Through the looking glass - reflections and refractions in health libraries


"Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place.

If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!"

Lewis Carroll, Alice Through the Looking Glass


 The 2016 HLI Conference focused on library in(visibility) with innovative libraries presenting how they have made their services more visible while providing a seamless and invisible experience.


In 2017, we want to peer through the looking glass and reflect over the past year.


Mirrors can shed light, be reflective, provide an altered image, and they can shatter. We want to reflect on success in weathering change, or how we have overcome moments of disconnection and distortion. We want to learn more about how we – as knowledge management professionals, as subject specialists, as information literacy educators, as people in the health library space – view ourselves.
As a profession we regularly move through our organisations and our vendors re-structures and endure significant change – what have we learnt while doing this? What do we see that mirrors success for our professions future?


Want to share your reflections with your colleagues?
