Welcome to Health and Science library Camp (HASlibcamp)

#HASlibcamp is a one day unconference for people interested in health and science libraries.

It’s an exciting time for health and science libraries. Librarians are embracing new opportunities and developing skills in research and data management, critical appraisal, open science and open access publishing.

But just like other libraries, there are challenges: satisfying increasing demand with a decreasing budget; demonstrating impact in the electronic age; justifying the library’s existence; finding time (and the training budget) to learn new skills.

HASlibcamp is an opportunity for you to discuss these issues.

Who is it for?

#HASlibcamp is a conversation for everyone and anyone interested in health and science libraries, this includes: academic, public, NHS, non-NHS, small specialist libraries, library students, or anyone who is keen to learn about health and science libraries.
