Hospital Library at SVHC Receives Go-Ahead
Gary Strubel, the hospital librarian at Southwestern Vermont Health Care (SVHC) in Bennington, VT, has recently received the “seal of approval” from SVHC’s Executive Management Team to go ahead with transitioning the hospital library function to a Knowledge Services Department. Gary will spend the next several months working out details with Operations and Human Resources.
As part of the NER’s 5-year Strategic KM Initiative, Gary’s effort represents one of several KM pilot projects in the region, and the only project that has proceeded without NER funding.
The expectation from the pilot projects is that in the near future several notable KM transitioning “models” will emerge.
