Hospital Library Advisory Group (HLAG)

Hospital Library Advisory Group (HLAG)

The Hospital Library Advisory Group (HLAG) consists of members from within the region whose libraries serve a teaching or community hospital. The HLAG advises Region 7 on the status and issues facing hospital libraries. Working with Region 7 staff, the group proposes pilot projects, programs, and other initiatives. The group will inform the development of national webinars directly addressing needs or challenges faced by hospital librarians. HLAG members will meet virtually twice a year or more frequently if requested.
