Report of NN/LM Hospital Internet Access Task Force

Last year, the National Network of Libraries of Medicine formed the NN/LM Hospital Internet Access Task Force to address how the network and the National Library of Medicine could assist hospital libraries in working effectively with their hospital IT departments. The Task Force was chaired by Roth Holst, Associate Director of the NN/LM Greater Midwest Region. Representing the NN/LM Pacific Northwest Region were Susan Barnes, Acting Assistant Director of the Outreach Evaluation Resource Center and Cathy Burroughs, Acting Associate Director, NN/LM Pacific Northwest Region. They were charged with identifying current barriers and problems that inhibit easy access to Internet-based information within the hospital environment and worked to identify promising strategies for ensuring easy access while maintaining appropriate security and privacy protections. The final report of the Task Force is now available and can be found at
