Why bring a librarian along?

Here are some ways HSL librarians have contributed to the success of the UNC research projects:

  • Development of onsite medical library in Lilongwe, Malawi;
  • Conducting technology needs assessment at Mulago Hospital in Kampala, Uganda;
  • HINARI training for pediatric residents at the Albert Cook Medical Library;
  • Giving real-time clinical information support.

Can the HSL support the information needs at my site?

Do researchers at your overseas site have access to print and electronic clinical information necessary for their work? Maybe an existing library needs assistance building collections or training staff?

UNC HSL librarians have experience supporting UNC researchers and medical libraries overseas. Read about our support of the UNC Project-Malawi medical library.

Let's discuss options for supporting the information needs at your project site!
