About HSLG

Health Sciences Libraries Group (HSLG)

The Health Sciences Libraries Group, of the Library Association of Ireland, is committed to empowering all our members to excellence in the field of information management, and by doing so advancing health for all.

The HSLG Committee is elected by members of the group at our annual general meeting. The Committee represent the interests of members by organising events and other continuing professional development opportunities; making financial decisions and maintaining an account of funds; by providing forums for discussion and exchange of ideas, including our newsletter HINT, email discussion list and website; and, by promoting the interests of health librarians and information specialists.

Our goals are to:

  • network, collaborate and share knowledge
  • provide opportunities for members to engage in continuing professional development
  • develop and support an evidence-based approach to professional practice
  • promote and advocate for our profession

Membership of the group is open to all members of the Library Association of Ireland.
