Results – 2012 Survey for Hospital Library eResources Group Purchasing & Licensing

Dear MACMLA-L Colleagues,

This is an update on the results of the 2012 Survey for Hospital Library eResources Group Purchasing & Licensing. Thanks to everyone who participated in the survey. The de-identified data for the ten survey questions is listed in the MACMLA-L listserv archive.

Any interested hospital librarians are invited to attend the inaugural Catholic Hospital Librarian Summit March 18-20, 2013 in Marriottsville, Maryland. There’s still time to register for the Summit at I hope to see you there!

But that’s not all! Please join the community site for this consortium project at if you are interested in collaborating on this potential hospital library group purchasing and licensing consortium. Please register to join (click the “Join Group” green button) and then you will receive a confirmation message soon afterwards. The full report for the 2012 Survey with graphs and comments is available on the community site, and is a far better presentation of the survey data than the text version here in this email.

“This project has been funded in whole or in part with Federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract No. HHS-N-276-2011-00004-C with the University of Maryland Baltimore.”
