Health Science Librarians of Illinois

Serving Illinois Health Information Professionals



our mission

The purpose of HSLI is to promote the professional and educational development of health science librarians in Illinois to enable librarians to provide services and resources to health care providers and consumers.

To achieve this purpose we sponsor and support activities which promote and develop health science library services in Illinois. We 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.

Encourage the continuing education of its membership by sponsoring appropriate education programs. Provide opportunities for dialogue among its membership by providing a forum for the discussion of mutual concerns and common problems of Illinois health science librarians. 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. Provide a mechanism for interaction with, and communication to and from, the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Greater Midwest Region and the Illinois State Library.
