Update on the Nova Scotia Virtual Health Library

Library Directors for the IWK, Capital Health, and Dalhousie University's Kellogg Health Sciences Library, and the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness's Director of Policy and Planning have formed a Working Group for the Nova Scotia Virtual Health Library (NSVHL). With financial support from the Academic Health Council, the Working Group is exploring the development of a provincial consortium of health libraries and knowledge services. METHODS: In 2009, a survey was used to collect information from potential members of the consortium to determine if:

  • A need exists for a consortium
  • A consortium is feasible and to assist with the planning and development process This past winter, the working group hired a consultant to develop the NSVHL business case / plan, leading to the implementation Nova Scotia Virtual Health Library.

RESULTS & CONCLUSIONS: The presenters will present the results of this phase of the NSVHL project.
