United States National Library of Medicine (français)
The National Library of Medicine plays a pivotal role in translating biomedical research into practice. As the world’s largest biomedical library, NLM creates and hosts major resources, tools, and services for literature, data, standards, and more, sending more than 100 terabytes of data to nearly five million users and receiving more than ten terabytes of data from more than 3,000 users every weekday.

Scientists, health professionals, and the public in the United States and around the world search the Library's online information resources billions of times each year.In addition, NLM leads research and research training in biomedical informatics, information science, and data science. It conducts intramural research and training it is own laboratories and supports extramural research and training in institutions across the United States.

NLM is part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in Bethesda, Maryland, tracing its roots to the founding of the library of the U.S. Army Surgeon General in 1836.

NLM’s Strategic Plan for 2017–2027 envisions NLM as a platform for biomedical discovery and data-powered health by 1) innovating, building, and sustaining an open ecosystem for health information, biomedical data, and scientific scholarship, 2) optimizing user experience and use of our data, literature, and information resources, and 3) assuring a diverse and growing data-savvy biomedical workforce and data-ready users of NLM resources. NLM facilitates open science and scholarship by making digital (and non-digital) research objects findable, accessible, interoperable, reusable, attributable, and sustainable. The practice, products, and processes of data science and open science permeate all of NLM, throughout both its research and service portfolios.

More specifically, NLM carries out its mission of enabling biomedical research, supporting health care and public health, and promoting healthy behavior by—

   Acquiring, organizing, preserving, and providing free online access to scholarly biomedical literature from around the world.
   Providing access to biomedical and health information across the country in partnership with the over 6,400 members of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine
   Serving as a leading global resource for building, curating, and providing sophisticated access to molecular biology, genomic, clinical trial, toxicological, environmental health and other types of biomedical data, including those from high-profile, trans-NIH initiatives.
   Conducting research and development on biomedical communications systems, methods, technologies, and networks and information dissemination and utilization among health professionals, patients, and the general public.
   Funding advanced biomedical informatics and data science research and serving as the primary supporter of pre- and post-doctoral research training in biomedical informatics and data science at 18 U.S. universities.
