How You Can Support Medical Librarians and Health Information Professionals
MLA currently has two active advocacy campaigns underway.
Our Essential Partners in Healthcare Excellence campaign calls upon hospital and health care administrators to advocate for funding of hospital libraries, librarians and library staff. Resources cited in our sign-on statement demonstrate the value that the health information libraries provide in health care settings.
The Advocating for Authorship: Librarians and Information Professionals as Authors on Evidence Synthesis Publications campaign encourages guideline associations, journal editors, peer reviewers, and collaborators to ensure that all authors who meet authorship criteria established by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) receive authorship credit for their contributions.
