Award Report- Western Pennsylvania Hospital- Forbes Regional Campus
The grant monies awarded was used to purchase two new public use computers for our medical library. The computers that the library had previously were over 10 years old and could not handle some of the newer programs that the residents and staff use. It is also anticipated that newer computers will attract more patients and their family members to the library for consumer health information.
The announcement of the grant award will go into the monthly in-house publication “News and Notes” which should help get the word out that the library has updated technology that is free to all hospital employees and visitors. The Forbes Regional Campus library does not have a blog to put this information on.
