This report is a successor to a 1987 report entitled Challenge to Action: Planning and Evaluation Guidelines for Academic Health Sciences Libraries. The 1987 report was focused on the environment and needs of member libraries and was intended as a practical guide and checklist at a time of intense change in technology and the health care environment. The sea changes in technology, most notably the proliferation of the Web, and the ongoing changes in the health care environment that have occurred since the 1987 report prompted this new report and its accompanying Web site highlighting important AHC library successes and suggesting additional roles and strategic collaboration for the 21st century.
