NLM Technical Bulletin, Mar-Apr 2018, Eric Dishman to Deliver the 2018 Joseph Leiter NLM/MLA Lecture, May 9, 2018

As director of All of Us, Dishman leads the agency’s efforts to build a national research program of one million or more US participants to advance precision medicine. Previously, he was an Intel Fellow & Vice President of the Health & Life Sciences Group at Intel Corporation, where he was responsible for driving global strategy, research and development, product & platform development, and policy initiatives for health & life science solutions. His organization focused on growth opportunities for Intel in health information technology, genomics & personalized medicine, consumer wellness, & care coordination technologies.
Dishman is widely recognized as a global leader in health care innovation with specific expertise in home & community-based technologies & services for chronic disease management & independent living. Trained as a social scientist, he is known for pioneering innovation techniques that incorporate anthropology, ethnography, & other social science methods into the development of new technologies. He also brings a unique personal perspective, as a cancer patient for 23 years—finally cured thanks to precision medicine—to drive a person-centric view of health care transformation.
The Joseph Leiter NLM/MLA Lecture was established in 1983 to stimulate intellectual liaison between the MLA & the NLM. Leiter was a major contributor in cancer research at the National Cancer Institute and a leader at NLM as a champion of medical librarians & an informatics pioneer. He served as NLM Associate Director for Library Operations from 1965 to 1983.

NLM Technical Bulletin, Mar-Apr 2018, PMC Author Name and Disclaimer Display

PMC Author Name & Disclaimer Display. NLM Tech Bull. 2018 Mar-Apr;(421):e4.
[Editor’s Note: This is a reprint of an announcement from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). To automatically receive the latest news & announcements regarding major changes & updates to PubMed Central (PMC), please see the subscribe page.]
In collaboration with Europe PubMed Central, PMC has implemented several updates to the article display in order to enhance the transparency & readability of the content.
Navigating from the PMC record to the PubMed record has been made easier by the addition of hyperlinked PubMed IDs (PMIDs) in the upper right-hand corner of article records (see A in Figure 1). Clicking the PMID link will take you to the corresponding citation record in PubMed.
The PMC Disclaimer link has also been moved out of the Copyright & License information section for easier discovery & access (see B in Figure 1). This page describes what content is included in PMC as well as other important NCBI and NLM disclaimer information. Figure 1: PMC article display.
Additionally, two changes have been implemented to improve the functionality of author names. Users now can click on an author name to view the author’s affiliation(s) (see A in Figure 2). Users also have the option of running a quick author name search in PMC by clicking the linked author name in “Find articles by [author name]” (see B in Figure 2). In the example, the search is “Sawyer SL”[Author]. Figure 2: PMC quick author search.
Finally, figures and tables have been…
