The TSRHC hospital libraries were visited by representatives of the National Library of Medicine today. Tyler Moses, an NLM Associate Fellow, came to north Texas to spend time at the National Network of Libraries South Central Region (NNLM SCR) headquarters. Dan Burgard is Director of the NNLM SCR program, which is based at the Lewis Library at UNT Health Science Center in Fort Worth and supports 5 states.
While at the hospital Moses and Burgard met with Mary Peters (Medical Library) and with Mary Anne Fernandez and Jill Johnson (Family Resource Center) to tour the Brandon Carrell Medical Library and the Christi Carter Urschel Family Resource Center.
