About the HUG:

As a joint effort of the NIH Library and the Center for Information Technology (CIT), the HUG's mission is to provide NIH users with information on handheld resources, services, implementations, and technologies; to offer a forum for the exchange of information and ideas; and to promote awareness of the benefits of handheld technologies in fulfilling the NIH mission.

Getting to NIH:

This event is open to the public but the campus does require security screening.  Since parking is very limited on campus, it is best to take Metro (Medical Center station).  Directions are here:

There is a small lot near Bldg. 10 (just across the street from Bldg. 9 on the map) that has metered parking.  The best bet is MLP-11 which is a paid parking garage just outside the Metro station.  If you've not been here before, factor in extra time for the security checks and distance between the campus entrance and the library.

Here's a parking map for visitors:

If you do take Metro, here's a campus map with shuttle routes:
