GUIDELINES FOR HEALTH LIBRARIES
The fourth edition of Guidelines for Australian Health Libraries is now available. It is endorsed by the Australian Library and Information Association. The guidelines are divided into Planning and Strategy, Organisation and Philosophy, Resources Management, and Information Service Provision and include evidence-based staffing levels. They cover all types of health libraries, not just those in hospitals. At this site are also links to two checklists for self-assessment.
