Selective Libraries for Medical Schools in Less-Developed Countries. Working Papers of a Conference (Bellagio, Italy, October 3 to November 3, 1979).
Saracevic, Tefko, Ed.
The third in a series of international conferences on the problems of coping with the information explosion in the biomedical literature, this conference was held to explore certain aspects of the small core libraries recommended at previous meetings. Such libraries would be set up in developing countries and contain highly selective materials relevant to the information needs of each country. The 15 papers in this collection are grouped as: (1) the historical background of the connection between medical education and libraries; (2) the current state of medical school libraries in developing countries and the problems they face; (3) methods and technologies appropriate for selectivity in libraries; (4) global networks and other information services in support of health science libraries; (5) the education and training of medical librarians; and (6) the suggestions of participants for a project (or projects) for the establishment of selective libraries in a number of medical and other health science schools in developing countries. A brief introduction and a list of the participants are included. (LMM)
