Spectacular advances in information technology, the capacity of the internet and the increasing emphasis on scientific rigour and research-based evidence have both spurred and challenged health information professionals to develop the dynamic, scientific and innovative resources we see today.

Health librarians have both adapted to and helped to shape changes in the new environment (advances in information technology, the capacity of the internet and the increasing emphasis on scientific rigour and research-based evidence have both spurred and challenged health information professionals).

We hope that this session will contribute to this conversation and, by identifying the patterns in our environment, both past and emerging, we can make informed predictions about the future of our profession, the trends which will shape it and the steps we need to take to prepare for it.

This conference will discuss the impact of the increasing overlap of the work of health science librarianship, the approaches to future proofing as well as our contribution to health information and open repositories.
