Science Boot Camp is a fun and affordable 2 ½ day immersion into science topics offering opportunities for librarians and library students interested in science, health sciences, and technology to learn, meet and network in a fun, laid-back atmosphere. Each day involves presentations from scientists about their respective scientific field. One presenter will present an overview of the subject, and the second presenter discusses their research application within the field. This set-up provides science librarians with the base knowledge needed to understand the subject, and also understand how researchers are working in the field. Each presenter provides key resources for their subject, and also addresses how librarians can help researchers within the field of study. Subjects in the past have included nursing, engineering, genetics, public health, toxicology and data visualization. The final day of Boot Camp includes a Capstone Session which provides librarians with a hands-on activity in a related area of study including: research data management, how to talk to researchers, science literacy and citizen science.

Complementary, Alternative, and Integrative Health for the Consumer: A Primer for Librarians (MLA 2017)

Contact: Kelli Ham
Contact: 310-825-1984 - Southern California and Arizona region
When serving patients and consumers, complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) topics can be challenging for librarians. Patients may request information about alternative options from the hospital librarian, and patrons in the public library may ask about the latest “miracle cure.” Consumers may have misconception about safety of natural products, or may try an alternative approach out of desperation. Over a third of U.S. adults use some sort of CAM. While CAM hasn’t always been embraced by the medical community, integrative medicine is becoming more mainstream. In this course, participants will learn about different types of CAM therapies, current usage, and trends toward integrating approaches with conventional medicine. This course will provide librarians with the necessary background, tools, and resources to help consumers make informed decisions about CAM and integrative health. Participants will get hands-on experience with consumer and professional level resources during the workshop exercises.
