Abstract: Accreditation in the Health Sciences: A Definitive Guide for Libraries explores the role of the library in any health sciences organization...s accreditation efforts. This book has been specifically written to address the unique needs of health sciences libraries in supporting an institution's accreditation efforts. The enterprising library professional can treat this title as a manual on how to proactively address the challenges that come with any health sciences related accreditation site visits. The lessons in these chapters will create and build upon valuable opportunities for partnered success between the library and the institution it supports. Library professionals will want to have this guide handy if they need to convey any data to an accrediting agency on behalf of their institution. This book will cover all elements of health sciences libraries and has been written in a way to highlight theories and best practices, rather than specific steps to follow that will easily be outdated with any accrediting body update. In a time when librarians are asked to do more with less, this is especially targeted towards the solo, small team, and/or start up library team to simplify and optimize the accreditation experience. Special chapters discuss strategy to advance the library's story will serve as a way to illustrate value and advocate for a well-resourced library. Finally, this book also can serve as an informational tool to accrediting teams themselves to better understand the myriad ways that library services are meaningfully integrated into the institutions they support. Whether working directly in the library or adjacent to it, Accreditation in the Health Sciences will be an asset for a team invested in accreditation success.
