Library involvement in health informatics education for health professions students and practitioners: a scoping review
CONCLUSIONS: Limited published examples of health informatics educational activities provide models for library roles in informatics education. More librarians should report on their informatics educational activities and provide sufficient details on the interventions and their evaluation. This would strengthen the evidence base about the potential impact of libraries within informatics education.PMID:34629964 | PMC:PMC8485947 | DOI:10.5195/jmla.2021.1081 (Source: Journal of the Medical Library Association : JMLA)

A best-fit solution: transforming an NHS Library and Knowledge Service in readiness for a new hospital building without a traditional library space
CONCLUSION: Embedding the LKS team in the clinical setting, engaging in proactive outreach activity, and improving our marketing led to a 44% increase in literature searches requested compared to the same eleven-month period in the previous year. A 40% decrease in our print book loans indicates additional barriers to using a click-and-collect service and the need for greater investment in our e-book provision. However, early outcomes for our best-fit service transformation are positive. Having an open, dual mindset has enabled the service to embrace change and maximize emerging opportunities to collaborate with clinical st...

Piloting a long-term evaluation of library data workshops
CONCLUSIONS: Survey results indicated that our workshops impacted how researchers at our medical center collect and analyze data, supporting the conclusion that we should concentrate our educational efforts on providing skills-based workshops.

J Med Libr Assoc. 2021 Jul 1;109(3):505-506. doi: 10.5195/jmla.2021.1226.ABSTRACTInvisible labor is a term used by labor economists to describe work that contributes, and is often even necessary, to the economy but largely goes unrecognized and unpaid. Despite the fact that systematic review searching is a significant task for many librarians and knowledge professionals, the search process can be considered a form of invisible labor because it often goes without recognition. This occurs sometimes through not granting authorship to the librarian who performed the intellectual contribution of search development and sometimes...

The activity has enhanced the librarian's relationship and collaboration with the course faculty and made a positive impression on the students.PMID:34629978 | PMC:PMC8485938 | DOI:10.5195/jmla.2021.1178 (Source: Journal of the Medical Library Association : JMLA)

A best-fit solution: transforming an NHS Library and Knowledge Service in readiness for a new hospital building without a traditional library space
CONCLUSION: Embedding the LKS team in the clinical setting, engaging in proactive outreach activity, and improving our marketing led to a 44% increase in literature searches requested compared to the same eleven-month period in the previous year. A 40% decrease in our print book loans indicates additional barriers to using a click-and-collect service and the need for greater investment in our e-book provision. However, early outcomes for our best-fit service transformation are positive. Having an open, dual mindset has enabled the service to embrace change and maximize emerging opportunities to collaborate with clinical st...

Piloting a long-term evaluation of library data workshops
CONCLUSIONS: Survey results indicated that our workshops impacted how researchers at our medical center collect and analyze data, supporting the conclusion that we should concentrate our educational efforts on providing skills-based workshops. The low response rate and time-consuming nature of the analysis point toward several improvements for future evaluation efforts, including better tracking of workshop attendees, a shorter survey with fewer open-ended questions, and survey implementation within one year of the workshop date.PMID:34629980 | PMC:PMC8485943 | DOI:10.5195/jmla.2021.1047 (Source: Journal of the Medical Lib...

Redesigning library orientation for first-year medical students during the pandemic
CONCLUSIONS: A successful virtual library orientation requires careful preparation, including testing the competition tasks, full rehearsal with library facilitators, and a thoughtful approach to technology and logistics. We have chosen to share the materials we developed for other academic health sciences libraries that may wish to take a similar approach to their own virtual orientations.PMID:34629981 | PMC:PMC8485957 | DOI:10.5195/jmla.2021.1190 (Source: Journal of the Medical Library Association : JMLA)

Search is a verb: systematic review searching as invisible labor
J Med Libr Assoc. 2021 Jul 1;109(3):505-506. doi: 10.5195/jmla.2021.1226.ABSTRACTInvisible labor is a term used by labor economists to describe work that contributes, and is often even necessary, to the economy but largely goes unrecognized and unpaid. Despite the fact that systematic review searching is a significant task for many librarians and knowledge professionals, the search process can be considered a form of invisible labor because it often goes without recognition. This occurs sometimes through not granting authorship to the librarian who performed the intellectual contribution of search development and sometimes...
