National Library of Medicine (NLM) Seeks Public Comment on Current Strategic Plan, RFI Now Available

From the National Library of Medicine:

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) invites the public to provide input and help shape the continuing implementation of its strategic plan through 2027 by responding to this Request for Information (RFI).

As one of the 27 Institutes and Centers of the National Institutes of Health, NLM leads, conducts, and supports research and research training in biomedical information science, informatics, and data science. As the world’s largest biomedical library, NLM advances open science and scholarship by making biomedical information more findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable, and helps create a more diverse and data-skilled workforce. NLM’s work enables researchers, clinicians, and the public to translate a vast wealth of biomedical information into better health.

In the years since NLM’s current strategic plan was released, there have been dozens of initiatives, projects, and other NLM activities in pursuit of its goals. NLM seeks comment on major opportunities or challenges relevant to the NLM mission that have arisen or become significantly more important in the last five years through responses to our recently issued RFI to ensure that implementation of the strategic plan remains current.
