All the items discussed will be made available on the Value Study website. Joanne will also share the results of some advanced data analysis that demonstrate the added value of using the services of the librarian and the searching the library-provided resources in patient care.
The second part of the presentation will discuss ways of mining and using the Value Study data. Kathel Dunn from NLM will share the results of data mining that they have done on users of PubMed/MEDLINE and related resources.
