Launch of “High Profile Health Libraries: An advocacy toolkit for library and knowledge services”

High Profile Health Libraries at http://lksadvocacy.pbworks.com has been produced as a reference tool for use by all LKS staff.

The development of the toolkit is in response to a number of requests from LKS Managers for assistance as their services come under ever more scrutiny in the current financial climate. The toolkit provides guidance and will sign post you to  a range of tools, resources and case studies which you can use to ensure you are operating effectively and efficiently providing best value for money.

Current contents include:

  1. Introduction
  2. Making the case:
    • Understanding your service
    • Understanding your organisation
    •  Building a business case
    • Network overview
    • Policy watch
    • Health economy
    • Service Review and Development
  3. Developing champions
  4. Where to get help
  5. What worked elsewhere:  various case studies
  6. References
  7. How to contribute

We want to ensure that we continue to evolve the toolkit with useful resources, guidance and in particular case studies. We value your input and contribution to the toolkit so that we can produce a beneficial resource for all.
