Welcome to 11th KHSLA 2019
Research is fundamental to the health science professionals. The face of research and publication is changing globally.

Librarians have served as the primary liaison between the health science library and the research departments. They have always supported the researchers traditionally through provision of discovery and access to research materials. Nowadays various digital tools have made their way into the scholarly world to facilitate search, research writing, reference management, publishing models and research promotion.  Health Science Library and Information professionals need to keep themselves abreast of new technologies in the field of health science research.
