Serving Western New England

Baystate Library & Knowledge Services represents the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) in Western New England.

The mission of the NN/LM is to advance the progress of medicine and improve the public health by providing all health care providers in the United States with equal access to biomedical information. The NN/LM works toward improving public access to information to enable them to make informed decisions about their health.

The University of Massachusetts Medical School’s Lamar Soutter Library, the Regional Medical Library for the NN/LM New England Region (NER), develops and coordinates comprehensive programs that address this network mission. 

Baystate Health partners with NN/LM-NER to bring consumer health information to the neighborhoods of Western New England.  We focus on the urban & rural health needs of Hampden, Hampshire, Franklin and Berkshire counties.
