Innovations, Challenges & Opportunities within Regional Health Libraries in British Columbia

Dear HLABC Members,

On behalf of Elisheba Muturi, Chantalle Jack and Shannon Long, please see the final report of the research they developed looking into the regional health libraries (Health Authority and Ministry Libraries), “Innovations, Challenges & Opportunities within Regional Health Libraries in British Columbia.”

The report contains their brief nine page summary as well as multiple appendices: research consent and collection instruments, research results, focus group summary and conference presentations. Their research team received continual support from HLABC including funds that helped pay for the focus group held in December 2016. They presented results of the study at various stages to HLABC in 2016, the joint MLA/CHLA/ICLC conference in 2016 (poster), and at the CHLA/ABSC conference in 2017.
