Seasons of Stories, 2017-2018

Four pics of NLM, one from each seasonHappy New Year! As we look back at 2017, we wrote, we edited, we interviewed, and we rocked—all to share stories about the people and products making a difference in scientific discovery and public health here at NLM.

Here are a few highlights:

Winter 2017
We posted stories about NLM disaster health information courses, reaching its 1,000 topic milestone, senior investigator Teresa Przytycka, and the death of Mary Tyler Moore.

Spring 2017
We introduced readers to our reference librarians, began partying with medical librarian rock stars, celebrated DOCLINE’s 40 million requests, and shared how NLM works to motivate students to consider a medical career.

Summer 2017
We said good-bye to former acting director Betsy Humphreys, a woman who set the standard; we went underground to feature our artists in the basement; and we welcomed our new deputy director Jerry Sheehan.

Fall 2017
We featured NLM’s new Board of Regents chair Dr. Esther Sternberg, kept on rocking, provided tips for warding off vampires, shared NCBI director Jim Ostell’s journey, gave thanks, and invited everyone to take a tour of the Library.

We’re pleased to have posted more stories this year—80 compared to last year’s 60—and we’ve seen our pageviews jump from 63,000 to over 84,000. You also rewarded us with shares, comments, and likes. Please be assured that we like you back!

Next year, we look forward to profiling more scientists, telling you what’s coming up in the exhibition program, sharing news about NLM preparing for its third century, and so much more.
