TI Award: Electronic Document Delivery for Public Health & School Health Professionals in Minnesota
Technology Improvement Award: The RN Barr Library at the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) will improve electronic access to the library for their clients. Library staff will install and implement Ariel to improve services and expand participation in interlibrary loan networks. The library will also convert its current awareness newsletter to an electronic format. The principle goal of this project is to provide quick, efficient electronic services to public health professionals throughout the state of Minnesota. The secondary goal of this project is to enhance the RN Barr Library's participation in interlibrary loan networks. By using Ariel, the library staff will increase sharing of unique resources with other libraries in the region and across the United States by receiving and filling requests electronically.
