Subcontract: Outreach in the Last Frontier OY2

The Alaska Medical Library of the University of Alaska Anchorage seeks to improve the quality of life and health for the citizens of the state by providing information outreach services to the health professional workforce across the state, especially in frontier and rural areas of Alaska. Connecting key individuals in rural hospitals to good library access may help to overcome the sense of isolation that exists among practitioners in remote areas and encourage them to continue to live and work in underserved areas. Providing them with access to the best evidence and patient information will assist them to provide quality care even though they are distant from the nearest source of tertiary care.
