Health Science Librarians of Illinois

Abbreviation: 
HSLI

HSLI sponsors and supports activities which promote and develop health science library services in Illinois. Our members promote health literacy by providing reputable health related resources to Illinois health care providers and consumers through resource sharing of library collections through interlibrary loan, training in selection of and access to health related resources, and collaborative reference initiatives to respond to provider and consumer health questions.

HSLI encourages the continuing education of its membership by sponsoring appropriate education programs. We encourage dialogue among our members and promote cooperation among libraries in Illinois by strengthening cooperative relationships with academic, public, and special libraries, and with organizations which establish and promote multi-type library cooperation activities. HSLI provides a mechanism for interaction with, and communication to and from, the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Greater Midwest Region, the Midwest Chapter/MLA, and the Illinois State Library.

HSLI is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization.

Meetings: 

The annual meeting serves as the primary statewide organization meeting the needs of all Information Professionals who focus on the area of Health and Medical Science. Information professionals working in all types of libraries are invited to attend.
