GILLETTE, WY - Campbell County Health Medical Librarian Michlene Mankin has been appointed to the Advisory Board for the MidContinental Region of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine.
The Regional Advisory Board is an active partner in the development, assessment and innovation of health information programming in the MidContinental Region. It meets at least once a year. Members are also assigned to project areas and participate in project work group meetings.
The membership of the Regional Advisory Board represents the diversity of all who work to improve health information access in the region. It is made up of health sciences librarians, representatives of public libraries, health professionals, and representatives of community based organizations. The membership includes two directors from regional Resource Libraries and a representative from the MidContinental Chapter of the Network of Libraries of Medicine. The fifteen members come from each of the six states that make up the region. Ms. Mankin is the only representative from Wyoming, and will serve a two-year term.
"We are proud to have representation from Campbell County Health on this national advisory board," said Baerbel Merrill, Vice President of Mission at CCMH. "Our medical library provides valuable resources to our staff, students from Gillette College and members of the community."
