SMH Baltic

SMH Baltic Sea Region Cooperation. A Partnership of Medical and Health Libraries. Ceased in 2017.

The first steps towards a partnership programme between the Nordic and the Baltic health libraries were initiated in 1994. The Nordic Association for Medical and Health Information (NAHMI) consisted of all the Nordic national medical library associations. Within the framework of NAHMI, each national medical association started its own partnership with a Baltic country.

The Baltic countries were invited to join NAMHI in 2000, and the Baltic Association for Medical Libraries was established in 2002. From 2004 NAMHI became the Nordic Baltic Association for Medical and Health Information. (Ceased 2012).

In 2001 the library of the Medical Academy of Postgraduate Studies (MAPS), St Petersburg, Russia, was included in this partnership through the cooperation between the Norwegian Library Association Section for Medicine and Health (SMH) and the Task Force on Communicable Disease Control in the Baltic Sea Region.

The last SMH Baltic committee were; Elisabeth Husem,  Signe Romuld Statens helsetilsyn, Biblioteket og Astrid Müller Universitetsbiblioteket i Oslo,  Medisinsk bibliotek
