Libraries in Medical Education (LiME)
Libraries in Medical Education (LiME) is an official special interest group (SIG) within the regional Groups on Educational Affairs (GEA). GEA (http://www.aamc.org/members/gea) is one of several professional development groups of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). There are four official LiME SIGs, which reside within the Central, Southern, Northeast and Western regions.
Since 2005 LiME has been active presenting posters and paper sessions, leading continuing education workshops and meeting at national and regional meetings. As the LiME groups grow and look to the future, there is a desire for increased national collaboration between the regional LiME groups and other organizations such as MLA and AAHSL. It is hoped that LiME will facilitate the sharing of best practices and educational materials, as well as serve as a forum for questions, opportunities and collaborations.
LiME membership is open to any member of an AAMC institution who self-identifies as being interested in Libraries in Medical Education. Librarians who are interested in joining should contact the chair of their regional group
