The Knowledge Café is a monthly meeting for HSLIC staff and faculty to come together to share experiences, learn from each other, and build relationships. This welcoming environment will not only allow us to grow as individuals, but it will foster a more collaborative approach to fulfill our overall library mission.
The readings and resources of our Knowledge Cafe are located in the tab.
Holistic Review in UME Admissions (Undergraduate Medical Education)
Facilitators: Alexis Ellsworth-Kopkowski and Deborah Rhue
Topic: "Covidence: Tips and Lessons Learned"
Facilitators: Jon Eldredge, Allison Cruise, Melissa Rethlefsen, Sally Bowler-Hill and Deborah Rhue
Topic: "Lightning Presentations of MLA 2022 Papers and Posters"
Jon Eldredge (L.J. Hall): Developing a Faculty Roles Crosswalk for Health Sciences Librarians
"Many academic and hospital Health Sciences Librarians in the United States have faculty status. Translating HSL faculty responsibilities into terms that their non-HSL faculty counterparts can easily understand represents an ongoing challenge for HSLs. The librarians at HSLIC used a job analysis methodology to develop a Crosswalk that translates HSL job roles for non-HSL faculty members into easily grasped faculty responsibilities."
Jon Eldredge (C. Nathe): Building Question Formulation Skills Among Dental Hygiene Students
"This randomized controlled trial involved a 5-minute introduction to question formulation that was accompanied by training on a rubric for all students. The control group students did not receive any additional training whereas the intervention group received a 25 minute training on question formulation that included peer instruction and a hands-on applied exercise. The initial post-test scores were not much different, but when four (4) control group students who studied with intervention group students were removed from the analysis, the intervention students performed far better on the post-test."
Allison Cruise (A. Sawyer, L. Dolan): Analysis of Public Preprint Server Comments on NIH Preprint Pilot Articles
"Given the increased prevalence of preprints during the COVID-19 pandemic, this project seeks to analyze public comments left on a sample of preprint articles from the NIH Preprint Pilot to determine if they were substantive in nature. Analysis of article titles and qualitative coding of the comments was conducted. This analysis was designed to measure comments on a selected group of articles to provide evidence of the impact of public commenting on scientific rigor."
Allison Cruise (A.N. Villezcas, A. Ellsworth-Kopkowski, J.D. Eldredge, M.L. Rethlefsen): Academic Health Sciences Libraries' Outreach and Engagement with Native American Communities: A Scoping Review
"This review seeks to identify trends in how academic health sciences libraries have supported community engagement and outreach with Native American communities. This comes at a time when a lack of equity and access to health information and low health literacy affect the health conditions of the Native American population."
Melissa Rethlefsen (N.R. Haddaway, C.A. Ashby): Developing SearchRxiv: An International Transdisciplinary Repository for Search Strategies
"This presentation explains the collaboration with CABI to develop searchRxiv, a new platform for documenting and sharing search strategies. SearchRxiv (searchrxiv.org) allows users to create a DOI-stamped record of a search strategy or a search block as documentation and data have been scattered across dozens of resources from individual journals files to institutional repositories"
Melissa Rethlefsen (B Ragon, EC Whipple): Except for My Commute, Everything is the Same: The Shared Lived Experiences of Libraries During the COVID-19 Pandemic
"This study investigates the impact of COVID-19 on academic health sciences libraries over three crucial periods during the pandemic. Findings provide context for challenges libraries faced and the tactics they employed to ensure services and support for their staff. The study captures the experiences of libraries as they transitioned to remote service environments, evolved over the course of an uncertain academic year, and began to transition or plan to transition back to in person services in some capacity. The study finds that, while library workers were energized to transition to remote services, they later expressed exhaustion with budget reductions, reopening planning, and a lack of certainty."
Sally Bowler-Hill: Continuing to Build Consensus Around the Future of Remote Work: One Library's Study
"Based on experiences from the COVID-19 pandemic, this study attempts to understand employee perceptions of remote work as a potential option for normal operations. Two surveys were conducted, before and after developing telecommuting and remote work guidelines for the library. Results show that, while staff and faculty showed overall satisfaction with hybrid work, time and further adjustments may be needed towards improving a sense of connectedness."
