The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is pleased to announce the release of a new tutorial on MedlinePlus Connect. MedlinePlus is a website of the National Institutes of Health, produced by NLM, to provide high-quality health information written for the general public. MedlinePlus Connect is a tool that enables the integration of MedlinePlus resources into external systems like electronic health record systems, patient portals, and other applications.

This training session, of particular interest to hospital librarians and other health sciences information specialists, is intended to introduce you to what MedlinePlus Connect does and how, and point you to resources for implementing MedlinePlus Connect at your institution. You can obtain one hour of Medical Library Association (MLA) continuing education credit for completing the course. Additionally, the course is eligible toward Competency 7, Technology and Health, for the MLA Consumer Health Information Specialization (CHIS).
