The Health Libraries Association of British Columbia (HLABC) was founded in 1978 by W. (Bill) Colin Fraser who was one of BC's pioneers in health librarianship. Some of HLABC's prominent members over the years have included Sue Abzinger, Jim Henderson, David Noble and Linda Howard. Today, HLABC is the provincial library association for hospital and health librarians as well as health library assistants and library technicians. As the provincial chapter of the CHLA/ABSC (Canada). HLABC maintains its own bylaws and membership lists. HLABC represents the views of health libraries and librarians in the province and aims to work with and advocate for library and information professionals locally, provincially and nationally. HLABC hosts regular lectures and continuing education events during its annual summer meeting, and seeks to publish information on its blog and via the HLABC-l listserv.
