Program Description

The AAPM/IOMP library program serves as a resource for medical physics and related communities in developing countries. The library program accepts book and e-journal donations and forwards them to established libraries on a per-request basis.

As of November 2014, current participation in the program involves 36 libraries located in 27 countries in 5 continents. To submit an application for the establishment of a new library, please complete this form.

The AAPM portion of the library program is administered by the International Library Subcommittee (ILSC), a subset of the International Affairs Committee (IAC).

Current ILSC chair and library curator: Allan Wilkinson, PhD

Make a Donation

The AAPM/IOMP library program relies on donations of books and e-journal subscriptions. Interested donors can contact (Allan Wilkinson, PhD, Curator)

Hardcopy books stay with the donor until a request is made. The library will then contact the donor to arrange for shipping to the recipient.

Subscription donations of the Medical Physics journal can be made in the annual AAPM membership renewal form.

Past Donations

The AAPM/IOMP library program would like to acknowledge the generous contributions of donors.
