HSLIC Development

HSLIC Journal Club

individuals communicating

The HSLIC Journal Club is a regular gathering of librarians and archivists to discuss and critically evaluate recent articles that appear in academic literature, as well as material that may appear in social and/or other media types. Articles discussed by the HSLIC Journal Club may vary depending on membership and interests, and are organized loosely around the subject matters germane to providing library services in an academic setting and for patrons in health sciences related fields. HSLIC Journal Club is open to anyone wishing to attend.
