About LiME:

LiME, or Librarians in Medical Education, began as a SIG within the NEGEA community in 2007. The purpose of the SIG was to serve as an opportunity for those teaching information literacy skills to students, residents and faculty to meet with and learn from others in the region who are on the forefront of planning and executing medical curriculum. LiME is not just for librarians but is for anyone interested in how knowledge of using the medical literature and information literacy plays a role in medical education.

This webinar is co-sponsored by the NN/LM NER Instructional Design Community of Interest.

Introduction to Medical Librarianship

Friday, March 25th, 2016

Check out this webinar opportunity to see what others are doing in the field and if there are any new initiatives you can take on at your own institution!

Interested in what Medical Librarians do? Do you want to become a Health Science Librarian or know someone who is interested?

Simmons College Continuing Education is hosting a webinar “Introduction to Medical Librarianship” on Tuesday, March 29th, 12:00-1:00 PM EST.

This webinar will introduce attendees to the exciting career of medical librarianship. The webinar will present an overview of the field, including a discussion of what medical librarians do, who they serve, the settings in which they work, and the types of resources they use. Medical librarians play an important role as members of the patient care team, support the educational mission of students in the health professions and partner with researchers in advancing scientific discoveries from the bench to the bedside. New roles for medical librarians such as: conducting systematic reviews to inform patient care decision making, designing health literacy programs and services, teaching the principles of evidence-based medicine, and creating research data management services will be emphasized.

Presented by Elaine R. Martin, MSLS, DA, Director of Library Services, Lamar Soutter Library, and Director, National Network of Libraries of Medicine, New England Region, at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester. Dr. Martin is a professor of practice at the School of Library and Information Science at Simmons College, Boston, teaching courses in medical librarianship, library management and scientific research data management.

NSF Public Access Policy Webinar

Friday, March 25th, 2016

Webinar led by Brown University to discuss the new NSF Public Access Policy and how this will affect the sharing of the results of research, both publications and data, in the coming year.

Title:  Complying with the NSF’s New Public Access Policy and Depositing a Manuscript in NSF-PAR

Date: 12PM-1:30PM Tuesday, April 19th, 2016

Description: In 2016 the National Science Foundation (NSF) rolled out its new online public access repository, NSF-PAR for investigators funded by the NSF to deposit their manuscripts to comply with its new Public Access Policy. The NSF’s policy and its new publications repository differ in several key ways from the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) public access policy and PMC, particularly in terms of requirements for compliance and procedures for deposit. While NIH grants may make up the majority of biomedical institutions’ research funds, the NSF is also an important source of biomedical funding, especially for career awards, research training grants, and translational research. In this webinar we will walk participants through the requirements for compliance and the process for deposit and share insights provided by the NSF Policy Office.


Hope Lappen is the Biomedical and Life Sciences Librarian at Brown University. Prior to coming to Brown, Hope served as the Science and Engineering Librarian at George Washington University and the Eugene Garfield Resident in Science Librarianship at University of Pennsylvania.

Andrew Creamer is the Science Data Management Librarian at Brown University. He helps students and faculty researchers with NSF data management plans and digital curation projects. Prior to Brown, Andrew worked on research data management initiatives at the NN/LM NER.
