Irish Health Librarians' Contribution to Research

Another excellent initiative from both the HSLG & Lenus (via the HSLG mailing list):
"To promote and preserve the growing body of research by Health Librarians in Ireland, Lenus and the HSLG are putting out a call for research to all health librarians.
A new ‘LIS’ collection will be hosted on Lenus. This collection will enhance the research profile of Health Science librarians within the context of Irish and global health research via the World Wide Science Alliance portal. This collection will provide abstracts and fulltext where possible. It will complement the current HSLG list of Irish Health Librarians Contribution to Research and have the additional benefit of being fulltext searchable and indexed in Google.
Please consider submitting any published research you have written or co-authored to this collection. Suitable material includes:
Conference presentations, posters, journal articles, abstracts, systematic reviews, theses, books, book chapters, official reports, and position papers."

As well as capturing and increasing the visibility of existing LIS research, I'm sure it will also help to encourage and promote a culture of research in the health sciences library field generally.

For more information see the HSLG website or Lenus.
