Jeanette Murphy, Senior Research Fellow in Health Informatics at University College London, is still trying to find librarians who would be willing to contribute to a feature column ( International Perspectives and Initiatives ) which she edits for Health Information and Libraries Journal ( HIL ).
A future issue will be looking at trends in health science librarianship in East Africa. Authors will be asked to write a short ( 800-900 words ) piece describing key trends in their country. She will supply background articles from previous issues and provide editorial help and support. Copy will be due early February 2015.
She says ” I have managed to find medical librarians in Uganda and Tanzania but I have not had any luck in finding librarians from Kenya and Ethiopia “.
