Amanda J. Wilson
Head, National Network Coordinating Office, NNCO
Amanda J. Wilson was appointed Head, National Network Coordinating Office (NNCO), in January 2017. NNCO coordinates the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM), the field force for the National Library of Medicine. The mission of the NNLM is to advance the progress of medicine and improve the public health by: 1) providing all U.S. health professionals equal access to biomedical information and, 2) improving the public's access to information, enabling them to make informed decisions about their health and healthcare. One of the major accomplishments of Wilson's tenure at NNCO is the establishment of a new partnership between NLM and the NIH All of Us Research Program. The purpose of the partnership is improving consumer access to high quality health information in communities throughout the U.S., specifically, by working with public libraries.
From Dec 2006-Jan 2017, Wilson served as Director, National Transportation Library (NTL), an all-digital library. At NTL, she focused on building collections, data curation, increasing awareness of NTL collections and services, and coordinating the national network of transportation libraries. Prior to NTL, Wilson served as Assistant Professor and Metadata Librarian at The Ohio State University Libraries. Since 2016, she has served as Chair of CENDI, the federal scientific and technical information (STI) managers group. Wilson is also an adjunct professor at The Catholic University of America Department of Library and Information Science.
