The Veterans Affairs Library Network (VALNET) is a health sciences library network of national significance. VALNET librarians provide knowledge-based information for clinical and management decision-making, research, and education to enhance the quality of care for Veterans enrolled in the VA Health Care System. VALNET serves a diverse group of users, including Veteran inpatients and outpatients, their families, and caregivers; VA staff and employees; and students and trainees in affiliated teaching programs.
The Library Network Office (LNO), Office of Informatics and Analytics, is the program office that supports VALNET library professionals and staff with centralized services, policies and procedures, staff development opportunities, and assistance with local library issues. Throughout the VA, LNO promotes the importance of knowledge-based resources to quality healthcare, and provides a core collection of nationally funded, authoritative information resources accessible from library websites at medical centers and at home.
