“Using Assessment to Drive Change: Demonstrating the Value of Health Information”

Call for papers from the Health and Biosciences Section of IFLA for an Open Session at the Congress in Helsinki, Finland from 11th – 17th August, 2012.

This is the challenge:

“I hope librarians are not waiting for people to create a strategy for them. My observation is that professions need to create their own strategy and see if they can sell it. I think librarians need to tell me what it is that only they can do that adds value, and make sure that I can really understand it.” Nigel Crisp, Chief Executive of the National Health Service (UK) until 2006 and now a member of the House of Lords in the UK Parliament where he speaks on health and development.
