This years theme is We are Local Connect, Create, Contribute. This will be quite appropriate as I work closely with the University of South Alabama hospitals and elderly communities promoting and creating an awareness of the rich and freely available resources from NLM contributing to better health among our community. The exhibit will consist of two tables in a corner booth that maximizes visibility. Resources will be displayed in acrylic displays to enhance the visual presence of the materials on the tables. Two Ipads will also be used to demonstrate MedlinePlus and other databases from the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. In previous years, this has been very valuable so that the participants can see how easy MedlinePlus is to use and the wealth of information it provides. Demonstrations is the use of Genetics Home Reference and other NIH websites will also be provided.
