Organized in 1973 to provide a forum for education and the exchange of information among health sciences librarians in Connecticut, CAHSL continues to play a vital role in the delivery of health care resources. CAHSL seeks to stimulate interest in and strengthen health sciences librarianship and libraries in Connecticut, by:
- Promoting an understanding of the health sciences Iibrarian's role and unique abilities in the management of knowledge-based information, and eliciting strong support within Connecticut's health care system for the mission of health sciences Iibraries.
- Continually developing and strengthening the knowledge and skills needed by member librarians to meet the patient care, research, and educational needs of Connecticut's health care providers
- Fostering and strengthening the Association's current system of information exchange and shared resources, both among Association members and within the larger consortia and organizations of which CAHSL is a part.
