This document identifies and describes the ALIA Health Libraries Australia (ALIA HLA) eight competency areas. Health librarians, from novice to expert, need a basic understanding of each competency area:
- The health environment
- Reference and research services
- Leadership and management
- Digital, ehealth and technology
- Health literacy and teaching
- Health research
The competencies review compares the ALIA HLA Competencies 2018 to equivalent standards by relevant organisations.
