Catalyst event – How do we ensure the future of health libraries

NHS R&D North West worked in collaboration with Health Libraries North to bring together a catalyst event around ‘How do we ensure the future of health libraries’

The purpose of this event was to enable the healthcare library community to come together and explore how they can create an evidence base for library and knowledge services and how they can ensure the future of health care libraries.

The event was designed to help:-

  • Identify research questions of importance to researchers, clinicians, policy makers, commissioners and service providers and patients and the public.
  • Create new, exciting and innovative collaborations to develop health care libraries research funding.
  • Improve links between the NHS and other organisations to facilitate research and support changes in practice.
  • Give colleagues an idea of strengths and potential gaps in the evidence base for health library research.
