Changing the Face of Medicine: Celebrating America's Women Physicians

Exhibition Credits

Please use the following credit information on materials you produce for the exhibition. Also see “Further Guidelines for Sponsor Acknowledgement” below.

The traveling exhibition “Changing the Face of Medicine: Celebrating America’s Women Physicians” was developed by the Exhibition Program of the History of Medicine Division of the National Library of Medicine in collaboration with the American Library Association Public Programs Office. The traveling exhibition has been made possible by the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health Office of Research on Women’s Health. The American Medical Women’s Association provided additional support.

Further Guidelines for Sponsor Acknowledgment:

  • The credit above should appear on all printed and other visual materials related to the exhibition, including press releases, brochures, publications, invitations, program flyers, advertisements, press kits, announcements, Web sites and local posters. It should also appear on any signage at the entrance to the exhibition. On all materials, it should appear in a type size that is readable and appropriate to the overall design.

  • Please use the NLM/NIH combined logo, ORWH, AMWA, and ALA logos on materials whenever possible, in particular on smaller PR pieces on which there is not space for the full credit.

  • In speaking to or sending press releases to newspaper reporters, radio and TV interviewers and other media personnel, please stress that full sponsorship and funding credit should be included in all articles and features.
    Some libraries include a line set off at the beginning of press releases saying "
    Editor: Please do not edit out sponsorship credits in paragraph __."

  • At press events and in public programs: The sponsorship of the NLM, the NIH Office of Research on Women’s Health, the American Medical Women’s Association, and the ALA should be acknowledged orally at the beginning and end of press conferences, public programs, and other public events connected with the exhibition, and at the beginning and end of radio or television interviews. Use the official exhibition credit as a guide.

  • Local sponsor credits: Local sponsor credit must follow the “Changing the Face of Medicine” exhibition credit line and be in a type size no larger than the exhibition credit. The exception is materials which are entirely supported by another funding source.
    In those cases, it is still necessary for the credit line above to appear, but the additional sponsor's credit may appear first and in larger type.
