MLA signs onto CHLA ABSC statement on the importance of hospital libraries

Throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic, there has been growing concern from leaders regarding misinformation, but an unwillingness to support and maintain hospital libraries. The Canadian Health Libraries Association/Association des bibliothèques de la santé du Canada (CHLA/ABSC) has issued this statement, which MLA has signed onto, in response to these trends.

This statement outlines the role hospital libraries play in the provision of evidence-based health care, and our concern and disappointment regarding the continued decommissioning, closure, underfunding, and understaffing of hospital libraries. The statement will be sent to politicians, hospital leaders, professional associations and others, as well as shared to the CHLA/ABSC social media and website.
