The purpose of this website is to present information concerning LS 534, Health Sciences Librarianship at The University of Alabama School of Library and Information Studies.

This course is a mixture of traditional librarianship topics coupled with an exposure to Library 2.0 technologies in health sciences contexts. Please send feedback to in order to help me maintain the course. Course materials are divided into the following pages:

This course is intended to serve as the first of a two course sequence to educate Health Sciences Librarians for the new century. The second course is Health Sciences Informatics. Additionally, we provide opportunities for internships and directed studies and have placed interns in sites ranging from the CDC Information Center in Atlanta to the two academic health sciences libraries in Alabama (UAB and USA) and a variety of hospital sites.
