What Is HILOW+?

Founded in 1965 by library professionals in Westchester-area health sciences libraries, HILOW+ today is a network of health libraries in Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Orange, Ulster and Dutchess Counties as well as Connecticut and the New York metropolitan area. HILOW+ supports free exchange of information and membership in the Basic Health Science Libraries (BHSL) Network. Any questions or comments about HILOW+? Contact Mary Jo Russell at Vassar Brothers.




The goal of Basic Health Science Libraries (BHSL) Network is to maximize free resources for libraries in the Middle Atlantic and New England Regiions of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM). Participation in BHSL requires membership in a local consortium, such as HILOW+, as well as monthly reporting of interlibrary statistics. Any questions or comments? Contact HILOW+/ BHSL Coordinator Kathleen Fiola, at Helen Hayes Hospital.
