2005 Open Forum

HE-NHS Joined Up Working?

Woburn House, Tavistock Square, London, Tuesday 15 March 2005

The UHMLG Open Forum is an annual event which brings together health care librarians from the NHS, HE and from related sectors to look at topics of shared interest. This year's theme is "HE/NHS - joined up working?" The day will be looking at current topics including NHS library funding; IT connectivity between NHS and academic networks; services to joint NHS/HE user communities; cross boundary knowledge sharing and Helicon accreditation. The programme will bring together a range of speakers who are working with these issues at either strategic or practitioner level with an opportunity for formal questions and informal networking during the day.

(Links to presentations will be added as they become available).


Links are provided to presentations that have been made available by speakers at the meeting.
