Automatic Metadata Maintenance for NC Health Info
The overarching goal of this project is to address growing metadata maintenance needs threatening to stem the accelerated growth of North Carolina Health Info (NCHI) and the entire Go Local Initiative. Incorporating automatic techniques into NCHI’s metadata generation/quality control processes will allow NCHI catalogers to direct more time to the metadata challenges requiring human skill and intellect and ultimately assist users who are increasingly using NCHI metadata to help them find health information. To address this challenge, the project team will identify and enhance an existing metadata generation application by automating the metadata validation and quality review processes. The proposed work includes two phases: Phase 1, Automatic metadata application evaluation to identify the application/s we will enhance, and Phase 2, Automatic evaluation of metadata quality to determine the effectiveness of the automatic metadata maintenance process. The outcome base evaluation (OBE) activities include the following: 1. a metadata maintenance time evaluation analysis, 2. a human resource costs analysis, and 3. metadata quality evaluations comparing the quality of metadata generated via automatic and human methods during maintenance activities.

Evidence-based Public Health Informatics Training in Virginia
This study seeks to add to data previously obtained from a randomized-controlled trial undertaken in New Mexico by Jonathan Eldredge, PhD, and Richard Carr, MLS. The proposed project attempts to address three problem areas in public health. First, this project will provide needed Evidence-Based Public Health (EBPH) informatics training for public health practitioners who confront many public health problems in Central and Southwest Virginia. Second, this project generates practical information about the questions that practitioners formulate in the course of fulfilling their everyday responsibilities. This information will add to that gathered in the previous study that will help build a foundation for developing relevant informatics tools and skills for health care practitioners. Third, this proposed grant will advance the goals of EBPH by giving practitioners skills in question formulation, problem quantification, search strategies, and the critical appraisal of acquired information.

The librarians will receive training specific to rural cultural issues as they pertain to health care, so that they can become more culturally competent with this particular population. Through a pre and post training test for librarian staff, base lines on cultural competency can be established and knowledge base measured. Online surveys to track usage of NLM websites as well as determine feedback on training modules will be developed and implemented throughout the project.
