Welcome New Members
e-HLbc is pleased to welcome two new affiliate members.
The Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine offers a four-year program, with students working towards a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine designation. It is Western Canada’s only naturopathic medical school accredited by the Council on Naturopathic Medical Education. The institute is also home to the Boucher Naturopathic Medical Clinic.

The Health Employers Association of BC coordinates the human resource and labour relations interests of more than 270 publicly funded health care employers in British Columbia. HEABC represents denominational, proprietary and affiliate health employers, as well as the province’s six health authorities.
With BINM and HEABC on board, e-HLbc moves one step closer to its vision to provide the entire British Columbia academic and health care community with province-wide high quality, cost-effective and easily accessible health library resources.
A New Face at the e-HLbcAdministrative Centre
Welcome to Sarah Gleeson Noyes, a new librarian working part-time at the e-HLbc Administrative Centre. Sarah graduated in 2010 from the University of Western Ontario’s MLIS program. Since then she has worked as librarian in both medical and academic settings. When not working on e-HLbc projects, she can be found on AskAway's Virtual Reference Desk.
“Working at Fraser Health Authority let me experience e-HLbc from the user perspective,” says Sarah, “It has been fantastic joining e-HLbc and learning the other side of the service, I’m very excited to be able to be part of the team.”
