The Grace and Harold Sewell Memorial Fund plans to initiate one and possibly two, paid, 12-month, Learning Partnerships placing experienced librarians within leading health care organizations for the purpose of both partners gaining a greater understanding of how best information sciences can be effectively applied in each environment.
