NLM in Focus congratulates our most recent NLM Associates Fellows who were recognized for their work at the annual meeting of the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the Medical Library Association held last week in Staunton, Virginia.
Candace Norton, a second year Associate Fellow, won first prize for her poster “Enhancing ‘safety’ and ‘case report’ search filters applied in MEDLINE to support PubMed literature ‘Alerts’ for pharmacovigilance,” co-authored with NLM colleagues Anna Ripple, MLS, Alfred Sorbello, DO, MPH, and Olivier Bodenreider MD, PhD. Norton is spending the second year of her fellowship at the NIH Library as a biomedical librarian with a focus on bibliometrics.
