Participation in national and international library and information events is an important way of sharing evidence-based library and information practice, raising the profile of health librarians, and engaging in continuing professional development (CPD). The HSLG Committee will provide funding to support attendance at relevant events subject to meeting eligibility criteria, assessment of application, and the availability of funding. Events may include conferences, forums, courses or other CPD events of relevance to health librarians and information specialists.
