The H.E.LI.N. book presentations will be included within the timeframe of this distinction.

H.E.LI.N. was established in 2012. It is a collaboration of libraries that are linked by their collections, their resources and their information services, all with economics content. The mission of H.E.LI.N. is to provide efficient and quality services to its user communities via an exchange of resources and services amongst the library-members.

The importance of cooperation and synergies is stressed, as well. Steps and best practices that can prevent repeated mistakes and that can determine creative and long-term trends in the tourism industry are discussed.
