Hospital Libraries: Challenges and Opportunities / December 8, 2015 / noon-1:00pm

Summary: In this session we will discuss the current state of hospital libraries and consider their future in light of the Affordable Care Act, Meaningful Use, and budget cuts. We will especially consider the role the librarian plays and their effect on these changes, as well as ways the library’s resources (including the librarian) can help offset the expenses hospitals are facing.
