Medical Information Services Program (MISP)

The New York State Medical Information Services Program (MISP) is designed to assist libraries of all types in helping New York residents obtain the medical information they need by subsidizing document delivery.

For Librarians:
When a patron requests medical or healthcare information resources (journal articles, reports, etc.) that are not available locally, but identified in PubMed or other databases, MISP subsidizes the document delivery fees charged by libraries in the National Network of Libraries of Medicine. Requests should be related to patient care, consumer health, research in medicine, or the education of health practitioners.
MISP comes into play when you need to go beyond the usual local or system borrowing arrangements. There are no fees for the library or the patron. All categories of users qualify: students, health care consumers, health care professionals, and researchers.

Procedures for using MISP:

  • Use the SENYLRC ILL referral form
  • Refer your request to your own public or school library system
  • Use the OCLC ILL system to refer to NN/LM document delivery providers.
  • Sign up for Loansome Doc through PubMed with SENYRLC as your ordering library.

For more information or questions, please contact Judy Fischetti.
