New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Library Development.
A task force was appointed to insure that New York State's health information service programs were operating optimally. The task force was charged to review: (1) the effectiveness of the guidelines and assessment form as published in the "Manual for Assessing the Quality of Health Sciences Libraries in Hospitals"; (2) the present funding formula for the Hospital Library Service Program (HLSP); (3) the current program of coupon distribution and use of coupons for payment of interlibrary loan transactions; and (4) possible future directions of both the service program and the interlibrary loan support. Presented in this report are the task force's summary of recommendations, an overview of the HLSP and Regional Medical Library Program (RMLP)/New York State Interlibrary Loan (NYSILL) Interface Program, and the reviews and specific recommendations on the four task force charges. Appendices provide the survey instrument for reference and research library resources systems directors (October 1988); the guidelines for the distribution of RMLP library service coupons (December 1981); and the NYSILL/RML coupon allocation formula (revised January 1983).
