Description

The virtual library concept has been popular and likely well accepted by community hospitals and administrators in recent years. But it was not the case 6 years ago. This article covers the background of how a traditional medical library was transformed into a virtual library, how that transformation impacted the library's collections and services, how the library gets its funding, and how to promote a virtual library. This report is based on the author's personal experience at Silver Cross Hospital, Joliet, Illinois.
