Effective January 1, 2018, the Atlanta Health Science Library Consortium (AHSLC) will merge with the Georgia Health Sciences Library Association (GHSLA).

The Executive leadership of GHSLA proposed the merger in 2016 as an opportunity to ensure continued success for each group.  By merging duplicate functions and structures, while respecting the history of each group, it is anticipated that the alliance will broaden the organization’s impact and create a stronger future for its members.

The GHSLA bylaws have been updated to incorporate AHSLC priorities and meeting schedule and were approved by the membership in April, 2017. GHSLA meetings will now be four times a year with the May meeting being considered the State Conference.

In November, GHSLA and AHSLC members will be sent 2018 GHSLA membership applications. AHSLC history and archives will be transferred to the www.GHSLA.org website and www.AHSLC.org will no longer be active after January 2018.
