Many of the Hospital Libraries in Wisconsin (some of them WHSLA Members) participated in this study.
Now we can see how we stack up with 180 other hospital libraries who responded to the 2017 survey. The 19-page report contains multiple graphs and charts in a visual display of the survey data, along with a narrative explanation of the current state of Hospital Libraries.
Take a look!
