Publication Date



This poster presentation is a collaborative effort of librarians from Lamar Soutter Library, University of Massachusetts Medical School; Himmelfarb Health Sciences Library, The George Washington University; and Louis Stokes Health Sciences Library, Howard University. International medicine initiatives often occur through institution specific efforts. Yet information needs extend across borders and institutions. Three American health sciences libraries have united to support the development of health sciences libraries in Liberia. While separate schools will support undergraduate and graduate medical education initiatives, the libraries are working together to bring current information resources to all health care professionals.
