Having been successful in my election onto the HSLG Committee at the AGM in June 2018, I was shortly to attend my first HSLG committee meeting. It was proposed that I would be the new treasurer and my experience to date has been positive and informative. I remain impressed by the efficiency of the HSLG committee in organising and delivering highly relevant CPD events. I am pleased to see how accessible these events are to Health Science Libraries staff through online booking and subsidised attendance fees.
Membership on this committee has been an opportunity to develop and demonstrate
many competencies such as teamwork, communication skills, budgeting and event
management. What I enjoy most is the support from the other committee members. My
“committee anxiety”, not dissimilar to “library anxiety”, was unfounded. The
readiness to value my contributions (even if sometimes a bit sketchy) has
increased my confidence in putting forward proposals. If you are an ‘ideas’
person or would like to work on a committee where your contribution is valued
and your input appreciated, then I cannot recommend the HSLG Committee highly

HEAR (Health Evidence Awareness report) is a newsletter designed to signpost information about specific health topics. HEAR is the result of a collaboration between librarians in a number of hospitals and health care settings across Ireland. This newsletter has useful information for both clinicians and patients. It contains information for patients, families and carers with links to support groups & organisations, books, multimedia and patient education. It also contains links to latest systematic reviews and Irish research in this topic.
Cystic fibrosis affects the internal organs, especially the lungs and digestive system. It causes them to become clogged with thick, sticky mucus. It is caused by a faulty gene that controls the movement of salt and water in and out of cells in the body. When cystic fibrosis occurs, too much salt and not enough water pass into the cells and turn the body’s secretions, which normally act as a lubricant, into a thick mucus. This mucus clogs up many of the body’s tubes, ducts and passageways so they cannot work properly. In the lungs, this leads to frequent and severe infections.
