Description/Abstract

The Checklist is designed to be used in assessing a wide range of health library and information services including NHS libraries,
academic health libraries serving NHS communities, consumer health information services and information services serving the
pharmaceutical industry. It can also be used to evaluate library and information services in voluntary organisations, local
authorities, professional and regulatory bodies and research units. The generic Checklist document focuses on the components
that every library and information service should have to support their clients in the health sector, particularly in connection with
evidence-based decision-making and life-long learning. In the NHS environment, Strategic Health Authorities (SHAs)/Workforce
Development Confederations (WDCs) in England have a crucial role to play as commissioners of library service alongside their
strategic development role, and so should find it especially valuable.
