Description/Abstract

Library accreditation processes examine the qualitative and quantitative outputs of library services. Through the use of a structured framework and process, an assessment can be derived of service performance and 'fitness or purpose'. The process of UK health care library accreditation is an evolving process that can be mapped back to the 1970s and has been informed by contributions from US, Canadian and Australian health care library accreditation practice.
