Health Libraries Australia (HLA) is the national professional organisation representing librarians and information professionals working in all health sectors including: hospitals and other clinical facilities, research institutes, regulatory agencies, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, government departments, regional health services, professional colleges, universities, cooperative research centres, not-for-profit and community organisations, and parts of public library services. The vision of Health Libraries Australia is that all Australians benefit from health library and information professionals’ expertise that is integral to evidence based health care.
Who are Health Librarians
Health Librarians are health information professionals who focus on the services and systems that deliver research-derived data, information and knowledge to healthcare clinicians, managers, policy-makers, educators and researchers. They contribute to the development of knowledge through research services, from reference consultations and literature searching to advanced forms of evidence synthesis. They manage the research knowledge base published in all formats, as well as grey literature. Their responsibilities extend to advancing the application of evidence-based practice through health literacy and teaching, knowledge management and translation services, facilitating the links between clinical decision-making, policy/guideline/protocol development, and health research, i.e. translating evidence into practice. Health librarians are responsible for the delivery of services that are the only dedicated, secure, permanent and trustworthy source of authoritative information, critical and fundamental to an organisation’s information governance structures.
