Academic Health Center Libraries Rank High in Nation and State

Cincinnati--The University of Cincinnati (UC) Medical Center Academic Information Technology and Libraries (AIT&L) was first among its 122 United States academic health sciences libraries in number of public computers and in education and training programs. In the 23rd edition, 1999-2000 Annual Statistics of Medical School Libraries in the United States and Canada, UCıs AIT&L was second in the number of electronic journals, with 2,680 journals available in electronic format.

AIT&L was also first among the seven Ohio Medical school libraries in computers, education programs and electronic books and journals, as well as in the amount of support from grants and contracts, and the number of people using the libraries. Nearly a half million people used the UC Medical Center libraries in the year 2000.

Roger Guard, assistant senior vice president, AIT&L and Chief Information Officer at the UC College of Medicine said, "I am pleased that our libraries received such high rankings at both the state and national levels. However, we constantly strive to improve our services and invite our customers to help shape the libraries to best meet their needs."
