Knowledge Is Health Interprofessional Partnerships To Promote Health Literacy, Nancy Henderson, Michele Spatz

Knowledge is Health: Interprofessional Partnerships to Promote Health Literacy

An important aim of NN/LM Region 6 Regional Medical Library is to support collaborations in the Pacific Northwest that foster effective use of current, high quality, information and decision support resources by health professionals, by students in the health professions, and by patients in order to treat commonly encountered medical conditions in rural and underserved populations in Oregon. This project supports that aim through two overarching goals: 1) promoting appropriate use of NLM resources in interprofessional education and practice in Oregon; and 2) creating strong collaborative relationships to improve access and use of the latest evidence on diabetes prevention ...


Do You Know What They Don’T Know? : How Students Conduct Research, Peggy L. Nuhn, Min Tong Sep 2016

Do You Know What They Don’T Know? : How Students Conduct Research, Peggy L. Nuhn, Min Tong

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

When developing student research assignments, many faculty may make the assumption that the current generation of computer-savvy students will intuitively determine how to effectively use library resources, and incorporate that information into a thoughtful and properly cited research paper -- after all, students frequently express a high level of confidence in their research abilities. But is this realistic? Do students understand the difference between a keyword and a subject search and how that understanding can help them? Do students really understand that research is a process rather than a scavenger hunt?

Any faculty member who has received student research papers which ...

The Devaluation Of The Library Degree_Konata.Pdf, La Loria Konata

La Loria Konata

As a seventeen year veteran librarian, I've often thought about the skills needed to be an effective librarian. In recent years, some libraries have changed the academic requirement of what qualifies someone to be a professional librarian. Instead of the Masters of Library Science degree which has been the terminal degree to work as a professional librarian, another advanced degree is being used to fulfill that requirement. Here are my thoughts on the matter in this working paper.


Fosces: Adding Another Library Tile To The Medical School Mosaic, Alexandra Gomes, Thomas Harrod May 2016

Fosces: Adding Another Library Tile To The Medical School Mosaic, Alexandra Gomes, Thomas Harrod

Himmelfarb Library Faculty Posters and Presentations

The 2014 launch of the revised medical school curriculum provided new opportunities for librarians to collaborate with faculty. Due to past informatics instruction in the first year curriculum, we were invited to expand this content as part of a new formative Objective Structured Clinical Examination (FOSCE) initiative. This poster will describe the development and implementation of the FOSCE informatics curriculum.

In FOSCEs, small groups of students rotated through simulated patient encounters in order to demonstrate their clinical knowledge and skills. Due to simulation center logistics, students alternated between skills demonstration and informatics activities. The informatics component consisted of fifty minute ...


Minority Librarians In Higher Education: A Critical Race Theory Analysis, Kelli Johnson Jan 2016

Minority Librarians In Higher Education: A Critical Race Theory Analysis, Kelli Johnson

Theses, Dissertations and Capstones

The library profession as a whole is predominantly white with a large discrepancy between the percentage of minorities in the United States in general and the percentage of professional librarians who are minorities. Despite past recruitment efforts, there remains a dearth of minority librarians in higher education and the reasons for this remain unclear. The purpose of this qualitative study was to investigate minority librarian experiences in higher education and their perceptions of supports and barriers encountered in becoming and being professional librarians. Five themes emerged from the data. The first theme pertained to the spirit of service and activism ...


The Ultimate Irony: An Information Age Without Librarians, Dawn S. Ady Jan 2016

The Ultimate Irony: An Information Age Without Librarians, Dawn S. Ady

UNF Graduate Theses and Dissertations

In this thesis, the continuing relevance of the profession of librarianship in the digital age is explored and assessed. After defining the library as information itself, the thesis establishes that electronic formats replacing printed matter is not an indication of libraries becoming extinct. Further, various aspects of the profession of librarianship—including library ethics, information extraction skills, and information literacy instruction—are discussed. Additionally, the potential for librarians to play an important role in a largely “jobless” society (as forecast by some experts and scholars as well as in a recent Oxford University study) is evaluated. Finally, a proposal is ...
