Student Engagement

Student Engagement is an NLM and NIH priority area for NNLM. The purpose of NNLM’s strategic focus in this area is to:

  1. champion health sciences librarianship by developing partnerships with Library and Information Science (LIS) and other graduate programs; and
  2. collaborate with undergraduate programs, professional associations, and other organizations to work toward increasing diversity in the LIS pipeline.

NNLM student engagement supports goal three of the 2017-2027 NLM Strategic Plan, “Build a workforce for data-driven research and health.”
