INFORMATION MANAGEMENT PLANS NEEDED
 
Once again, the compilers of a new MLA DocKit invite your submissions for
Information Management Plans: A Collection.  This call was originally
made in the spring of 1996, and we are still accepting submissions.  The
compilers, Kay Wellik and Mary Jarvis, are seeking information management
plans for inclusion in an MLA DocKit which will aid hospital librarians
in the formulation of plans in fulmillment of the current JCAHO
requirements.  We are looking for hospital-wide information management
plans, library information management plans, and any survey/evaluation
instruments used in formulating these plans.
 
MLA DocKits are collections of representative, unedited library documents
that illustrate the range of approaches to health sciences library
management topics.  Expert compilers add introductory information and a
brief analysis of the documents contained in the kit.  To comply with
MLA's guidelines for DocKit production, submissions should be
        "clean" copies, with very clear type;
        printed single sided if possible;
        bordered by 1" margins adequate for three-hole punching or
                binding;
        printed on white paper with black ink; and
        on 8 1/2"-by-11" paper.
 
Submission of an informtion management plan implies that your
organization grants permission to have it reprinted.  Please indicate
whether your institution's name should remain on the documents or whether
all identification should be "crossed out" so that it is not visible.
Also, list the name of a contact person in case there are questions about
the document.
 
The compilers look forward to producing a timely and useful DocKit that
will be of practical value to hospital librarians involved in formulating
information management plans, either for the library itself or as part of
the institution's plan, and they thank you for your assistance.  The
deadline for submissions is October 31, 1996.  Please submit information
plans to:  Mary Jarvis, Methodist Hospital, Medical Library,
3615 19th St., Lubbock, Texas  79410.  For more information contact
