Hospital Library Service Program

Funded by New York State, the Hospital Library Service Program (HLSP) is a statewide effort to improve library service to the professional staff of New York State hospitals.

  • Assistance in meeting JCAHO and NY State Department of Education requirements for hospital libraries
  • Reference, database retrieval, and interlibrary loan services
  • Cataloging service through CDLC
  • Library materials grants
  • Continuing education opportunities
  • Curated Health Related Links webpage.
