Education for Hospital Library Personnel, Continuation of Feasibility Study for Continuing Education of Medical Librarians. Interim Report No.2.
Rees, Alan M.; And Others
This survey of Ohio hospitals and their libraries was a preliminary task in the design, implementation and evaluation of a comprehensive program of continuing education for hospital library personnel. Two basic issues explored in this report are the co-occurrence of hospital libraries and pa"ticular hospital functions and the possibility of predicting the existence and level of operation of a hospital's medical library from information regarding the functions of patient care, research, and education. Data were collected from the Annual Hospital Registration Forms submitted to the Ohio Department of Health by each hospital and from a questionnaire survey of all hospital administrators. Part One summerizes data relating to the primary hospital functions in various Ohio hospitals and Part Two discusses the present status of Ohio hospital libraries. (CC)
