REMM is a tool from the National Library of Medicine which aims to provide guidance for health care providers and emergency responders about clinical diagnosis and treatment of radiation injury during radiological and nuclear emergencies. REMM is designed to provide web-based information that is also downloadable in advance, so that it would be available during an emergency if the Internet is not accessible. This workshop covers all the basics of REMM, including the content and the various online, mobile and downloadable formats for emergency responders. This course qualifies for 2 or 3 contact hours for the Disaster Information Specialization curriculum, Advanced Level.

Supporting Systematic Reviews: The Basics

Contact: Janene Batten and Angela Myatt
Contact: - North Atlantic region
Have you been asked to participate in the development of a systematic review? Are you thinking about promoting this service to your clinician-research community? This workshop is This workshop is the continuation of the one originally conceived by our colleagues Karen Odato and Jan Glover. It isdesigned for medical librarians who want an introduction to the systematic review process in general and the librarian’s role in that process in particular. Through informal discussion and hands-on, case-based learning, you will acquire these skills needed to support systematic reviews in your institution: Identify the steps in the systematic review process. Explore standards for systematic review development [e.g., Cochrane; IOM; PRISMA] Identify the roles of the librarian within this process: -- Select databases and other resources appropriate for the topic -- Utilize project management tools to keep track of search -- Strategies [e.g., concept tables] and citations [e.g., EndNote] -- Draft the search methodology for publication.

Developing Data Services to Support eScience/eResearch

Contact: John Bramble and Jian Qin, Ph. D
Contact: 801 585 5743 - http://nnlm.gov/mcr - Midcontinental region
E-Science is the new paradigm of science that is characterized as data-driven, highly distributed and collaborative, and computing dependent. This paradigm shift has raised new challenges in a largely-untested territory for librarians and information professionals: eScience is generating more data than scientists can manage and the lagging in data management and curation is hurting science research productivity. Research librarians in many countries have initiated services in support of eScience. One of such services is helping researchers manage and curate their research data. Data management for research in science and social sciences involves policy, technological, social, legal, and administrative issues at various levels (research team, administrative, institutional, national, and international). This lecture includes a brief overview of eScience and basic concepts such as dataset, data repository, data collections, and data policy, which will be discussed in the context of biomedical and health sciences. A case study will be presented as an example of developing and implementing data services. The participants will also have a chance working in groups to conduct case studies and share their case analysis results.

Spotlight on NLM Resources: Self Help Resources / Just Enough Learning

Contact: John Bramble

Self-Help Resources in NLM Databases The archive of the September 2013 Spotlight on National Library of Medicine Resources is a perfect for Public Librarians. It focuses on where you can go to find self-help resources on how to use NLM databases.  Most NLM databases have some sort of training modules,  ranging from html pages to full on YouTube video tutorials. The recording covers a smorgasbord of NLM databases: MedlinePlus, PubMed/MEDLINE, PubMed Health. Phpartners, Haz-Map, and Household Products Database. The recording focuses on where the how-to-use gems are hidden.  Even if you’ve been using PubMed or any of the other databases being covered  even before the birth of the Internet, we think you’re bound to learn something new. Attendees will leave the session with a better understanding on where to go in situations where they need to use the “self-teach” method of learning NLM Databases along with what the main features each database provides.
