Abstract

Libraries play a vital role in meeting the information needs of health professionals. With revolutionary changes taking place in information collection and processing, librarians are faced with an almost permanent challenge. This report describes how a technologically sophisticated library system - radically transformed in concept from custodian to active partner in the management of biomedical information - can play a new role in maintaining the preeminence of American medicine. The recommendations of the report are addressed to academic health science centers, professional associations and societies and to public and private agencies. The leadership role of each of these in shaping the biomedical information environment of tomorrow is unparalleled.
