Task Force on the Health Sciences: Charge

The recently integrated health sciences libraries comprising the former UMDNJ joined the Rutgers University Libraries in July 2013 posing an opportunity to examine how the combined collections, services and technologies currently serve the new cohort of biomedical and health sciences faculty, students and staff. The committee will include a review of services provided by the former UMDNJ libraries, as well as those currently provided to the health sciences by RUL. Particular attention to the constituents currently included as part of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences that were not part of legacy UMDNJ will be a focus (School of Pharmacy, College of Nursing and Institute for Health Care Policy and Aging Research). With the addition of the new health sciences schools (2 medical schools, graduate school of biomedical science, dental school, schools of health professions, nursing and public health), a report on the current status of library services to these users will be written with recommendations on aligning current and recommending new, or modified areas for improving services, collections and technologies to best support the growing health and life sciences emphasis for the Rutgers University Libraries and its users.
