Title: The Changing Role of the Library in Support of Medical Education, 1981
Occasion: Presented to the Joint Meeting of the Council of Deans and the Society of Medical College Directors of Continuing Medical Education, Association of American Medical Colleges.
MMC Commentary: This address attempted to show how the National Library of Medicine was responding to an important report issued by the AAMC dealing with the use of the library for the support of medical education. I attempted to identify the new library programs that dealt exclusively with the support of medical education, including the use of satellites to assist the University of Washington School of Medicine in its programs in Alaska, and the use of MEDLINE as a ready resource for education of students and practitioners. There is a brief description of all of the research activities at the Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications that had relevance to medical education. NLM had relationships through the staff of the AAMC including its Director Dr. John A. D. Cooper, who was responsible in part for the support of a monograph written by Director Cooper and Nina Matheson dealing with the subject of libraries and medical education.
