TEDESCO, CLAIRE R.
THESE PROCEEDINGS CONSIST OF PAPERS PRESENTED AT THE MEETING, GROUPED INTO TWO SUBJECT AREAS--THE VETERANS ADMINISTRATION LIBRARY PROGRAM AND THE REGIONAL MEDICAL PROGRAM OF THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. THE IDEA OF THE SUCCESSFUL MEDICAL LIBRARY AS A PHYSICIAN'S LABORATORY IS EXPLORED, REFERRING TO VA HOSPITAL LIBRARIES. A DESCRIPTION OF THE PILOT AUTOMATED HOSPITAL INFORMATION SYSTEM STUDY (PILOT AHIS) IS REVIEWED, WHILE THE FORCES INFLUENCING VA LIBRARY SERVICES ARE OUTLINED IN AN ABSTRACT OF A LONGER PAPER. THE ROLE OF THE VA CENTRAL OFFICE LIBRARY IN THE VA LIBRARY NETWORK AND A DESCRIPTION OF LIBRARY SERVICE IN THE WASHINGTON VA HOSPITAL ARE THE OTHER TOPICS COVERED. THE SECOND GROUP OF PAPERS OPENS WITH THE SUMMARY OF A REVIEW OF CURRENT MEDICAL LIBRARY ASSOCIATION PROGRAMS, FOLLOWED BY AN OVERVIEW OF THE REGIONAL MEDICAL PROGRAM AND ITS RELATION TO MEDICAL LIBRARY ACTIVITIES AND A DISCUSSION OF THE ROLE OF THE MEDICAL LIBRARY ASSOCIATION IN REGIONAL MEDICAL PLANNING. THE COMPLETE TEXT OF THE PAPER ON VA LIBRARY SERVICES IS PUBLISHED IN THE JANUARY, 1968, "BULLETIN OF THE MEDICAL LIBRARY ASSOCIATION" AS "THE VETERANS ADMINISTRATION LIBRARY PROGRAM," BY HENRY J. GARTLAND. (JB)
