About:

     Paul Wermager is the head of the Science and Technology Reference Department at UH Library. He has a broad background in the health care field, having worked as a Registered Pharmacist and an intensive care Registered Nurse for many years before becoming a librarian. He is currently working on a chapter dealing with health in Hawaii to be published by the University of Hawaii Press next year.


POI Grant:

     The National Library of Medicine's Internet Access to Digital Libraries Grant funded the POI (Pathways to Online Information) Project for $132,500. The purpose of POI is to provide a single web-accessible portal by which biomedical researchers, students, faculty, and practitioners can search the relevant digital resources available from the two organizations with major biomedical holdings in the State: University of Hawaii at Manoa Library (UHM Library) and Hawaii Medical Library (HML). Currently, patrons have great difficulty in knowing what digital resources are available to them, and from where.

     A broad state-wide consortium of organizations has been created to provide for publicity of the product, link-sharing, web accessibility, and training of users. The broader consortium includes the core partnership (UHM Library, HML and JABSOM), large and small community-based health systems, nursing and public health organizations. This project will impact biomedical research and health care throughout the State of Hawaii, including rural, multiethnic and underserved communities.
