Archive of previous meeting minutes


In 2006, a group of UBC School of Library, Archival and Information Studies students in the Master of Library and Information Science program interested in health librarianship met to start their own CHLA/ABSC SLAIS Student Interest Group (SIG). The SIG set up a wiki to communicate with members and health librarians in the field and called it the SLAIS CHLA/ABSC pbwiki. Materials were moved in HLWIKI Canada in 2007. SIG appointed members to form the Executive and at a subsequent meeting wrote its mission statement: "Bridging the gap between students and working professionals in health librarianship." The SLAIS SIG reconsolidated itself in 2007-2008. In 2012, the online presence of the SLAIS SIG moved to UBC Blogs. Check us out here: CHLA at SLAIS.
