1.  Feasibility and marketing studies of health sciences librarianship education programs. 
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill evaluated five curricular models designed to improve education for health sciences librarianship. Three of the models enhanced existing degree and certificate programs, and two were new programs for working information professionals. Models were developed with input from experts and a Delphi study; the marketability of the models was tested through surveys of potential students and employers; and recommendations were made as a guide to implementation. The results demonstrated a demand for more specialized curricula and for retraining opportunities. Marketing data showed a strong interest from potential students in a specialized master's degree, and mid-career professionals indicated an interest in postmaster's programs that provided the ability to maintain employment. The study pointed to the opportunity for a center of excellence in health sciences information education to enable health sciences librarians to respond to their evolving roles.

3.  Preparing tomorrow's health sciences librarians: feasibility and marketing studies. 
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is devising and evaluating five curricular models designed to improve education for health sciences librarianship. These models fit into a continual learning process from the initial professional preparation to lifelong learning opportunities. Three of them enhance existing degree and certificate programs in the School of Information and Library Science (SILS) with a health sciences specialization, and two are new programs for working information professionals. The approaches involve partnerships among SILS, the Health Sciences Library, and the program in Medical Informatics. The planning process will study the feasibility of the proposed programs, test the marketability of the models to potential students and employers, and make recommendations about implementation.

4.  Moving the collections of an academic health sciences library. 
Expansion of the physical facilities of the Health Sciences Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill necessitated relocating the entire journal and book collections within the library. This paper discusses the problems involved in planning such a move, the gathering and analysis of relevant data, the formulation of an overall plan based on the data analysis, and the actual move. The use of specially-written computer programs greatly aided in the move's planning and execution and also yielded quantitative data describing the characteristics of an academic health sciences collection.
