SE/A Region Year 03 Begins

by Janice Kelly, executive director

Year 03 of our five-year contract began on May 1, 2003. We started the new year on the road at the Medical Library Association annual meeting in San Diego and then ventured to Florida, Virginia and Georgia before the month was through. Our plan for year 03 includes more visits to each state with the advent of a new DOCLINE®, new classes and exhibits to name a few activities. I will give you some of the highlights and additions to our plan for the year. You can read the whole outreach plan at http://nnlm.gov/sea/aboutus/contract/yr3outplan.html. While we hope to do all that is stated, things change during the year that make some tasks lower priorities.

This year we want to hold several more state planning meetings. We hope these meetings will give us guidance on future outreach initiatives for each state, help us forge partnerships with organizations and libraries and give Network members a bigger voice in what needs to be done locally. See http://nnlm.gov/sea/outreach/rfqs/2003/stateplanningteams.html for details on how to apply to host a state planning team. We want to have one in each state before the end of the five-year contract. We have already funded meetings for Georgia and South Carolina to be held in year 03 with previous year funds.

NLM® approved funding for a new coordinator position. The specific populations coordinator will help us with outreach to community-based and faith-based organizations and the varied specific populations that reside in the region.

A new funding award is available this year. The Professional Development for Primary Access Library Network Members Award will support Network member library staff in primary access libraries in the Region in developing their skills and knowledge in using technology for health information access and delivery, library or personnel management, or other skills that will benefit them in their positions. The SE/A will award up to $1,000 to individuals in Primary Access Libraries in Region 2. Applications may be made at any time, and will be available until funds for the awards are depleted. See http://nnlm.gov/sea/outreach/rfqs/2003/profdevaward.html for more information and application.

We funded two technology awareness proposals from proposals received in January. Mercer School of Medicine Library will hold a conference in conjunction with their GaIN institution members to increase awareness of technology applications and tools among health professionals and health science librarians in the state. The second award goes to Northwest AHEC in Winston-Salem, NC to provide a cybercafe at the annual CE symposium offered by Wake Forest University Health Sciences for health professionals throughout the state.

We will fund also at least 6 subcontracts from the proposal ideas received in January. Other funding is available for local/state exhibits, training, and library improvement projects. Also we will provide funding for electronic document delivery projects near the end of the pilot projects that are just beginning.

We hope it will be another successful year. We hope to see you at a DOCLINE, PubMed ® or other class or at a state or local meeting some time this year.

Promoting PDA Usage with an Infrared Port

by Cynthia Vaughn, MLIS, AHIP
Preston Medical Library, University of Tennessee
cvaughn@mc.utmck.edu

In October 2002, the Preston Medical Library in Knoxville, TN borrowed an infrared (IR) port offered by the SE/A Regional Medical Library at the University of Maryland, Baltimore. Installing a port was one component of the new PDA initiative-prior to this time the library did not offer formal support for PDAs. Throughout the ensuing months, we have been collecting ideas about ways to utilize the port.

The IR port is a Clarinet Systems EthIR LAN (http://www.clarinetsys.com). Installation on the hospital's network required working with the IT department in order to determine the correct IP address for the port. Initially, AvantGo (http://myavantgo.com) was the only program used for demonstrations. Handouts about AvantGo and instructions for syncing with Palm and Pocket PC platforms are located near the IR port.

One physician requested a demonstration of the IR port to residents during a Clinical Epidemiology course. All of the residents in the class were required to have ePocrates (http://www.epocrates.com) loaded on their PDA for this course, and they were shown how to update ePocrates through its AutoUpdate program. The instructor will be keeping a PDA component in future courses, along with a demonstration of the IR port.

Currently, residents most frequently use the IR port to update ePocrates. AvantGo is discussed in the Introduction to PDAs class, in addition to ePocrates. There have been no technical difficulties with the IR port itself, and the most common complaint is that the port cannot be used to sync with Microsoft Outlook. Based on observation, most of the people who use the IR port have learned about it in one of the library's classes.

In the future, Preston's IR port will continue to be promoted as one of the library's services, and featured on the library's PDA Web page (http://gsm.utmck.edu/library/pda/pda.htm). A text-only "about the library" page will be created soon, and will be available as an AvantGo custom channel.

Using the borrowed infrared port has given the library staff a chance to experience a new way of syncing a PDA, as well as offering a service to library users. An IR port is a simple way to promote PDA usage in the library and expose library users to PDA technologies.

SE/A Region's LinkOut Teleconference Classes Are a Hit

by Mary Fran Prottsman, MLn, AHIP
Director, Medical Library, US Army Aeromedical Center, Fort Rucker, AL

I participated in the LinkOut teleconference training provided by Beth Wescott and J. Dale Prince, NN/LM Southeastern/Atlantic Region, consisting of two one-hour toll free teleconferences supplemented by PowerPoint slides.

Beth's calm explanation of Dale's well-prepared slides illustrating pertinent points demystified the LinkOut process. With less than a dozen participants, there was ample opportunity to ask questions. It was wonderful to participate in collaborative training in the comfort of my own office without having to travel! Another huge advantage were the pointers provided about what NOT to do....lessons learned the hard way through someone else's experience. All in all a great experience and one I highly recommend for others.

Contact the education coordinator for information on subsequent classes.

National Health Information Infrastructure

On June 30-July 2 in Washington, DC a conference that brought together representatives of all the stakeholders to develop a consensus national action agenda to guide further development of the nation health information infrastructure was held. The conference had expert speakers on architecture, financial incentives, consumer health, homeland security, privacy and confidentiality, research and population health, safety and quality and standards and vocabulary. Small group sessions were held for each track with the purpose of developing recommendations for action agendas.

[From the press release] HHS Secretary Tommy G. Thompson spoke at the conference and announced two new steps in building a national electronic health care system that will allow patients and their doctors to access their complete medical records anytime and anywhere they are needed, leading to reduced medical errors, improved patient care, and reduced health care costs.

First, the Secretary announced that the Department has signed an agreement with the College of American Pathologists (CAP) to license the College's standardized medical vocabulary system and make it available without charge throughout the U.S. This action opens the door to establishing a common medical language as a key element in building a unified electronic medical records system in the U.S.

Secondly, the Secretary announced that HHS has commissioned the Institute of Medicine to design a standardized model of an electronic health record. The health care standards development organization known as HL7 has been asked to evaluate the model once it has been designed. HHS will share the standardized model record at no cost with all components of the U.S. health care system. The Department expects to have a model record ready in 2004.

The conference agenda, speaker presentations, including Secretary Thompson's address, and action agendas are available at http://aspe.hhs.gov/sp/nhii/

Get Out There!

by Toni Yancey, exhibiting and outreach coordinator

As some of you have experienced, I've begged, pleaded and bullied people into exhibiting at meetings of health professionals and consumers. The rest of you have wondered why does she push exhibiting so much. I believe exhibiting is a fantastic experience and I want all of you to get out there. Here are some of the benefits of exhibiting reported by your fellow librarians.

Community Service - Every hospital talks about serving the community. What have you done to help the hospital with this mission? Your library doesn't have to be open to the public, for you to exhibit at your local consumer show. You can promote MedlinePlus ® as a resource.

Mary Wallace Berry from Novant Health System in Charlotte participated in the NN/LM exhibit at the Southern Women's Show. When asked why she participated she said, "To support our initiative of providing the best healthcare for our community. Our slogan [Novant Health] is "Improving the health of our community one person at a time." How did her boss feel about her participation? "They were ecstatic and very supportive." Her participation was even mentioned during their Joint Commission visit.

Reconnecting with old clients - Finding new ones - For the past three years, one of the two South Carolina medical school libraries has exhibited at the annual meeting of the South Carolina Medical Association. More than half of the physicians in South Carolina went to one of these medical schools.

I recently asked Sarah Gable from the University of South Carolina and Peggy Mauldin from Medical University of South Carolina about their experiences exhibiting. They both had great experiences and felt it was beneficial for their libraries. When asked whether or not attendees realized that library services were available for practicing physicians, Peggy noted, "It was a pleasant surprise to some." Peggy also stated "It was good to reconnect with people. I saw professors that I hadn't seen in ages, particularly with so many electronic resources available remotely."

Not just NLM promotion - promoting yourself - Does your library have a wonderful service or product available that the world must know about? In several states in our region some libraries have subscription-based products available to all health care professionals in their state. Exhibits are a great way to advertise the availability of these products.

Roz McConnaughy is the coordinator for the Center for Disability Resources Library at the University of South Carolina. In April she exhibited at the South Carolina Council for Exceptional Children Annual Convention. I asked her what she was promoting. She said, "We wanted to let people know about the library. We recently acquired it and people didn't know." After the exhibit, the Disability Resources Library experienced an increase in reference and circulation numbers. When asked if she would participate in future exhibits as a means to promote her library, she said, "Definitely."

Rita Smith is the Rural Health Information Clearinghouse Librarian at Mercer University. Here's what she had to say about the benefits of exhibiting: "Exhibiting for NLM has been a great way to promote our library and the Georgia Interactive Network for Medical Information (GaIN) as well as NLM. We depend heavily on products and services such as PubMed , DOCLINE , and MedlinePlus , so educating our users about NLM fits very well with our mission."

"Because of NLM's exhibit awards, we've been able to exhibit at meetings of physicians, school nurses, rural healthcare professionals, and hospital administrators. All of these are potential library or GaIN users, so exhibiting for NLM has been an excellent way to raise awareness of our services. We will definitely continue to apply for exhibit funds in the future. The process is easy and the rewards are great!"

So, what are you waiting for? The application is available at: http://nnlm.gov/sea/outreach/rfqs/2003/exhibitform.html

What is Open Access and Why Should You Care? A Personal View

by Julie Kwan, Library Network Coordinator, PSRML
Used with permission

"Open access" is used to describe literature 1) that is available to the reader at no cost, and 2) for which the copyright owner allows the material to be freely downloaded, copied, shared, stored, printed, searched, linked, and crawled(1). The term is gaining use in all disciplines due to new technological possibilities made available via the web.

Does open access affect us in health science libraries? Yes, it does! We already have open access articles - the BioMed Central journals - in PubMed . This is really significant! For us, it is not a matter of finding these articles somewhere on the web - they are already being added to PubMed , and some of the titles are given full indexing in MEDLINE®. As librarians, we know that people need to first find out about an article before they can click through to it, and the standard way people find out about new biomedical literature is through PubMed . Once again, we are a step ahead of others.

Although BioMed Central is very new and does not yet include a large number of articles, it will undoubtedly grow. I have had conversations with authors who say that they want to publish their research in places where the reader "can automatically click through to the full-text". From their own experience, they know that logon screens asking for passwords or credit card numbers are barriers. They tell me that when they see one of these boxes they simply move on to the next article. As open access articles increase in number, people may decide to move past the articles that require payment - they may find enough to which they can simply click through. I predict that BioMed Central - as well as other open access efforts such as the Public Library of Science - will grow quickly because scientists and clinicians want their articles to be read!

How will the economic models change? Libraries will not pay subscription fees, and individual users will not pay-per-view. Open access uses an up-front payment model. The authors, or the author institutions, pay the costs to place articles online. For example, authors submitting papers to BioMed Central pay $500 per article. Some institutions have signed agreements whereby their authors' costs for submitting articles to BioMed Central are already paid for. In our [Pacific Southwest] region, these institutional members include: University of Arizona, University of California, University of Southern California, and the Scripps Research Institute.

What should we do now? Personally, I'm trying to learn as much as I can about open access, not just BioMed Central, but other efforts as well (see the links below). I am also talking with as many people as I can about the issues - not just what they think, but their behaviors, both as information seekers and authors. We were surprised with how quickly the web transformed access to information. I wonder if we'll see the same revolution with open access systems. I'd be interested in learning what you think about this. Please feel free to contact me at: jkkwan@library.ucla.edu

Center for the Advancement of Health's HABIT: Health Behavior Information Transfer

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then how about a slide show complete with detailed illustrations, narration, easy- to-read captions and interactive feedback options? Here is a resource that time-strapped clinicians and curious patients alike can appreciate. The tutorials, published by the Patient Education Institute, are quick and easily digestible bites of multimedia health information aimed at all patients, including those with reading and visual disabilities. Using animated graphics, each tutorial explains a procedure or condition in easy-to-read language. You can also listen to the tutorial.

More than 500 tutorials have been published, many of them available for free on the MedlinePlus web site. That sub-group includes tutorials on 87 different diseases and conditions, 18 diagnostic tests, 40 surgery and treatment procedures and six prevention and wellness topics. Over 150 slide shows with sound and pictures give patients tips on issues like starting an exercise program, shows each of the steps in an echocardiogram or see how the bronchial tubes constrict during an asthma attack. Most tutorials include an introduction, anatomical descriptions or steps in a procedure, preventive measures, possible complications and a short summary.

Each tutorial launches automatically with Flash version 4 or higher software that can also be downloaded for free. Users click from slide to slide at their own pace, listening to a narrator read the short text for each side. Technical terms are hyperlinked to simple definitions.

NN/LM SE/A Region Public Library Membership

by Beth M Wescott, network access/membership coordinator

As you've read SE/A Currents over the past four years, you must have seen the time, energy and commitment NLM, NN/LM members and our outreach librarians have made, recruiting public libraries to the fold. Currently, the SE/A Region has fifty-eight public library members. Some are the state library commissions, others complete systems, as in Washington, DC, and others, one branch or system at a time. We invite you to work with these member libraries and to encourage public libraries in your locale to join the NN/LM. After all, the public is known for taking its health and wellness questions to the librarians they know best and with whom they are most comfortable. Frequently, that is their trusty public librarian. You, the NN/LM members and we, the NN/LM regional office, have proven our usefulness to a smallish percentage of eligible public libraries. Let's keep working together to recruit more, train more, partner more and fund more of them!

SEA Currents Volume 21, Number 4 -- July/August 2003

SEA Currents is a bimonthly publication of the Southeastern/Atlantic Region of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine.

Some New DOCUSER® Search Capabilities Coming in This Fall's DOCLINE 2.0 Release

New search capabilities will include searching by the base fee a library charges for copy requests, searching by electronic delivery address (Ariel address, email), limiting search results to libraries that provide color copies, and limiting to libraries in your Routing Table or not in your Routing Table. Since the system's search logs showed libraries limiting their searches to their own regions and states, NLM has added check boxes for these elements to make it easier for users to perform this action.

To determine the changes needed to the institution search capabilities, the DOCLINE Interface Redesign Team [DIRT] analyzed the DOCUSER search logs over a 6-month period, which included over 192,000 searches. The team reviewed all of the enhancement requests and comments sent since web DOCLINE was introduced in July 2000. In addition, your regional DOCLINE coordinators passed along user comments received from email, MLA Chapter meetings, training sessions, and conversations with DOCLINE users.

The redesigned screens and planned functionality changes were put through two separate rounds of usability testing by representative DOCLINE libraries. Based upon the results of the usability testing and direct feedback, many changes were made to the designs to better suit user needs.
