18.  A Survey of Information Sources Used by Psychiatrists 
To study the information sources of psychiatrists, we sent a questionnaire to 400 randomly selected members of the American Psychiatric Association. Seventy-four percent responded. Journals and books (in that order) were the most important information sources. The average number of journals regularly read was 4.3. An average of 9.1 books had been read during the preceding twelve months. Twenty-eight percent of books were obtained through a library. Sixty-nine percent of the respondents use a medical library at least monthly. Important differences were found by type of practice. For example, academicians reported reading almost 19 books the preceding year; private practitioners, 6.4. We conclude that a major aim in the postgraduate education of psychiatrists should be instruction in the use of all information services. In addition, abstracts and an authoritative annual review should help psychiatrists keep up in areas outside their special interest.

19.  Library Weeds 
Weeding is essential to the efficient operation of medical libraries and should be conducted in spite of certain barriers that exist. The mechanics of weeding are simple, and the criteria are widely known. A questionnaire survey of ninety-four medical school libraries reveals that weeding is most often shared by professional staff members, that weeding is done primarily when space is needed, and that librarians when weeding do not as a rule seek the advice or assistance of users or the Library Committee.

21.  The Delivery of Medical Information in the 1970s * 
Some of the effects of changes in medicine and in economic situations in general on the provision of medical information are discussed. These effects are correlated with conflicts between the demands of different classes of users of this information and with levels of service due to changes in the characteristics of people entering the field of medical librarianship.

22.  A Survey of Organizational Practices in North Carolina Schools of Nursing Libraries * 
Prompted by the apparent unavailability of published information regarding the cataloging practices in North Carolina schools of nursing libraries, this study was conducted using a questionnaire sent to the thirty-eight schools of nursing in the state.
The “average” North Carolina school of nursing library is an autonomous facility administered by nonprofessional personnel or by a person with an undergraduate degree in a nonlibrary field. The materials are organized by the National Library of Medicine Classification and Medical Subject Headings in combination with the Library of Congress classification and subject headings, except for bound journals which are shelved alphabetically by exact title.
It is recommended that separate school of nursing and hospital or medical school libraries be consolidated under a trained librarian in order to standardize and unify cataloging practices on the local level and to gain the advantages available through regional and national cooperation of health sciences libraries.

An attempt is made to define excellence and then to apply that definition to some of the problems facing medical librarianship today.
