Award Report – Going Electric
Holy Name Hospital is currently undergoing a construction project. The Hospital is currently building a new Emergency Room, Conference Center and Library. The new Library will combine both the Bartholomew Medical Library and School of Nursing Library catalogs, and will be open to the public. Prior to moving the Library, we are automating the Library’s technical operations: cataloging; circulation; serials control using an integrated Library system. Each of these operations is currently done manually. Automation of the card catalog will allow for patrons to access our catalog from any PC and will allow for easier and less labor-intensive updating. Automation of the circulation processes will allow for better tracking of circulated items, for improved report generation and for tracking of utilization patterns that will help in acquisitions. A serials component will facilitate the checking in and claiming of journal subscriptions, indexing journal articles and linking to them, as well as hopefully tracking interlibrary loans.
