Last year the JPS Health Network Medical Library joined with University of North Texas Health Science Center Library. As the only library network of this type in North Texas, this unique connection allowed staff from both libraries to assess the needs of the hospital library and expand services in a variety of meaningful ways. With new staff and a renovated library space the JPS Health Network Medical Library will cap an exciting year in the summer of 2018. In preparation for this milestone, the Library plans to announce its presence widely to the staff and patients. A standard of accessibility and service will be the hallmark of this new approach to library services. The proposed Opening Day project seeks to utilize funds from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine to generate promotional materials and install technology to ensure easy access to quality health information. The overarching objectives will be accomplished through the use of promotional materials, an opening day event, and the implementation of a library kiosk.
