iSchool Students Collect Medical Texts for Afghanistan

Members of SLAPSG (Special Libraries Association Pittsburgh Student Group) will be sending over 70 medical textbooks to U.S. troops in Afghanistan for Operation Medical Libraries (OML). The group, comprised of MLIS students at the iSchool, has been collecting donated textbooks from the medical community here at Pitt during the Spring 2011 semester. The donated books will be sent to the U.S. military organization, which will then dispense the much-needed medical literature to hospitals and other health centers in Afghanistan. For more information about this worthwhile project, please visit this web page.
