Madge Boldt, Systems Librarian at Rhode Island Hospital, has been awarded the Jay Daly Technology Grant to support the purchase of a Kwikboost Charging station for patron use.  According to Madge:

“At the Peters Health Sciences Library at Rhode Island Hospital, we converted the majority of our print journal subscriptions to online access this year. In addition, we are now focusing on e-books and only purchasing print by request. The Jay Daly Technology Grant will allow us to offer the use of a Kwikboost Charging Station to our patrons. The wall-mounted station will have four Apple cables (two of each type), three micro-USB cables, and one mini-USB cable, and will quickly charge iPhones, iPads, and other tablets and smart phones. We plan to publicize this service throughout the hospital in order to promote our new focus on online resources and to increase usage of the library’s physical space.”

Congratulations Madge!

About the Jay Daly Technology Grant

The Jay Daly Technology Grant was established by NAHSL in 2011 in honor of Jay Daly.   Jay, a long-time NAHSL member, was a hospital librarian, technology innovator and the inventor of QuickDoc (an ILL management application). The grant was created to assist NAHSL members in acquiring and implementing new technologies and to foster innovation in health sciences libraries.  Grant recipients are required to share their experiences to promote professional knowledge among NAHSL members.

Best regards,

Nathan Norris & Lisa Adriani
