Guidelines for Australian health libraries, 5th edition 2022

The Guidelines for Australian Health Libraries (the Guidelines), provide a framework for health librarians to deliver the best possible health library and information services to their clients. 
The fifth edition of the Guidelines builds on the solid base of previous versions, retaining the same four broad Guideline Areas, divided into more specific criteria against which individual libraries may be assessed. This edition contains a number of important revisions and improvements.
