EDUCATION: Upcoming webinars

Monday, December 22 – 1:00 MT/2:00 CT – National Library of Agriculture class with Cindy Schmidt – a Professional Development Award

  • Cindy Schmidt recently attended “Meeting the Information Requirements of the Animal Welfare Act”, a 1-and-a-half-day workshop sponsored by the Animal Welfare Information Center (AWIC)  held at the National Agricultural Library. Have you ever been asked to help with a researcher’s “alternatives” search?  Has your Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) ever asked for your help critiquing submitted searches?  Do you think you may be asked for such help in the future?  If so, the core messages from the workshop will be of interest to you.   Attendees should be able to  understand and present, to their patrons,  the short segments of U.S. law and policy that govern and give meaning to the required “alternatives” searches, be able to explain  the three R’s of “alternative” searching and make best use of “alternative” searching time.  This should be of primary interest for health science librarians.   Join us at:  https://webmeeting.nih.gov/mcreducation
