Abstract: Medical and health sciences libraries are making a transition from their traditional roots as curatorial collections to a new identity as service providers. Medical librarians are no longer just the gatekeepers for book collections; they are now
becoming managers of digital information and team players in the new information-intensive medical world. This workshop will focus on changes that are affecting medical libraries and librarians and their many clients, as both institutions and individuals come face-toface with the services, materials and technologies that are transforming their professional lives. Examples of best practices will be highlighted.
