 profiles of success

Throughout the project we will be identifying and profiling librarians from around the country who have addressed different challenges such as finding funding for their health information centers, operating them on a small budget, reaching out to diverse consumer agooudiences, developing a promotional campaign, etc. These profiles should provide a wealth of ideas to librarians and will be updated and increased in number as we gather more information and success stories.
