Hospital Library Administration.
The objectives of a hospital are to improve patient care, while the objectives of a hospital library are to improve services to the staff which will support their efforts. This handbook dealing with hospital administration is designed to aid the librarian in either implementing a hospital library, or improving services in an existing medical library. The librarian's tasks are identified and discussed under two major categories: (1) planning, which involves organizing, financing, and budgeting for library services; and (2) control, which includes the development of annual reports, policies and procedures, and coordination and leadership. A glossary of library terms, a checklist of patient care standards, and hospital library standards are appended. (AP)
