The strategic vision for information services at the University of Maryland at Baltimore incorporates the integration concept advocated by the National Library of Medicine. Computing, library, and telecommunications services report to a single vice president; services are being redesigned for optimal functionality. Recent accomplishments include transmitting radiographic images between the campus network and the Johns Hopkins and televising interactive grand rounds—other projects also target networking visual information. A new Health Sciences Library/Information Services Building, scheduled to open in 1997, will house the “infostructure” for “the virtual library.” © 1994 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
