What is this? Future Steps & Guiding Principles

glossary As a Taskforce, we are very aware that there is an endless amount of high quality resources out there and we'd love to know if you have a suggestion!

Please use the Submit a Resource option on the left and keep reading for how we intend to keep this site updated and some of our guiding principles to understand why we might include some resources, and not others. Trust us, it's never personal!


Guiding Principles:

Our intention: 

1)  This site is intended to be a 'starting-point'.  As a group we decided it was never to be a comprehensive collection of resources, but much more humbly, as an entry level toolkit intended to provide some basic resources, and guide the user in their search for value.

2) We intend for this site to be flexible, both in who might use it (Librarians, Library Technicians, Information Managers, Records Management etc.) as well as what organization the user might be part of (Hospital, College, Public Health Unit, Not-for-profit Org. etc.).  As a group, we decided to provide more generic resources, or resources from any of these areas to ensure we don't focus too much on one e.g.: a Hospital Librarian

Our dedication:

1) An HSICT appointed group will review end-user resource submissions semi-annually.  As a group, they will decide which resources should be updated, added, or possibly omitted* 

2) An HSICT appointed group will review the entire site every 2 years to maintain its currency and relevancy 

*Again, please note that we 100% appreciate any resource submission but cannot promise to include all submissions.  Rest assured it is never a personal decision but is in all likelihood a decision based in our other guiding principles.
