HSLANJ Group Licensing Initiative: Saving Hospital Librarians Time and Money
Medical librarians are increasingly asked to do more with less. The HSLANJ Group Licensing Initiative currently works with librarians in more than 130 hospitals and nonprofit health associations navigate the increasingly complicated and expensive arena of electronic licensing. HSLANJ GLI staff negotiates pricing and licensing terms, freeing up valuable time for librarians to work with their patrons, rather than spending time on tedious paperwork. Librarians will learn about the HSLANJ Group Licensing Initiative, and whether partnering with the initiative may be right for their library.
