National Library of Medicine Training Grant Program 1965-1971.

In general, the program has made a significant impact on the field of biomedical librarianship and information sciences. The majority of employees now entering the field are products of these programs and are attaining high levels of professionalism. Their specialized training has provided new and improved skills. Presently there does not appear to be a crisis of manpower at the predoctoral level; however, there is a need for individuals trained at the doctoral level. Programs for continuing education at all levels should receive high priority. It appears that both the master's and the internship programs are equally providing personnel and should be continued. Among other recommendations, the report suggests that a study be undertaken to define and describe all training programs for biomedical librarians and informational scientists provided by the federal government, state and local governments, and other institutions and facilities.
