Medical Information Services Program
CDLC's Medical Information Services Program (MISP) is part of a state-wide program funded by New York State to provide New York State residents with improved access to current, up-to-date medical information. This includes both healthcare consumers and the clinicians who will provide their healthcare.
In the Capital District Library Council's area of service this program funds interlibrary loans and library staff medical information education and training. The interlibrary loan aspect provides access to medical information from sources not owned by a requesting institution or library. The education and training opportunities give library staff the tools and knowledge they need to find and obtain this information.
Interlibrary loan allotments are determined for each institution by their past medically related interlibrary loan use. Education and training sessions funded by the Medical Information Services Program are open to all CDLC program members.
