The purpose of this paper is to examine the value of the MSLS degree in health sciences library settings.
This is a discourse and preliminary analysis supported with research from the literature.
The value of the MSLS degree in the health sciences library setting is well recognized. Health sciences librarians’ efforts to evaluate and quantify positive impact of services can provide a useful model for the information and library science field.
As this is a preliminary discussion, an exhaustive literature analysis was not undertaken.
A model for empirical-based research, borne out of the health sciences library specialty, can contribute to more effective methods for evaluating general library service and the overall value of the MSLS degree.
