IAIMS and the library at the University of Utah
The formal creation of an Integrated Academic Information Management System (IAIMS) at the University of Utah began in the fall of 1983. The keystone of the IAIMS effort is the HELP hospital information system. IAIMS at the University of Utah is a broad-based program extending across the Health Sciences Center and beyond to health professionals throughout the intermountain area. This paper describes the background that led to IAIMS, the IAIMS planning process, and the library's participation in this effort.
