Marketing And Outreach Program Showcase, Gary Marks, Hilary Westgate, Denise I. O'Shea, Kim Reamer, Tara Maharjan, Allison Piazza, Kate Hossain

Denise O'Shea

As marketing and outreach increasingly become core values for librarians, we are always looking for fresh ideas on how to best reach our users. Come and hear from a varied panel of academic librarians about ways to market your resources, services, and events/programs. Each panelist will be discussing a specific marketing or outreach program that their library has initiated recently. We hope to showcase the great work that NJ academic libraries are doing and inspire you to try something new at your library!

Using A Poster And Survey Model To Reach New Heights At Library Orientation, Gary S. Atwood, Nancy Bianchi

University Libraries Faculty and Staff Publications

Background : Although active learning techniques have the potential to enhance the learner’s experience, it can be difficult to efficiently and effectively incorporate them into unstructured events outside of the classroom such as an orientation fair. This presentation will show how we took a successful poster and survey activity used by academic medical librarians at a community career fair and then adapted it for graduate medical education orientation fairs. We designed a simple poster along with a short survey to help us actively connect with small groups of new medical residents while introducing them to library resources and services.

Organizing Your Organization: Taxonomy And Organizational Schemes In A Health System Institutional Repository, Daina Dickman, Heather J. Martin

Books, Presentations, Posters, Etc.

Background: In the development of a new institutional repository, library staff at a large health system were faced with building an organizational structure that would be meaningful to both internal and external users. The health system context meant unique challenges designing a taxonomy that supported end users as well as institutional goals and branding. Health systems have unique user needs for specialized collections and organizational schemes. With a comparatively large volume of items being added there are also concerns with the backend structures to accommodate the institutions’ large research output.

Description: This large, recently merged health system did not already ...

Books, Presentations, Posters, Etc.

Background: In January 2018, library services at Providence Health/Swedish and St. Joseph Health merged to form a single, unified system, incorporating nine libraries and sixteen full-time staff.

Our merged library serves patrons in seven states, and much of our work, including communication with patrons and each other, is conducted over email.

Description: We chose a tool, REDCap, early in our process. REDCap is easy to use and allowed ...

Institutional Repository Workflow, Project Management, And Outreach In A Remote/Online Library Environment, Daina Dickman

Books, Presentations, Posters, Etc.

In 2018 Providence St. Joseph Health launched an institutional repository, primarily staffed by a librarian located in Oregon and a library assistant located in Montana with occasional help from other Library Services staff. Workflow and communication standards had to be created that would allow library staff in multiple locations and time zones to seamlessly launch, populate, and manage the institutional repository. Outreach, instruction, and promotion tactics had to also be created to reach researchers and clinical staff across six states and 100+ locations.

Comparing And Contrasting Medical Institutional Repositories With Other Academic Irs: Results Of Two Research Studies, Lisa A. Palmer, Daniel G. Kipnis, Judy Luther

Library Publications and Presentations

This poster presents findings from two research studies about institutional repositories (IRs): one survey to members of the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries, and the other an open survey with primary responses from academic libraries in North America. The poster compares and contrasts several findings, including: Are academic medical institutional repositories utilizing different software platforms than other academic IRs? Are academic medical IRs staffed differently than other academic IRs? In this complex scholarly communication environment, are IR managers considering plans to migrate to new platforms? This poster explores findings from the two surveys to help capture a current snapshot ...


Lgbtqia-R: Creating A Diverse And Inclusive Medical Collection At A Public Metropolitan University, Heidi Blackburn, Omer Farooq 2019 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Lgbtqia-R: Creating A Diverse And Inclusive Medical Collection At A Public Metropolitan University, Heidi Blackburn, Omer Farooq

Heidi Blackburn

Information about the LGBTQIA population is difficult to collect because of the sensitive nature of the topic of sexual preference and gender identity. This paper examines our weeding project and collection development efforts to provide health care information for the LGBTQIA community at a Midwestern metropolitan university. The findings conclude that our collection was not providing sufficient, up-to-date health information for the personal and professional information needs of our patrons in the R-RZ Library of Congress range. The weeding process, strategies for working with department faculty, and the implications for an intersectional medical collection are discussed.

The Goldilocks Method: Demonstrating Your Value In Small, Medium, And Large Bites, Heather J. Martin 2019 Providence St. Joseph Health

The Goldilocks Method: Demonstrating Your Value In Small, Medium, And Large Bites, Heather J. Martin

Books, Presentations, Posters, Etc.

Background: In an era of financial constraint hospital libraries are facing closer scrutiny and must prove their value in order to survive. Leadership at a large health system library found the traditional written annual report lacked the impact needed to capture the attention and the imagination of administration. Taking different approaches over the years, this library has found a solution that is “just right”, creating three very different documents – small, medium, and large – to demonstrate its worth.

Description: Library leadership moved away from the traditional written annual report toward a one-page infographic that depicted the library’s scope, scale, and ...
