Now, Next, Beyond COVID-19 – Health Librarians Experiences

Primary tabs

The COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting public health crisis have had a significant impact on health libraries and the work of health information professionals. These challenging times have created opportunities for innovation, multi-disciplinary collaboration and the re-alignment of the skills of health librarians to new contexts. It has challenged the way we work and connect with our clients and each other. Undoubtedly some innovations and changes will become more permanent.

What does lie ahead?
