National Library of Medicine Associate Fellowship Program- webinar

The next PNR Rendezvous session will feature a current National Library of Medicine Associate Fellow, Shannon Sheridan. Shannon is currently in the optional second year of the program and is working at the Hahnemann Library at Drexel University in Philadelphia. Shannon will be giving an overview of the NLM Associate Fellowship Program as well as telling us about her own experience. The NLM Associate Fellowship Program originally began as the NLM Internship Program in 1957 and have a brief hiatus, it was renamed the NLM Associate Fellowship Program in 1966. Fellows work at the National Library of Medicine which is located on the National Institutes of Health campus in Bethesda, Maryland. The first year program includes 2 phases, one with a curriculum focus through experts at NLM and then an opportunity to work on projects focused study, research, and evaluation of NLM resources and services. Many National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) staff have been fellows including Lisa Boyd, Jessi Van Der Volgen, and Kate Flewelling along with many of our colleagues across the country. We encourage attendees to come with questions whether for their own knowledge or to pass on to future health science librarians. This is a fantastic experience and the application process is now open until January 25, 2019 for the 2019 Р2020 program year.
