Mayeda, Tadashi A.
The information in this document was gathered to aid analysts and designers of the proposed Biomedical Communications Network (BCN) of the National Library of Medicine. The current capabilities and facilities of medical schools in areas of activity impinging on the concept and role of BCN are summarized. Medical schools are listed geographically by state. Information provided for each school includes types of financial support, enrollment, number of medical schools in the state, clinical facilities, size of medical library, personnel, statwide statistics on population and hospital facilities, common carrier services, and community action programs. The common carrier services are the potential links between the medical school and other institutions. Community action programs are defined here as those extramural library, specialized information, specialized education, and audio and audiovisual offerings to the non-academic members of that institution. Indexes to the schools, personnel, and programs are included. (JY)
