Good question, Shirley...

Last time we had JCAHO coming we did a mock survey first, and the mock
administrator told me I didn't work in the Medical Library, but in the
Resource Center. He insisted that I remember this for when the real visit

When it did, I introduced myself as the medical Librarian from the Resource
Center, and the surveyor looked me straight in the eye and said "This is a
Medical Library, and you don't have to call it anything else" So just what
IS the latest buzzword for our little kingdoms?
