Information Prescription at UVA: Piloting an Innovative Librarian-Led Program in Collaboration with the EMR Team
UVA opened its new Patient & Family Library (PFL) in March 2015, in the main lobby of the University Hospital. The library serves a variety of needs for patients and families, on both the inpatient and ambulatory sides of the medical center. To increase the number of health information requests in the PFL, the library approached the Epic team and senior IT administrators about creating an "Information Prescription" mediated via the EMR.

Going Local: Encouraging Sustainable Food Choices to the Campus Community
This library project promotes the diverse agricultural industry and active local food movement within the region. University dining services and many local eateries have been actively working to provide local food choices as part of their regular menus. Choosing foods from local sources can help support the local economy and have a positive effect on the environment and human health.

Presenter: Sapp, L [James Madison University]
Time: 11:36 - 11:41 am (Lightning Talk)


A library reborn: The first three months in the life of the new NYU Health Sciences Library
"In October of 2012 Superstorm Sandy completely destroyed the NYU Health Sciences Library. Three and a half years later in June 2016 a completely redesigned space will open to users. Though clearly a disaster for the medical center, Sandy allowed the library an unprecedented opportunity to imagine the library of the future. This talk will focus on the first three months of the new paperless space that has many of the features considered essential in today’s evolving health sciences library; a classroom designed for interactive learning, group collaboration rooms and a technology innovation room, housing a 3D printer, data visualization software and a virtual reality station."

Presenter: Curran, AF [NYU Langone Health Sciences Library]
Time: 11:43 - 11:48 am (Lightning Talk)


Coordinating a Two-tiered Systematic Review Service Across Multiple Campuses
The goal of the team of academic health sciences librarians was to develop and promote a pilot systematic review service to a health sciences community across multiple campuses. The service was established with two tiers, to offer different levels of service to faculty and students based on their different needs.

Presenter: Jewell, ST [Rutgers University]

Librarians 2 : Roles


4:00 - 5:00 pm


Text and Data Mining for Systematic Reviews: Investigating Trends to Update Collaboration Services
When discussing project planning for systematic reviews and meta-analyses with faculty and graduate students, librarians sometimes hear wistful inquiries about automated approaches. Systematic reviews (SRs) require management, analysis, and synthesis of large amounts of data, perhaps particularly those including numerous studies with qualitative text-based data. To investigate how text and data mining approaches might be used in SRs to increase project efficiency, the author conducted, and reports on the results of a literature review.

Presenter: Pannabecker, V [Virginia Tech, University Libraries]
Time: 4:01 - 4:13 pm (Paper presentation)


Data and Informatics Library Roles in Medical and STEM Libraries
Academic and medical libraries are evolving as patron needs change, and many of these needs require librarians with data or informatics expertise. This study examines the changes in data and informatics responsibilities of medical and STEM librarians over a ten year period to determine how academic and medical libraries are supporting these specialized needs at their various institutions.

Presenters: Reed, RB; Butkovich, NJ [Penn State Hershey]
Time: 4:15 - 4:27 pm (Paper presentation)


Librarian Leadership in Interprofessional Education
Interprofessional Education (IPE) has become a new mandate by almost all health science accreditation bodies. Since most institutions are just beginning this initiative it is postulated that early librarian participation in championing the mandate can raise the profile of librarians and foster a focus on information literacy and communication within the IPE curriculum.

Presenter: Warwick, S [Touro Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine & Pharmacy]
Time: 4:29 - 4:41 pm (Paper presentation)


Leading the Path Forward in Translational Studies
There is increased emphasis in rigor and reproducibility of basic science research. AlzPED (Alzheimer’s Preclinical Efficacy Database) is a new resource for improving the transparency and reproducibility of Alzheimer's disease preclinical research. Conceptualized by Program Managers within the National Institute of Aging (NIA), AlzPED highlights key factors contributing to the unsuccessful translation of therapeutic efficacy. NIA has collaborated with the NIH Library on this project. This paper describes the librarians’ role in the design, development, and assessment of the AlzPED database. Emphasize will be placed on the assessment features use to demonstrate the utility of the database, as well as trends in research.

Concerto A & B

Leadership 1: Transformational


11:00 - 12:00 pm


Developing a Library Strategic Plan that is REALLY Strategic: Lessons from Our Users
Many library strategic plans are developed in a vacuum with a library-centric view of user needs and priorities. What about a new methodology? One involving “strategic listening” and “user engagement?” A plan aligned with the new university strategic plan and tied to performance development plans. Our planning team identified, surveyed and interviewed key stakeholders not about what the library should be doing but what could the library do to ensure their success.

Presenter: Tooey, MJ [Health Sciences and Human Services Library, University of Maryland, Baltimore]
Time: 11:01 - 11:13 am (Paper presentation)


Leading Change through Changing Perceptions
We have heard it said that perception is reality. The Samuel J. Wood Library Leadership Team sought to change perceptions of the library by changing perceptions of the administration, staff, students and faculty. In so doing, library leadership positioned the library to be a service that is sought out by researchers, clinicians and students. This transformation is seen in services, space and perceptions.

Presenters: Wheeler, TR; Delgado, D; Mix, LA [Weill Cornell Medicine]
Time: 11:15 - 11:27 am (Paper presentation)


Aligning Library Customer Service with a Core Initiative of the Health System
The University’s Health System has been integrating LEAN business practices (known here as Be Safe) into the workflow. Be Safe empowers frontline employees to identify and call out safety and quality issues. Preferably, empowered employees resolve issues immediately. Issues that can’t be resolved immediately are discussed by leadership up the help chain. On April 23, 2015, we implemented Be Safe practices at our service desk primarily to resolve service barriers in a timelier manner. We expanded its reach by capturing data for determining patron demand, detecting trends, and improving service desk training.

Presenter: Wilson, D [University of Virginia]
Time: 11:29 - 11:41 am (Paper presentation)


Voluntary Giving versus Charging for ILL Service: Did a Development Approach Work?
Library users saw being charged for ILL as a barrier and resented being charged to do their work Departmental money wasn't generally available to pay ILL fees. The library piloted free ILL service and in order to regain lost revenue began asking for tax-deductible contributions.

Presenter: Ascher, MT [New York Medical College Health Sciences Library]
Time: 11:43 - 11:48 am (Lightning Talk)


Engaging Library Staff in Meaningful Work
Academic Health Sciences Library has an Information Services Department consisting of two librarians and six library services specialists. Specialists spend approximately sixteen hours a week working at the Information Services Desk providing reference, circulation, and computing assistance. To foster professional development and engage specialists in significant work, librarians developed new projects and roles for staff when not at the desk.

Presenters: Harris, R; Brown, E [Health Sciences & Human Services Library, University of Maryland]
Time: 11:50 - 11:55 am (Lightning Talk)


Leadership 2: Leveraging


4:00 - 5:00 pm


Getting the Champagne out of the Bottle: Koha as a Local Authors Catalog
In addition to providing patient care, MedStar associates produce a substantial body of research and publications on a wide variety of topics. The library produces an annual printed bibliography of publications and conference activities, but it is not readily available outside the hospital network. In order to spread awareness of MedStar associates’ scholarly activities, the library has designed a local authors catalog using a modified version of the open-source ILS Koha and put it online outside the hospital. We hope that this project can serve as a model for other institutions wanting to track and publicize research done in their institutions.

Presenter: King, F [MedStar Washington Hospital Center]
Time: 4:01 - 4:13 pm (Paper presentation)


Leading in a Virtual World

The Ithaka S+R Local Faculty Survey for Health Sciences: What is it and why should I care?
This presentation will share faculty perceptions of the role of libraries based on the results of the Ithaka S+R Local Faculty Survey for health sciences at our university. Additionally, the adoption and potential usefulness of this survey instrument in health sciences libraries will be discussed.

Presenter: Lubker, IM [Virginia Commonwealth University]
Time: 4:29 - 4:41 pm (Paper presentation)


SHARE: Share Health Awareness with Resources and Education --- Librarians’ leadership role in patient education
Despite the availability of various online patient education resources, the majority of physicians have not incorporated them into practice. As health sciences librarians, part of our role is to help bridge that gap in order to contribute to patient care. The SHARE Program’s objective is to reach out to physicians, faculty, students, nurses, patients and their families to raise the awareness of consumer health resources available through the National Library of Medicine and the Health Sciences Libraries at Rutgers University.

Presenter: Zhu, Y [Rutgers University]
Time: 4:43 - 4:55 pm (Paper presentation)


Maestro A & B

Learning 1: Librarians as Learners


11:00 - 12:00 pm


Building a Critical Mass of Systematic Review Authors and Teachers: A Collaboration between Librarians and Faculty
A literature search showed that Duquesne University researchers had conducted only eight systematic reviews or meta-analyses in the previous 20 years, which was lower than comparable institutions. Because systematic reviews are increasingly recognized as the best sources of clinical evidence, the authors concluded that building a critical mass of health sciences faculty interested in conducting systematic reviews and incorporating them into undergraduate and graduate education would improve health sciences education and research at the University.

Presenters: Nolfi, DA; Kalarchian, MA [Duquesne University]
Time: 11:01 - 11:13 am (Paper presentation)


The Evolution of Aphorisms in Library Research Instruction
Presented first as a poster in 2012 at the MLA Quad Chapter Meeting in Baltimore when the effort generated a list of aphorisms to use in library research instruction sessions, this follow-up presentation will discuss how the aphorisms have changed to adapt to the researcher’s evolving teaching emphasis. Aphorisms can be both established phrases that have been repurposed or novel ones that have been fabricated. The result of this effort is a collection that this instructor employs regularly and that audience members can understand quickly and remember easily.

Presenter: Wang, CH [Arcadia University]
Time: 11:14 - 11:26 am (Paper presentation)


Preparing Medical Librarians to Understand and Teach Research Data Management
As part of a NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative to provide research data management (RDM) training, a two-tier online curriculum was developed that focuses on RDM best practices for bench and clinical sciences. Two sets of online course modules were developed, the first focuses on training librarians in research data management and the second provides a toolkit for librarians to use for training researchers in RDM at their own institutions.

Presenters: Read, KB; Larson, C; Young, SY; Yacobucci, K; Paul, S; Gillespie, C; Surkis, A [NYU School of Medicine]
Time: 11:27 - 11:39 am (Paper presentation)


The Librarian’s role in implementing a Flipped Classroom Curriculum for an Orthopedic Residency Program
This project describes the unique skill set a trained Medical Librarian can bring to the development and implementation of a Flipped Classroom Curriculum to an orthopaedic residency program. Our primary objective is to provide resources and references for orthopaedic faculty members while simultaneously building an enduring orthopaedic program of didactics on an e-learning platform.

Presenters: Roberts, T; Felix, K; Goto, R [Hospital for Special Surgery]
Time: 11:40 - 11:52 am (Paper presentation)


One systematic review software to rule them all -- NOT!
Although librarians have been involved in conducting database searches for systematic reviews, their advice on other aspects of a systematic review, such as the selection of systematic review software to manage search results, offers valuable guidance to researchers.

Time: 11:53 - 11:58 am (Lightning Talk)


Learning 2: Librarians as Teachers


4:00 - 5:00 pm


Library Related Instruction and Services Tailored for Physician Assistant Students: A Collaboration
Physician Assistant faculty members noted a need for library-related resource training for their first year students that went beyond the traditional orientation. While standard literature search options were demonstrated previously, targeted evidence-based practice content was needed as the students transitioned from didactic instruction to clinical practice. Librarians and physician assistant faculty worked collaboratively to develop lectures, demonstrations, and assignments to meet this need.

Presenter: Childs, GC [Drexel University]
Time: 4:01 - 4:13 pm (Paper presentation)


Cultural Competence and Culturally Competent Library Service: A Survey of Health Sciences Librarians

This study investigated how health sciences libraries provide services to lead, promote, and support initiatives in cultural competence in health professions education or patient care and to examine health sciences librarians’ opinions on cultural competence in relation to library services and professional development. The study serves as needs assessment for our goal to develop a continuing education course on cultural competency for health sciences librarians.

This is a quantitative research design. Data has been collected with a survey questionnaire including eliciting demographic information, addressing health sciences libraries’ status in provision of culturally competent services and librarians’ perceptions of the importance of cultural competence. The questionnaire was pilot tested with a convenience sample of health sciences librarians to enhance the validity and then administered via SurveyMonkey to MEDLIB-L subscribers of the Medical Library Association. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the collected data.

The survey results revealed that most of respondents (175, 99.1%) indicated the importance of provision of culturally competent library services. The majority of respondents (162, 93.1%) perceived the importance of cultural competence for health sciences librarians. 81 (46.3%) respondents reported to have training and 87 (49.7) indicated no past training experience in cultural competence. When asked about their interest in taking a CE course in cultural competence, 139 (79.4%) expressed their interest.

The research findings contributed to our understanding what types of library services are provided to develop or support cultural competency initiatives and how health sciences librarians perceive cultural competence for librarians. The results are useful for developing future continuing education courses tailored to health sciences librarians in improving their cultural competency and expanding library services to support any cultural competency initiatives in health professions education or patient care in their own institutions.  

Presenter: Zhang, Y.; Mi, M. [Rutgers]

Time: 4:15 - 4:27 pm (Paper presentation)

Experiences of Adult Learners in Health Professions Education
In adult education theory, adult learners are defined by their attitude towards learning rather than their biological age. The purpose of this review is to ascertain how adult learners are defined in various areas of health professions education (HPE), what questions they have been asked about their prior life experiences and how they fare in terms of engagement with traditional age students, fellow mature students, residents and faculty instructors.

Presenter: Alpi, KM [North Carolina State University]
Time: 4:29 - 4:41 pm (Paper presentation)


Mobile Technology Use in Nursing Education: A Longitundinal Study
Nursing education is a widespread method to train new nurses and update the skills of existing nurses. Evidence-based practice (EBP) is an essential component of current nursing education and practice. However, Benner, Sutphen, Leonard, & Day (2010) observed that “nursing education is sharply divided by location” and that students “need more connections between what is taught in the classroom and their clinical experiences” (63-65). With most information literacy instruction traditionally taking place in the classroom environment, students struggle to apply these skills to everyday practice. As nursing students transition into traditional practice, “graduates continue to leave their educational experience with negative attitudes toward research along with perceptions that EBP takes too much time and cannot be realistically implemented in real-world clinical practice settings” (Melnyk et al., 2012 , 415). Therefore, exploration of EBP experiences in clinical education can help librarians find opportunities to bridge classroom skills into practice.
