Digital golf scopes and flash cards?
Twila Snead is using her Micro-Award grant from NN/LM-MAR to increase the number of physicians registered to use St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital’s Virtual Medical Library and to get resource evaluation and feedback from those already using the extensive array of electronic resources. Physicians who participated chose a 256k credit card style flash drive or digital golf scope both imprinted with the library logo and URL. Her initial effort in conjunction with a physician’s seminar resulted in thirteen new physician’s registering to use the library website and fifteen physician’s responding to the three question survey.
Surprisingly many of the physician’s stated that the resources they normally use are already available through the website. Other significant results were that 13 of the 15 physician’s expressed a desire to order articles directly through PubMed. Twila will follow up with individual office visits to set them up and review procedures for Loansome Doc use.
