Accountability and Accreditation for Special Libraries: It Can Be Done!
Australian Library Journal, v53 n3 p275-284 Aug 2004
Health librarians are very familiar with the accreditation process in hospitals. In 2000 the first ALIA National Policy Congress recommended that accreditation of special libraries should be implemented. The proposed guidelines have been roughly based on the EQuIP Program of the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards. This program is recognised as a national and international leader in the accreditation process.
