The project will promote the opening of the new library space would build on the momentum already generated this year and extend the reach of library service to team members not currently aware of its benefits. An additional emphasis on promoting free resources from the National Library of Medicine during the opening day event will further give team members tools to support their patients and thus improve health outcomes across the institution. A proposed library kiosk would serve as a portal to services otherwise not present without library staff, to ensure access to quality health information beyond the regular operating hours of the library. This user friendly kiosk would expand professional knowledge by leveraging technology to capture reference questions, facilitate access to the library catalog, and provide a curated list of quality health information. With the implementation of all these elements, the Opening Day project will increase and diversify traffic to the physical library space, improve service outside of operating hours, and promote awareness of freely available National Library of Medicine resources to improve patient care.
