Health Sciences Interest Group in ACRL

Notes from the MLA Board Meeting (September 17)
(excerpted from a report by Judy Burnham, Section Council Chair)
Health sciences librarians have started a Health Sciences Interest Group
(HSIG) in the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL)
division of the American Library Association (ALA). The group has asked
that there be liaisons between MLA and the ACRL/HSIG. The Board approved
that the MLA Board of Directors establish an allied representative
position to liaise with the Association of College and Research
Libraries Health Sciences Interest Group, effective immediately. Judy
Burnham, Section Council Chair recommended that a member of NAHRS be
appointed to this position since NAHRS is often the MLA home of those
librarians at academic libraries that support health science programs.
