The librarians at Regions Hospital Medical Library are currently working on a project that brings medical information and a librarian presence to healthcare conferences in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.  The conferences are offered by HealthPartners Institute for Medical Education (IME).

 

Thanks to a GMR technology award, the librarians have purchased a laptop and monitor to display resources from the National Library of Medicine, such as PubMed and MedlinePlus, and for HealthPartners employees, the subscription resources available to them through the library’s Intranet site.  Conference attendees are primarily from Minnesota and surrounding states.  Another goal of our project is to increase awareness of medical libraries in general among all conference participants.

 

The librarians have attended three conferences so far and answered questions regarding consumer health and accessing subscription online resources.  Building on the early success of this project, the librarians plan to continue attending IME conferences beyond 2011.

    I will be in the Minneapolis area sometime next month as part of my annual visit to the area and was hoping to come and pay a visit with regards to accessing some of the information available to guests. Is there any specific time that would be appropriate for the library staff? Many thanks Duncan

    Hi Duncan –
    I would suggest contacting Jennifer at the address she gives in the blog article if you are interested in visiting. I’m not sure she reads these comments as she was a guest contributor.

    Thanks,
    The Cornflower Team.
