Health libraries return on investment report

On 4 November 2013, ALIA, in conjunction with Health Libraries Inc (HLInc) and Health Libraries Australia (ALIA HLA, a national group of the Australian Library and Information Association), released a study which suggests that hospitals, government departments, associations and other organisations involved in healthcare gain a $9 return for every dollar they invest in health libraries.

Guidelines for Health Libraries (4th Ed)

Although these guidelines were published in 2008 and therefore are due to be updated, they are nevertheless a major publication of HLA and are still useful to consult.

Access the Guidelines for Health Libraries (4th ed).

The document includes a checklist with ACHS EquIP standards that you can undertake for your library.
