Letter from the President
It is while I am on my flight back from the USA to Milan that I am writing you this letter. My stay was very short, but it offered me the possibility of participating in a meeting of the medical information managers of many companies affiliated to mine. Altogether 18 people participated from different European countries and also Canada, USA, Mexico and Australia. The topic of the meeting was: what are we doing and how can we do it better. It is interesting to note, that not only state hospital and university libraries have tended to form consortias, but also pharmaceutical companies, at least the big ones, have attempted to find methods of co-operation.
