Abstract

NLM is directing many of its efforts toward remedying the disparity in health opportunities experienced by important segments of the American population. These efforts are based on the belief that improving access to affordable and easy-to-use health-related information (in the form of published literature, databases, and the authoritative content of others) can help solve health disparities. Collection and database development is critical to this. The advanced information products and services of the National Library of Medicine are built on the foundation stone of its unparalleled collections. The Library today is seen as a principal source of biomedical information and the NLM's many high-technology programs are infused with the confidence and competence resulting from a century and a half of experience in filling the information needs of health professionals. The Library continues to place primary emphasis on its role as acquirer, organizer, and disseminator of health-related information.
