Pings, Vern M.
The Regional Medical Library (RML) is a federal program created to aid in the equalization of access to information for the health professionals of the nation. The purpose of this paper is to relate the sequence of events in the establishment of the Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan Regional Medical Library (KOMRML) and how they influence the present program. This paper is to serve as a basis for judging the adequacy of the planning for KOMRML, as well as a basis for evaluating the quality of the program at some future date. KOMRML is an administrative agency formed by an agreement among 10 academic institutions, Wayne State University, Michigan State University, University of Detroit, University of Michigan, Cleveland Health Sciences Library, Medical College of Ohio at Toledo, Ohio State University, University of Cincinnati, University of Louisville, and University of Kentucky. The events and decisions are summarized into three areas: (1) the organizational developments, that is, the interinstitutional meetings and the action resulting from these meetings; (2) the factors involved in making the decisions to produce the proposed program of KOMRML; and (3) the organizational structure and procedures that have been adopted to make KOMRML operational.
