Health science librarians are invited to participate in Biomedical and Health Research Data Management Training for Librarians, sponsored by the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Training Office (NTO). The course is an 8-week online class with engaging lessons and practical activities, and provides basic knowledge and skills for librarians interested in helping patrons manage their research data. Participants will then complete a capstone project at the end of the course, and the experience will culminate in a Capstone Summit at NIH on April 10-11, 2018. The major goal of this course is to provide an introduction to data issues and policies in support of developing and implementing or enhancing research data management training and services at your institution. This material is essential for decision-making and implementation of these programs, particularly instructional and reference services. The course topics include an overview of data ...
While pursuing my Masters in Library and Information Science I have noticed a disconnect between the book librarians and the tech librarians. Admittedly, when I first got to GSLIS I did not see myself as a tech person. However, my attitude since then has changed. I have realized that all librarians are or have the potential to be tech people. In fact, I think anyone at all is a tech person because it is so entrenched in our daily lives. I think the idea that only certain people are tech people is alienating girls, people of color, and other marginalized groups from careers in science and technology. And this trend is creating a highly stratified and unjust social system. Our perception of tech people is usually white, upper middle-class, heterosexual men. This group has historically been in power and will continue to be if they are the only ones designing the technologies that everyone uses. The goal of my presentation is to call librarians to challenge how they view themselves and ...

This CL intervention demonstrated that there is perceived value in the local production of evidence summaries to address practitioners information needs. Interest in the CL role spread beyond the pilot areas and requests for summaries were received from Trust senior management and other corporate services. Our findings suggest that a CL can be an effective knowledge broker, facilitating the interaction between producers and users of research.16 The nature of the requests for evidence was also illuminating; the large number of requests relating to information needs other than treatment strategies (e.g. aetiology) is a novel observation. This contrasts with findings from a previous study17 that the number of treatment-related questions outweighed those relating to other clinical areas (e.g. diagnosis). Additionally, a previous systematic review18 highlighted how previous discussions of the CL role have concentrated on clinician decision-making and patient care. However, the diversity of the ...
Research4Lifes global testimonies from librarians in developing countries highlight the important role they have in building institutional capacities and aiding in vital research From information literacy training to building infrastructure and outreach, librarians are critical to building a healthy research culture in the developing world and they are often the unsung heroes in the research ecosystem. For this reason, Research4Life has commissioned a special booklet, Unsung Heroes, Stories from the Library - narratives from individuals around the world who have in reality become the unsung heroes of research in their institutions.. Every day, these librarians train, assist and empower faculty, students, doctors, and staff in accessing and using vital information available through Research4Life and other resources, impacting not just the individuals work, but the extended community around them.. These stories were chosen from a total 45 case studies which were reviewed by a Research4life ...

2012 At its June 2012 meeting the Council of the American Library Association passed a resolution in support of school libraries and librarians.

The full text of the resolution is included below.
This months post in our series of guest academic librarian bloggers is from Debra Kolah, head of the User Experience (UX) Office at Fondren Library, Rice University in Houston, Texas. She also blogs at the Effervescent Librarian.. A 1947 film located in the online Wayback Archive, The Librarian, urges young people to become librarians, and features a traditional library, and lots of books, and no technology - not even the early technologies of the library world. It stresses you must have two things to be a librarian: a love of books, and a love of people. Ten years later, the classic 1957 film Desk Set, starring Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, pits a traditional librarian against a suit from IBM. It is his task, as an expert of electronic brains, to automate and replace the jobs of the reference librarians at a television studio. I love these examples of librarianship, not just because they are quaint and outdated, but because, at the time, they spoke truth. A love of books got you far ...

Faced with tight budgets, how can libraries creatively use staff to implement technology projects? When tackling the Web site redesign project, the Columbus Metropolitan Library implemented a Virtual Librarian project team. Three public service staff members worked in the IT department 28 hours a week for a year. The split positions allowed the completion of project work, but more importantly built a bridge between public service and technology. The Virtual Librarians have acted as ambassadors, challenging library staff to look at customer service in new ways. They illustrated how to break the mold of traditional staffing patterns and tap into the potential of staff in implementing technology projects. Using concepts from the book Art of Innovation by Tom Kelley, the Virtual Librarians bring energy and fun into implementing technology projects ...

Damn LJs Blog Interface…But I have the rest of the post, saved…arg. its jsut bad reposting like this all the time…. I saw another survey on Library Journal comparing the average salary for men in this field to the average salary for women. Men: ~46,000; Women ~41,000. The reason behind this disparity is already known by avid AL readers as the Girls Club Syndrome. In short, this phenomenon occurs when librarians gather around the water cooler and in the break room and generally anywhere there is a place to chat. However, since this is a Female dominated profession, these groups stare down their noses at the male librarians, as they are either below them, because they hold a womans job, or against them, because they hold a womans job. As such, these male librarians have nothing left to do but focus on their work and either go up the ladder into management or progress to a much better job elsewhere. Either way, this average mans salary goes UP and the womens salary stays ...

If carrying an Axe in Tragic circumstances (i.e. witness to things being subject to inevitable loss) then you may enter a screaming fit and hew your Axe into the face of Chronos. Chronos is currently incarnated,( in the manner of Moby Dick) as the people/things pissing you off at this particular moment. (Its an Ahab thing). The Axe will wipe their memories. By smashing their fucking brains out of their head. Every blow is to the head of humanoid enemies, d20 damage each time. One fight per game. Add one for each time you roll this. Any survivors suffer amnesia. If you are not carrying an Axe, why not? Not even a small one? A tomahawk? What kind of librarian are you? ...

Our expert searchers have learnt a lot about drug nomenclature over the years, which may help you if youre trying to search for drug-related information; here we summarise a presentation given by one of our Clinical Librarians, Tom Roper, to our Searching and Teaching Peer Group.. Every drug has an IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry) name, for example N-(4-hydroxyphenyl)ethanamide, an approved (official or generic) name from WHO, its recommended international non--proprietary name (rINN) and/or a national name. a British approved name (BAN) on in the USA a United States adopted name (USAN) e.g. Paracetamol, Acetaminophen. Then there are proprietary (brand or trade) names: e.g Tylenol. And then they may have nicknames coined by busy clinicians to describe drugs frequently adminstered, e.g. taz for tazocin (properly piperacillin/tazobactam).. Drug names may seem confusing, to say nothing of being hard to pronounce, but there is a logic to their structure. All drug names have ...

Childrens librarians try hard. They buy the best books, attend the best workshops and conferences, plan and deliver the best story times, read the best and latest professional literature, incorporate best practices. But they may only see a child for thirty to forty-five minutes per week or less. Childrens librarians can model, provide information and tips, and recommend books and activities, but they cant do it all. They dont have the concentrated time with the children to work on pre-reading skills that paves the way for brain development in young children.

Kind Reader sent a story about what has to be one of the most ridiculous encounters ever to take place in an academic library. The short version is that 5-6 protesters invaded a room in the library at UC-Santa Cruz that had been booked by the College Republicans for a discussion group. The protesters proceeded to yell at people until some of them were arrested for disturbing the peace. In the middle of it all was a librarian trying to calm things down, and who displayed a remarkable poise in dealing with the situation, despite one of the protesters yelling at her to show her political leanings and kick out the peaceful College Republicans. We know this because theres a video, and its a doozy. When I viewed the video, it was at City on a Phil; October 18 at 9:44am. Its pretty stunning to watch a 20-year-old woman make such an ass of herself. Perhaps readers will disagree, but heres how the situation looked to me. The College Republicans, which I assume is a ...

You may have seen the letter to the editor that Eli and I wrote talking about the restaurant review section of the conference issue of American Libraries. We said something to the effect that calling a place with entrees $20 and under low priced [with no lower option] seemed to miss the boat in terms of the budget that many librarians are working with. One of the reasons that another run for Council does not appeal to me is not only because of the cash involved in six trips in three years, but the fact that discussion of the high prices of Council participation on Council lists can be met with the response that maybe you shouldnt be on Council until you can afford to be. Maybe theyre right and maybe theyre not, but the presumption itself raises my hackles.. That said, Im not poor. Ive got a job that pays, health insurance and rent that I can afford, almost no debt, and income potential from several sources. I own a house and I have a good education that, barring disaster, cements my ...

Librarians and massive open online courses (MOOC), collections collisions, and a controversial keynote were some of the highlights of the 33rd annual Charleston Conference. Held November 6-9, the conference drew 1,500 attendees, yielding an increase of 300-plus people from the previous years event. Conference-goers chose among 200 concurrent sessions and visited 100-plus companies in the vendor showcase. Librarians in the Post-Digital Information Era Jenica P. Rogers, director of libraries at the State University of New York-Potsdam, keynoted the conference with a stirring call to action for librarians. She began by saying she was speaking to and on behalf of librarians, not publishers or vendors. Rogers was most concerned about vendor practices that stifle free expression in attempts to control the marketplace. ...
MD: I thought it would be wonderful for my students to have a book club, and having someone from outside the school involved made it more exciting for them. I also thought you would have new ideas for books and activities. Since I dont work with other librarians on a day-to-day basis now, or have access to many professional magazines, I find that public librarians are more in touch with current titles and trends. I have to admit that I was hoping that you would have a budget for multiple copies of the book club books, since my book budget is so limited, and you did. But I swear I am not just collaborating with you for your book budget! You bring so much enthusiasm and patience to the book club, and I am so grateful for all the preparation you do -- and the treats you bring my students. They really benefit from the book club and look forward to it all month long ...

You are an information professional. And you have paid your federal income taxes. Now you are wondering not what you can do for your country, but what your country can do for you. As it happens, Uncle Sam is in the information business just like you and has free resources to share with librarians, web developers, publishers, archivists, and other organizers of knowledge.. For this months column, I scanned the federal web and cherry-picked some sites concerned with information management (defined broadly). The resulting list links to a diverse selection of works - thesauri, reference training scripts, web design guides, and more - available from the U.S. government. Some of the resources are products of deliberate public outreach efforts, while others were developed for in-house use but are of interest to a broader audience. I have grouped the resources into the six categories below: ...
One of the frustrations of being a librarian -- right up there with irritating patrons and not being allowed to drink coffee at work -- is the occupational stereotyping. Like nuns and teachers, librarians tend to be depicted in books and movies as elderly spinsters, rigid and frigid. More recently, in a predictable attempt to subvert convention, the slutty librarian trope has emerged -- young, hot-blooded, yet not exempt from the cats-eye glasses. As a librarian, its hard to see this as much of an improvement. Everyone has a librarian fantasy, asserts the librarian-narrator of Aimee Benders story Quiet Please, from her collection The Girl in the Flammable Skirt, and then she sets out to prove herself correct, propositioning the patrons at the circulation desk and taking them into the back room. There is, naturally, eyewear to be torn off, long hair to be let down, and an overpowering smell in the mysterious and otherwise off-limits area behind the desk. Nothing so exciting happened to me ...

Librarians conduct research using surveys to determine what factors give recent library & information science graduates a better chance at obtaining an academic position.
Sometimes I feel as though I need to know about everything. When I teach an information literacy session, I feel ill-prepared if I dont know about the topic of the class. As a result, I have learned a little bit about a lot of things over the past couple of years: Green fluorescent protein Markovnikov…

Beguiled by Bananas: A retrospective study of the usage & breadth of patron vs. librarian acquired ebook collections Jason Price, Head of Collections & Acquisitions John McDonald, Director, Information & Bibliographic Management and Faculty Relations Claremont Colleges Library, Claremont University Consortium Charleston Conference 2009 Abstract Library acquisitions lore contains a cautionary tale of a patron in a demand--‐ driven environment who spent a huge chunk of the library budget on ebooks about bananas. This story and others like it have been used to perpetuate the argument that demand--‐ driven acquisition will result in collections that dont appeal to a broad audience or are otherwise unbalanced. We apply post--‐ acquisition usage data from multiple libraries to test the hypothesis that patron--‐ acquired versus librarian--‐ acquired collections have different usage profiles. In addition, we analyze their subject profiles to evaluate collection breadth and balance. Our ...
I think most parents have a reasonable expectation that if their child goes to the library, they won\t be able to pull up pornography,\ said House Speaker Brent Siegrist, a Council Bluffs Republican.. Siegrist said the issue ties in with Gov. Tom Vilsack\s initiative to designate money for schools to use Internet filters.. \I think without a doubt that the vast majority of Iowans don\t have a problem with Internet filters at the library,\ he said.. One librarian says the idea sets \a really dangerous precedent.\. ...

Saying they wanted a stronger voice, a majority of librarians at the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County voted Monday night in favor of forming a union.. The vote was 74-65 in favor; 141 employees were eligible to vote. Two did not vote. You gotta love the last sentence of the article which states, Library officials congratulated the union, while also noting that they opposed unionization. Heres the story from the Cincinnati Enquirer.. ...

Oh, and one question about Stone: he seemed almost scared to go to Paris on his own. And I get what he was saying about obligations holding one back from doing things like running off to Paris, and how, after a while, you just get in the habit of thinking you cant go (Im in the same boat right now). But, Stone has been to Paris already - and so many other places since becoming a Librarian. AND he has the door to walk through - so he doesnt have to get x-rayed at the airport, have his large bottle of shampoo confiscated, and sit on a plane for fourteen hours. I could see him having this travel issue at the beginning of the series, but now, after all hes done and all hes seen and everywhere hes been, it doesnt make as much sense. Am I missing something? Is there another reason hes gets that nervous, tentative look before stepping through the door? Is it about him going there alone? Or specifically about going there without Mabel because she died ...

In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: A g r e e m e n t s u p p l e m e n t s 331 Author Jocelyn Clark Agreement DesCription Meeting spaces are the places where people can come together to hold a conversation, share ideas, and create knowledge. The librarians role in facilitation of these meeting spaces can take a number of forms. We can design good physical spaces, create virtual spaces, help people to use these spaces, and help people hold the meetings. There are facilitation methods for the spaces and the meetings themselves. Mostly I have discussed the spaces because the discussion of means of facilitation is a huge topic. Initially, I did some brainstorming of all the different kinds of spaces for people to meet. There are dozens, and they can be defined in different ways. Some are formal and some are informal, virtual or physical, voicebased , text-based, video-based, and so on. The rough division falls along physical spaces versus virtual (or distance) spaces. ...
