Benchmarking Study of Hospital Libraries

Benchmarking Study of Hospital Libraries

Join NNLM Kernel of Knowledge as we discuss a recent survey to assess the current landscape of hospital libraries by collecting benchmarking data from hospital librarians in the U.S. and other countries. Since the last MLA benchmarking survey in 2002 hospital libraries have faced significant changes including downsizing, position and library elimination, and hospital mergers. The results suggest implications for hospital librarians regarding staffing levels and the depth of services within their unique settings, especially within the context of rapidly expanding health systems. This survey discussion will provide information to inform the development and implementation of effective advocacy for hospital libraries.
