Would you like to know more about health librarianship? Maybe you are unsure of what a health librarian actually does, the type of roles, functions and responsibilities expected of them? Maybe you would love to hear about challenges and opportunities in the field of health librarianship and get a better understanding of the industry in general? Or maybe you just really love health librarianship and can’t think of a better way to spend a Wednesday evening!

If so, the Curtin Information Studies (CURTIS) Club would love to give you the chance to get these questions (and more!) answered by prominent health librarian and HLA Convenor Ann Ritchie. Join us for an evening of all things health librarianship as Ann speaks about the responsibilities, functions and roles of health librarians, as well as discussing the challenges and opportunities for health librarianship.

Not only is Ann an exceptional Australian health librarian, but as her awarding of an ALIA fellowship last year attests, Ann has made a distinguished contribution and provided a long-standing and dedicated service to health librarianship in general. We are extremely lucky to have such a high calibre leader willing to speak with us and share her experiences and knowledge so that we can make informed decisions about our future direction in librarianship!
