PRINCETON, NJ (September 21, 2018) – HSLANJ members, primarily medical librarians located throughout the state of New Jersey, recently identified the #1 most valuable service that HSLANJ provides: the Group Licensing Initiative (GLI)! This is according to a summer 2018 membership survey conducted by the organization’s Strategic Direction Task Force.
While we are thrilled about this news, we are also excited to continue outreach to librarians throughout the three National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) regions that we serve with the GLI (Middle Atlantic Region (MAR), Southeastern Atlantic Region (SEA), and Northeast Region (NER).
Why do medical librarians value participation in the GLI?
First, there is no membership fee in order to participate in the GLI. All medical librarians in the three regions covering 20 states are welcome to participate as they’re able, as budgets allow, in either or both Spring or Fall Offer periods.
The HSLANJ GLI is recognized by the NNLM as the lead organization capable of assisting health sciences librarians obtain resources.
Deadline to participate in the Fall Offer is Friday, November 9. Due to the online ordering system, no exceptions can be made regarding the deadline. The HSLANJ GLI greatly appreciates and welcomes early orders.
Founded in 1972, HSLANJ is a non-profit organization which encourages the professional development and advancement of librarianship to improve the quality of library services provided by health care organizations.
