Title: The NLM and Medical Education, 1969
MMC Commentary: This paper was written for the Journal of Medical Education and is directed to that audience. I explain that the National Library of Medicine's aim was to develop a national health communications resource to be shared freely on a dedicated basis. The paper describes the biomedical communications network, which is the principal function of the Lister Hill Center. The network was based on the tenet that educational processes must be coupled with information resources. The paper describes the components of the network, particularly the specialized educational services component and its objectives.
