HLG is a UK based network of individuals working in or professionally interested in health and social care information. Our strength is our diverse and active membership covering all health and social sectors, and geographical areas in the UK. Members work for the health service, the academic sector, the independent sector, government departments, professional associations, charities and public libraries. Students with an interest in health and social care information are also welcome. Several HLG members live and work abroad.
HLG has most recently funded an e-librarian to study a module on a Master's programme on the topic of Library and Information Science, Digital Library and Information Services.
The Bursary was established to encourage attendance at international conferences in health librarianship, medical bibliography or medical history and awards up to £1,000 to the successful recipient.
