Establishing a Learning Resource Center in a Medical Library. Case Study 2.
Hunter, George H.
In 1968, a project was undertaken to establish an audiovisual learning resource center within the Dana Medical Library at the University of Vermont. Measures were pursued to increase faculty and student involvement, to expand collections, to organize collections by subject headings, and to formally establish the Office of Instructional Resources. The program became regionally significant when local Vermont and New Hampshire hospitals were outfitted with audiovisual equipment and began to share the software collections of the Dana center. Though restricted by budget, staff, and space constraints, the services provided continued to expand, and plans were made to reach out to audiovisual users in other fields of health science in the future.
