Michigan Health Sciences Libraries Association

Michigan Health Sciences Libraries Association


MHSLA's purpose is to promote excellence in health sciences librarianship by providing its membership with opportunities for professional growth, fostering communication between members and their regions, facilitating resource sharing, increasing awareness of new technologies, providing high-quality continuing education, and conducting research in health sciences information services.

The Michigan Health Sciences Libraries Association was officially organized in 1977, though Michigan health sciences librarians have been active in resource sharing and cooperative ventures since World War II. Regional groups first developed in 1962 when the Metropolitan Detroit Medical Library Group was formed. They produced the first union list of health sciences serials in the state. From 1972 through the early '80s, other local groups organized in Michigan as part of MHSLA.
