John Weed and Dana Whitmire recently won a grant through the South Central Academic Medical Libraries Consortium (SCAMeL). The grant enables librarians within the region to visit other health science center libraries and familiarize themselves with operations similar to their own. John and Dana joined the Library Exchange Program with Joanne Romano and Terrie Smalls-Hall from the Texas Medical Center (TMC) Library.

The goals for the visit were to learn about TMC’s organizational structure, their State of the Collection presentation and how they developed it, deselection and sending of items to the Joint Library Facility in Bryan, Texas, their Historical Research Center, their institutional repository, and liaison program.
