Contact: - Midwest region
LGBT individuals face many barriers in accessing healthcare, including discrimination, lack of access, misunderstanding, and fear. As a consequence, many LGBT individuals do not regularly access appropriate and timely care. The more informed healthcare professionals are, LGBT patients and clients will become more comfortable in an environment that is often alienating, disrespectful, and traumatic.

Locating Information on Developmental Disabilities using NLM and Other Resources

Contact: Carolyn Martin
Contact: 206-221-3449 - - Pacific Northwest region
The American Library Association recognizes the needs of those who have developmental disabilities and strongly believes that "Libraries should provide training opportunities for all staff and volunteers in order to sensitize them to issues affecting persons with disabilities and to teach effective techniques for providing services for users with disabilities and for working with colleagues with disabilities." This class will provide an introduction to developmental disabilities, tools to evaluate quality websites and learn about NLM resources to answer health related needs, caregiver information, ideas for programming, as well as ways to provide awareness to the community regarding developmental disabilities.

We’re Way Past Peas: Uses of Genetic Information to Understand Human Health and Guide Health Care Decision Making

Contact: Carolyn Martin and Diana Nelson Louden
Contact: 206-221-3449 - Pacific Northwest region
The intersections of genetics and health now include precision medicine, pharmacogenomics, and direct-to-consumer genetic testing. This class will focus on the information needs of clinicians who are incorporating genetic information into their practice, as well as the information needs of consumers who are making sense of genetic information as it relates to their health. We will (1) describe uses of genetic information in health care; (2) discuss challenges facing clinicians, consumers, and librarians working with rapidly changing genetic information; and (3) provide an introduction to selected genomic medicine resources; and (4) give participants experience using NCBI genomic medicine resources to answer clinically-oriented questions. The course will be suitable for librarians who are relatively unfamiliar with genetics and genetics resources.

Planning Outcomes-Based Outreach Programs

Contact: Cynthia Olney and Karen Vargas
Contact: 678-682-3864 Fax: 206-543-2469 - - All region
In the words of the immortal Yogi Berra, “if you don’t know where you’re going, you might not get there.” The logic model is a useful tool from planning projects that will help you drive toward your desired results. Participants will learn how to identify desired outcomes, create an outcomes-based project plan using logic models, and then write objectives and evaluation plans based on those logic models. It provides an ideal framework for developing funding proposals, sets the stage for setting up a quality control system to make sure your project stays on track, and provide a structure for your final reports. The in-person version of this course lasts three hours and allows more more group work. The webinar version eliminated some group activities that were not conducive to this format.

Fundamentals of Bioinformatics and Searching

Contact: Jessi Van Der Volgen and Diane Rein
Contact: 801-581-4704 - - All region
The major goal of this course is to provide an introduction to bioinformatics theory and practice to provide the fundamentals for developing library-based bioinformatics products and services decision-making and implementation, particularly instructional and reference services. It encompasses visualizing bioinformatics end-user practice, places a strong emphasis on hands-on acquisition of NCBI Entrez search competencies, and a working molecular biology vocabulary, through self-paced hands-on exercises. It carries an expectation of engagement between course participants and their supervisor(s) while participants are enrolled in the course itself. A supporting statement from an inline supervisor is required. This course currently is a prerequisite for the face-to-face workshop, Librarian’s Guide to NCBI.
