Library Programs

The IOMP/AAPM library program currently serves 43 developing nations through the maintenance of 75 active libraries.  There were two new libraries established in the past year. They are in Hefei, China, and Kyiv, Ukraine.  Another new library application is pending (Colombia).  All active libraries receive a free copy of the SRP quarterly journals.  For 2010, 93 members of the AAPM have donated their Medical Physics subscriptions to the library program.  The journals will be sent to the following countries:  Argentina, Brazil, Brunei Darussalam, Bulgaria, china, Colombia, Costa Rica, Egypt, Hungary, India, Iran, morocco, Myanmar, Namibia, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russian Federation, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Thailand, Turkey, and Ukraine.  We have also had a private donation of journals to Costa Rica with one pending for Colombia.

In spring 2010, all members in the active library list were contacted by email. For those without response, a second email was sent.  Approximately one-quarter of those queried have now responded.  Plans are ongoing to increase the visibility of the library program on the IOMP and AAPM websites so that information regarding “missing” libraries might be forthcoming and new libraries encouraged to form.

Finally, if you have appropriate textbooks (not just the newest edition), please consider donating them to this program. For information please contact  for Allan Wilkinson, PhD, Curator.
