Handbook of Clinical Librarianship

The MLA Books Panel seeks an author/editor for a book on clinical librarianship.  The information included should provide starting points and basic resources for librarians interested in pursuing a clinical librarian position or starting a clinical librarian service at their institution.

Topics could include

*         What does a clinical librarian do?

*         How to prepare; knowledge required; learning on the job

*         Rounding, morning reports and case conferences – how to prepare, finding one’s place on the team, acting as a patient advocate; tips; answering questions at the point of care

*         Demonstrating value to health care providers, the institution and the library

*         Finding information for patients; providing information prescriptions

*         Participating in journal clubs

*         Promoting clinical librarian services

*         Expert searching including clinical guideline development

*         Benefits and challenges (including emotional ones) of being a clinical librarian

*         Ethical and legal aspects of working in a clinical environment (e.g., compliance with privacy legislation, need for vaccinations, etc.)

If you are interested in serving as the author or editor of the entire book, please complete the Step One form available at https://www.mlanet.org/page/publications/bookproposals.html#submit and send it to Martha Lara at lara@mail.mlahq.org<mailto:lara@mail.mlahq.org>

I am picking brains for the names of people in the Chicago area who you (librarians) think would be good to participate on a panel to share their person experiences on how they discover and consume the information they need to do their jobs. We are interested in nurses, allied health, medical students, nursing students, etc. We want people who are engaging and consumers of information.

Please read the information below and respond directly to me, at kraftm@CCF.ORG, with suggestions of names of people we can approach. Stay tuned, because MLA will soon be sending out a call for librarians to participate in this workshop.

The Medical Library Association is hosting a two-day thought leadership workshop in late September in Chicago (Sept. 27-28) for twenty nationally prominent medical librarians and twenty medical publishers. The workshop’s theme is “Meeting the Evolving Information Needs of Library Stakeholders.” The program will feature keynote addresses, a panel, and small-group discussions.  For the panel, the program planners are seeking four to five Chicago area health care professionals or students each of whom would be willing to share his or her personal experience in a 15-minute presentation covering how they discover and consume the information they need to do their jobs — what search engines, websites and apps they routinely go to, the devices they use (laptop, tablet, phone) when and where, the extent to which they consult printed journals and books, and how they utilize the resources of their library.

“Aligning the Three Pillars of Effective Instruction: Outcomes, Teaching, and Assessment for Health Sciences Librarians”

Thursday, July 12, 1:00-2:30 PM CDT

Overview

You may be assessing your instruction in a way that does not really tell you if your teaching is effective. The MLA webinar “Aligning the Three Pillars of Effective Instruction” will show you how to write specific, meaningful objectives that you can use to create informative assessments. Participants will examine examples of good learning outcomes, learn why it makes sense to assess performance
rather than perception, and explore performance assessment measures. There will be time for participants to ask questions about their courses.
Register here: http://www.medlib-ed.org/products/1737/aligning-the-three-pillars-of-effective-instruction-outcomes-teaching-and-assessment-for-health-sciences-librarians.

Presenter
Jill Boruff, AHIP, has been a health sciences liaison librarian at the McGill University Library, Montreal, QC, Canada, since 2007. She has published on integrating evidence-based practice and information literacy skills in teaching physical and occupational therapy students.​
