Description

Health Libraries Australia (HLA) has provided significant support to The Census of Australian Health Libraries and Health Librarians Working Outside the Traditional Library Setting in order to gain comprehensive insights into the nature, scale and composition of Australian LIS and its workforce. This overview examines what was known about the demographics of the Australian health library sector prior to carrying out the project.

A search was conducted of the major specialist health databases, namely Medline and CINAHL, together with Library and Information Science Abstracts (LISA) and ProQuest Library Science for the period January 2000 to December 2015. The author also drew on her knowledge of relevant grey literature and personal knowledge of the Australian health and health LIS sectors.
