLM mission of publicizing the availability of its information products and services, including but not limited to MEDLINE®/PubMed®, MedlinePlus®, GenBank®, PubMed Central®,, Bookshelf, AIDSinfo®, and Profiles in Science®. Details about the contest may be found on
