EFTS Award- New York Methodist Hospital

1. Interlibrary borrowing is the most widely recognized library service by our hospital staff. We have only to get one or two articles for someone in need, and he or she is our library friend for life. 2. We do not charge any of our users for this service. The annual budget for the library must cover the entire expense. While the number of loans remains fairly steady, the library budget for non professional expenses was cut in 2006 and again in 2007. Even with an extensive free share policy, our pool of money to pay for ILL loans has diminished.
