NLM Board of Regents
The NLM Board of Regents was established in 1956 by the same Act that created the National Library of Medicine. It serves as the advisory body to the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, the HHS Assistant Secretary for Health, the Director of the National Institutes of Health, and the NLM Director, on all important aspects of policy regarding the Library, and is the final review body for NLM grants. The Board meets three times a year – in February, May, and September.
