Each participant from both full and affiliate member institutions will interview and be interviewed by another participant. Interview pairings have been assigned and are available online.

What I do know is that e-HLbc has made my job so much more efficient and satisfying. I like having the ability to get articles for our patrons so quickly and I know how much they appreciate having that information as soon as possible. I have had several requests for information that involved urgent patient care and was able to supply the information within minutes - the staff were so grateful (and really impressed). It's a great feeling at the end of the day, whether urgent or not, to know that you may have helped affect the course of patient care through literature searches and article requests.
