E4GDH will contribute to this year’s WLIC theme of “Transform Libraries,

health and allied sectors can play an increasing role in programmes to

so welcome submissions from a wide range of roles including librarians
and information officers; health and public health professionals;
systematic reviewers; humanitarian and voluntary sector workers, and
Abstracts are invited for either full papers or for lightning talks.
