Resources such as the guide Understanding Ethics and Privacy in Health Information and Services. It includes guidance on how to provide ethical services when you aren’t a health expert; ethical communication practices for when you and your patron speak different languages; and how to maintain an ethical and reliable collection for health information consumers. The guide also includes individual and team reflection questions to help you consider these topics proactively. The PDF guide can be downloaded here.

Baystate Health Sciences Library Celebrates NMLM

Thursday, November 19th, 2015

Baystate

 

The librarians at Baystate Health had some fun with National Medical Librarians Month (NMLM)!  The librarians hosted a full day of events including online demos, games and door prizes, library crossword puzzles, and snacks/beverages. They created a display table of Baystate author publications, helped people get apps onto their mobile devices, and provided the ambience of relaxing George Winston music.  Staff wore the purple T-shirts with the logo “Keep calm and ask the librarian.”  Ellen Brassil, Director of the Health Sciences Library, shared, “We can’t wait to do something new next year, and hope we got our message across, and keeping calm or not will ask the librarian!”
