Ways in which health science educators can make use of new media was the topic of a conference held in 1971. The proceedings dealt with four major topics: planning and managing the centralized educational resources centers; identifying and solving common educational problems with media; development, production, and distribution of media--delivering and sharing in its use; and evaluating the use of media in the learning process. For each of these topics, an opening speech, a panel discussion with questions and answers, and a summary and report by the panel chairmen are given. In additional papers the centralized educational resources center at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center is described; the Biomedical Communications Network is analyzed; and the impact of the Carnegie Commission Report on health science education and future of Federal funding for health science education communications is explored.
