About us

HLISD is a comprehensive directory of health library and information services in the UK. It is a partnership initiative, with funding provided by Health Education England and the CILIP Health Libraries Group, and local health library and information staff maintaining the entries for their services.

The HLISD Board maintains oversight of the Directory and its ongoing development and improvement.

Board members


The directory covers the whole of the UK and includes all health library and information sectors whether they are NHS, Further or Higher Education, Government, Professional Bodies, Patient Information or Voluntary Organisations.

The number of entries is currently 588 and we are keen to continue adding new services. It is also valuable as a directory of contacts and we now have 1553 contact listings.
