Still Seeking Medical Librarians from East Africa

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 “.

Jeanette can be contacted at
