Relationships of Biomedical Information Services. Final Report.
Cruzat, Gwendolyn S.
This final report summarizes a study of the availability of library services for health professionals in Southeastern Michigan, begun in 1964 by the Wayne State University Medical Library, the Detroit Medical Library Group, the Wayne County Medical Society, and the Greater Detroit Hospital Community Council. Objectives of this investigation were to determine: (1) what groups of biomedical professionals had library service, and the extent of that service, (2) cost of minimal access service on a community basis, and (3) administrative mechanisms to improve and develop library networks. Study data were obtained from the institutions of the Detroit Medical Library Group by observation, interviews, and questionnaires. These data covered: (1) interlibrary loans, (2) reference services, (3) bibliographic controls and administrative mechanisms, and (4) the biomedical community. The resulting studies primarily described the existing situations. Specific methodologies and conclusions on the basic areas covered are summarized in this report, and the four major contributions of this project are discussed. Reports of the separate studies are ED 032 890, ED 032 891, ED 032 892, LI 001 829, LI 001 830, LI 001 831, LI 001 832, LI 001 833, and LI 001 838. (JB)
