From NLM:

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) are forming a new partnership. They will collaborate to develop initiatives that bring together scholars, scientists, librarians, doctors and cultural heritage professionals from the humanities and biomedical communities in order to share expertise and develop new research agendas.

Representatives from the NLM and the NEH signed a memorandum of understanding that outlines their partnership and recognizes their shared interest in advancing health and medical education, training and information dissemination for research, teaching and learning by the humanities and biomedical communities.

As initial efforts, the partners will work together to:

  • Explore areas of mutual interest for research, particularly in the fields of digital humanities and the history of medicine;
  • Develop and participate in curricula and courses, training and internship opportunities, and other educational initiatives; and
  • Develop initiatives to increase access to careers in medicine and health, with a particular interest in reaching students who are under-represented in the fields
