Impact Of Librarian Mediated Literature Review Services, Heather Martin, Carrie Grinstead, Danielle Linden

Providence Nursing Research Conference 2023 – Present

Background:

The Providence Library team has not had a systematic way to gather feedback from our users regarding our literature review service. While we receive many grateful responses to our literature searches, we need more detailed, consistent information about our impacts to inform leadership and improve our services. Previous studies have documented the importance of library services in hospitals, and the impact librarians make on quality patient care. As a small team serving a large health system, we need to carefully evaluate the effects of our work, share successes, and gather information that will help us improve. We conducted this …

The Pornography Industry's Disinformation Campaign On Addiction Recovery Resources, Darryl Mead 2023 The Reward Foundation

The Pornography Industry's Disinformation Campaign On Addiction Recovery Resources, Darryl Mead

Dignity: A Journal of Analysis of Exploitation and Violence

As pornography became increasingly popular online, many unsuspecting consumers reported adverse effects. These included sexual dysfunctions, such as lack of response with real partners, delayed ejaculation, erectile difficulties, and sexual compulsivity. Some pornography consumers began congregating in online self-help portals (forums and websites) to assist one another in quitting or reducing problematic pornography use. The popularity of the self-help resources and their potential to dampen the profits of a lucrative industry resulted in disinformation campaigns run by individuals connected to the pornography industry. In this article, I examine how a paper containing significant inaccuracies about the people organising the online …

Information Literacy Curriculum Mapping In The Health Sciences, Devon Olson, Sandi Bates, Shannon Yarbrough, Sara Westall, Megan Keely Carroll Denis, Montanna Barnett

Librarian Publications

Instructional medical librarians are uniquely positioned in a context governed by multiple instructional frameworks emerging from librarianship and the professions with which they liaise. Yet very little literature exists on medical librarians’ use of curriculum mapping to align their instruction with these frameworks. This review illuminates the current state of curriculum mapping in medical librarianship.We searched five bibliographic databases for articles published between 2010 and August 2021 and centred on information literacy(IL)curriculum mapping within a health sciences university context.

Resiliency Strategies For Brightly Burning Librarians, Christine Andresen, Irene Lubker

MUSC Conference Presentations

Purpose: Librarianship is a helping profession which means caring is one of our superpowers, yet also makes us more likely to cross our own boundaries in our efforts to support our users, leaving us vulnerable to burnout. Our best intentions, fears of missing out, and need to prove our value often drive us to the limits of our abilities to sustain the levels of service we provide. This presentation will prepare librarians with strategies to promote overall well-being and foster resiliency.

Description: Health sciences librarians often happily agree to new, exciting opportunities, only to find that our best intentions end …

I Heard You Like Posters: Adventures In Free Research Poster Printing, Rowan Marye

Library Faculty Posters and Presentations

The Ische Library started to offer the service in Fall of 2019. It did not take long for word of the service to get out, and during the first few months, the library handled a respectable volume of requests. In 2020, COVID-19 struck and almost all poster printing halted. Throughout the remainder of 2020, and the whole of 2021, the cancellation of conferences, and students attending remotely ensured that we did not have any external posters to print. Library staff printed a poster or two each month, to created internal signage, and just to keep the printer in working order. …


Building A Campus Art Collection In An Institutional Repository, Jennifer K. Lloyd 2023 LSU Health Science Center - New Orleans

Building A Campus Art Collection In An Institutional Repository, Jennifer K. Lloyd

Library Faculty Posters and Presentations

Objective: To build a database of campus art to help preserve campus history and to create a record of where items are currently located (or when they were last seen). Methods: Using our campus’s instance of BePress Institutional Repository, I built an online collection of images of artwork housed on campus, mostly portraits of historical faculty members. Historical information is gathered about each individual, or the piece of art, and then added to the database. Statistics on usage are gathered and new pieces to add are being identified monthly. Results: The collection of art is being used at an astonishingly …
