The Rhode Island Special Interest Group (SIG) of NAHSL: Home

Formerly known as the Association of Rhode Island Health Science Libraries (ARIHSL)


  • To promote resource sharing and information exchang
  • To provide a symposium for professional development
  • To encourage and maintain interest in health science libraries
  • To represent the interests of the Rhode Island health science library community


The Association of Rhode Island Health Science Libraries (ARIHSL) has been dissolved as an association and has evolved into a Special Interest Group (SIG) of the North Atlantic Health Science Librarians (NAHSL), a New England wide professional association of medical and health science librarians and information specialists, and a regional chapter of the Medical Library Association (MLA). As such, Rhode Island health science librarians can continue to be engaged professionally, communicate through the group's listserv, share information, and continue to fulfill the former association's mission stated in the box to the left. We welcome new members to join the Rhode Island SIG, which requires membership in NAHSL.
