You can provide important input to the National Institutes of Health Working Group on the National Library of Medicine
You have a unique opportunity to affect the future of the National Library of Medicine (NLM).
Dr. Francis Collins, Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), has convened a “Working Group to Chart the Course for the NIH National Library of Medicine.” The working group has developed a Request for Information to collect input from stakeholders and members of the public regarding the current value of and future need for NLM programs, resources, research and training efforts, and services. (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/rfi/rfi.cfm?ID=41) Note that Comment Box 2 specifically asks for comments on NLM elements related to toxicology and environmental health.
Please consider responding by March 13thto this time-sensitive NIH Request for Information, soliciting input into the deliberations of the working group of the advisory committee to the NIH Director. It is an important opportunity to contribute feedback regarding the value of the National Library of Medicine and of the NLM Toxicology and Environmental Health Information Program (TEHIP), and to directly influence the future of this organization.The NLM Toxicology and Environmental Health Information Program (TEHIP), a branch of the National Library of Medicine Specialized Information Services Division (SIS), maintains a comprehensive web site that provides access to resources produced by it and by other government agencies and organizations. This site includes links to databases, bibliographies, tutorials, and other scientific and consumer-oriented resources. TEHIP also is responsible for the Toxicology Data Network (TOXNET®), an integrated system of toxicology and environmental health databases that are available free of charge on the web. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/http://sis.nlm.nih.gov/enviro.htmlhttp://toxnet.nlm.nih.gov/
