Abstract

In 1984, the University of Maryland Campus for the Professions launched a major initiative under the National Library of Medicine's Integrated Academic Information Management System (IAIMS) program. A strategic plan was developed, describing the organizational and technological changes required to create an information environment for the campus. Alternatives were offered for computing and communications hardware and software; subsequent iterations of the strategic plan update these options. Organizationally, changes included elevating information resources management to a policy-level concern for the deans and other senior administrative officers, and strengthening the partnership between the Health Sciences Library (HSL) and the Information Resources Management Division (IRMD) as core facilities. In all three iterations to date, training and consultation were assigned a critical role; the most recent version folds this role into the informatics initiative undertaken by the campus.
