We have presented an expanded vision of how the organizational and technical infrastructure of HIOs (Health Information Organizations) could improve the efficiency and quality of public health reporting, facilitate public health investigation, improve emergency response, and enable public health to communicate information to the clinical community. We note that there are significant worries about the financial viability of some HIOs,[ 53] some notable failures,[ 54-57] and much concern about developing business models for HIO sustainability.[ 58] These issues notwithstanding, there were 193 HIO projects at various stages of development in 48 states, including 42 that were operational at the time of a 2009 survey.[ 6] In addition, new models for health information exchange are being developed to augment regional health information organization efforts, such as the Nationwide Health Information Network Direct Project (available at: http://nhindirect.org).
What the Internet entails and that it is an instructional resource, not a subject in itself, are two main concepts to understand before attempting to integrate the Net into a school’s curriculum.

According to a recent study of Library Science, a common notion of the librarians about their own profession is revealed; which indicates lower self-esteem towards their profession. Most of the librarians believe that, they are not respected as a professional group. It also exposed the curriculum designed to educate new library science students on the history of libraries and librarianship, their connection to society, intellectual freedom, and the future of information dissemination.
