Medical Institutional Repositories In A Changing Scholarly Communication Landscape, Daniel G. Kipnis, Lisa A. Palmer 2018 Rowan University

Medical Institutional Repositories In A Changing Scholarly Communication Landscape, Daniel G. Kipnis, Lisa A. Palmer

Library Publications and Presentations

An institutional repository (IR) is an online digital archive that organizes, preserves, and provides access to the educational, scholarly, and research output of an institution. Medical libraries began establishing IRs more than a decade ago and these repositories have become an important component of scholarly communication outreach. In an article in the 2014 Against the Grain health and biomedical sciences special issue, Palmer described institutional repository services provided by health sciences libraries, and the barriers and challenges to providing those services. What has changed since 2014? What is the current landscape for repositories in medical and health sciences libraries?


Librarians Building Innovative Technologies: Creating It Ourselves, Tiffney Gipson, Rebecca Morgan, Lauren E. Robinson 2018 University of Louisville

Librarians Building Innovative Technologies: Creating It Ourselves, Tiffney Gipson, Rebecca Morgan, Lauren E. Robinson

Lauren E. Robinson

As library users increasingly rely on mobile applications and responsive websites to access information, it has become imperative that libraries accommodate these needs. The tasks of building this type of resource may seem too expensive, time-consuming, and require the outsourcing of technology development. The presenters will showcase how this can be achieved on a small scale using existing staff, innovative funding resources, and affordable training. The poster will outline the presenters’ experiences designing a conceptual discovery framework, interactive website, and iOS application for health sciences students. More specifically, our app will address training students to answer clinical queries using library ...

Usability Study To Evaluate A Transformed Library Website, Lauren E. Robinson, Jessica Petrey

Lauren E. Robinson

In fiscal year 2016-17, University of Louisville Libraries began the transition from Plone Content Management System (CMS) to Springshare’s LibGuides CMS for websites hosting and management. This transition provided Kornhauser Health Sciences Library the opportunity to fully redesign our website to be more user-friendly, efficient, and visually appealing. To evaluate the efficacy of the new website in meeting these goals, we designed a usability study examining both versions of the site for efficiency and accuracy of information retrieval. Approved by the IRB, this usability study was primarily administered in survey format; as participants from multiple health science disciplines completed ...

Evidence-based medicine (EBM) is a systematic approach to clinical decision-making, where medical practitioners use clinical evidence from current research to decide the best course of treatment. EBM is an essential concept in ​medical education, and medical librarians play ​an instrumental role in training students to ​answer clinical questions. ​This framework was designed to help​ students structure and categorize their​ clinical questions, so that they find the ​answers needed to determine ​treatment and/or outcomes. The framework is stage one of a three ​stage project, which will include ​an interactive webpage, and ​iOS application.

Macro-Level Diffusion Of A Methodological Knowledge Innovation: Research Synthesis Methods, 1972-2011, Laura Sheble 2017 Wayne State University

Macro-Level Diffusion Of A Methodological Knowledge Innovation: Research Synthesis Methods, 1972-2011, Laura Sheble

School of Information Sciences Faculty Research Publications

Use of research synthesis methods has contributed to changes in research practices. In disciplinary literatures, authors indicate motivations to use the methods include needs to (a) translate research-based knowledge to inform practice and policy decisions, and (b) integrate relatively large and diverse knowledge bases to increase the generality of results and yield novel insights or explanations. This review presents two histories of the diffusion of research synthesis methods: a narrative history based primarily in the health and social sciences; and a bibliometric overview across science broadly. Engagement with research synthesis was strongly correlated with evidence-based practice (EBP), and moderately with ...

Challenges And Opportunities: One Academic Library, Seven Hospitals And A Consortialmove, Melanie Mcgurr, Demetria Patrick

Research

This presentation explores a three-phase project that involved switching from a shared server hosted in a state consortia to a hosted service with Innovative Interfaces, along with a long overdue upgrade to Sierra. Phase I and II were the most challenging and work intensive and involved the most planning by the NEOMED staff. These challenges also brought our problem areas within the consortia to light. Throughout phase I and II, we improved our communication, stressed the importance of autonomy at the hospitals, and encouraged the staff to work directly with their IT and vendors. We created checklists for the hospitals ...
