Evidence shows that there are marked health disparities between those living in rural areas versus their urban counterparts. Not only do rural residents suffer from higher incidence of chronic illness, they also have limited access to primary care services and are more likely to be uninsured or under-insured. This session will describe hallmarks of rural America, identify other access challenges of living in rural communities, and equip participants with tools to ue in service the health information needs of those living in rural communities.

Perspectives in Research Data Management: Workshop

Contact: Alisa Surkis and Kevin Read
Contact: - New York and New Jersey region
Research data management is of increasing interest to librarians, yet there are a number of barriers, both internal and external, to establishing services in this area. This intermediate course will focus on practical tasks and discussion to gain a deeper understanding of a medical library's role in research data management. The class will include individual and group work to guide attendees through the first steps of building a research data management service, including discussions of possible avenues of outreach to researchers, exercises in building data management plans, and an environmental scan of current practices in medical libraries.

This is a CE activity associated with the NN/LM MCR's Online Interactive Professional Development Experience OR Gaming in Adult Education Program used as another way to engage health sciences librarians. There are several activities within the game where players can learn about topics in the areas of technology, health information literacy, education, and library advocacy. The Three part Challenges are structured around the Experiential Education Theory (EET), also known as the See One; Do One, Teach One method of learning, which is used heavily in medical education. This theory views that each level of action increases the depth of knowledge of the learner. To make EET more relevant to how librarians learn, some modification was required: See One = “Increase Knowledge”; Do One = “Use Knowledge”; and Teach One = “Share Knowledge”. The general format for these challenge are where they will increase their knowledge by reading or watching a video on the game topic being covered followed by a quiz that will test their understanding of major concepts in the content. They will then carry out an activity or use that knowledge in a real and meaningful setting. The final challenge for the player is to share their experience with others to demonstrate the value of of the experience. The ultimate goal of the game is to produce librarians who are knowledgeable about important issues impacting health care, which in turn they can use to increase the knowledge of the wide range of stakeholders they work with everyday. This particular CE Challenge is in the area of Education and Health Information Literacy, that must complete in order: Challenge One = 10 Points (Education); Challenge Two 25 Points (Health Literacy); Challenge Three 65 Points (Health Literacy). The challenges focus on identifying ways players can become a potential solution or partner in enhancing access to quality consumer health information and to facilitate collaborations with libraries, public health workforce, and local/regional health agencies/organizations. To increase knowledge, the player will watch the TED video “Dave deBronkart: Meet e-Patient Dave” and correctly answer a question correctly to demonstrate they understood a major concept of the video. Players will the use their knowledge by creating a profile on the languages spoken in the county in which they are employed and create a list of health information resources that for those languages. They will then report on their experience of sharing their knowledge of raising awareness someone in their community who would find the resources helpful. Such as: 1) Meet with local public health staff to let them know you have these resources; 2) Meet with the local health ministry or parish nurse organizations; or 3) Present this information to library staff members.

This particular CE Challenge is in the area of Education and Library Advocacy, players will learn how to prepare a response that addresses the fact that library costs a lot of money but justify it in a way that is understood by financial administrators: return on investments (ROI), cost benefit analyses (CB/A), and the retail value of library services. By the end of this challenge, players will have demonstrated their understanding of how to effectively express the value of their library using concepts found in ROI, CB/A, and Retail Value calculations. Players will be able to confidently respond to the question ”What is your library's worth?”. This is a Challenge has three parts that must complete in order: Challenge One = 10 Points (Education); Challenge Two 25 Points (Advocacy); Challenge Three 65 Points (Advocacy)

Science Boot Camps for Librarians are immersive 2 ½ day events featuring educational presentations about science. This Science Boot Camp will explore key concepts and research in geology, environmental sciences and health sciences, all focused on the science of disaster. In addition to the six speakers in these topical areas, attendees of Science Boot Camp will have option of attending a three and a half hour hands on worksop on either Data Librarianship or Disaster Informatics. This conference is an opportunity for librarians to hear about different fields of science and research interests, which in turn helps us to better facilitate the research for faculty, students and other researchers. Approximately 150 librarians from libraries in the Western states will attend, the small size and camp immersive atmosphere create ample opportunities for networking and invigorating discussions.

Type of CE activity: B) Joint meeting of the Philadelphia Regional Chapter of MLA and the Health Sciences Library Association of New Jersey (HSLANJ) on March 19, 2015, from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm, at the New Jersey Hospital Association Conference Center, Princeton, NJ. Course Description: To promote health literacy and other community programs, librarians are becoming active in their communities. Involvement in community activities can raise many bioethical issues. This course will support community engagement and research support by providing a history of bioethics information in NLM databases; tips on the utilization of current resources such as PubMed’s bioethics subset and organization web sites; and reviews of international bioethics databases such as UNESCO's Global Ethics Observatory (GEObs), Globethics.net, and the Bioethics Literature Database (BELIT), a cooperative database of 5 ethics centers in Germany, France, and the United States. In addition to health literacy, participants will devise search strategies for bioethics literature on “big data,” emergency preparedness, and health status disparities, as well as develop a consent form for a clinical research project and a bioethics education list. At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to access and utilize bioethics information on a wide variety of topics quickly and easily, and participate in local programs (such as being a nonscientist on an Institutional Review Board) with confidence.

A Visual Guide to PubMed Citation Tags

Contact: Merle Rosenzweig and Mari Monosoff-Richards and Kate Saylor
Contact: 734-615-8923 - http://hdl.handle.net/2027.42/110680 - Midwest region
A record in PubMed is designated by what is known as a “citation tag”. Such a tag or tags can be seen at the end of the citation in square brackets. Some tags indicate the status of the indexing process. Other tags have a relationship to the article’s status of compliance with the National Institutes Public Access Policy. In contrast to text-heavy guides that do not provide examples, this guide is a simple visual with brief explanations. An example of each tag is given that could be posted on a webpage and/or used when providing instruction on PubMed. Each tag example and its description are delineated with a shape, and each shape and example are color coded. The content of the guide is 508 compliant.
