Librarians Awarded Exhibit Funding

Congratulations to David Duggar, Head of the Library Liaison Program/Principal Investigator, and Julie Esparza, Head of User Education & Outreach, who recently received the Exhibitor Award from the regional office of the National Library of Medicine. The purpose of this competitive award is to enable librarians to promote and demonstrate National Library of Medicine products to health professionals, health organizations, emergency responders, consumer groups, and public or school librarians.  This award will provide funding for a booth at the 2017 Annual Conference of the Louisiana Library Association.  At this meeting, Mr. Duggar and Ms. Esparza will educate school, public, academic, and subject specialist librarians from all over the state on the science and health resources available from the National Library of Medicine.
