Beyond The SEA: November 14th, 2012 – Developing an Infrastructure for Information Support for Clinical and Translational Researchers

Date:  November 14th, 2012

Time:  Noon to 1:00 pm (EDT)

Presenters: Michele Tennant, Jennifer Lyon, Rolando Milian, Hannah Norton

Michele Tennant, PhD, MLIS, AHIP, is the Assistant Director for Biomedical and Health Information Services with the Health Science Center Libraries and Bioinformatics Librarian with the University of Florida’s Genetics Institute. As head of the department, Michele works with 9 librarians to develop and implement information services for the researchers, students and clinicians of the six colleges of the Health Science Center. As Bioinformatics Librarian, she serves the information needs of genetics researchers at UF. Michele received her PhD in Biology from Wayne State University, and her MLIS from UCLA, and is active in both the Medical Library Association and Special Libraries Association. She is the PI on the NNLM grant “Developing an Infrastructure for Information Support for Clinical and Translational Researchers”, and led the external and general information assessments described in this presentation.

Jennifer A. Lyon, MS, MLIS, AHIP, is the clinical research librarian at the Health Science Center Libraries at the University of Florida. She is responsible for supporting the UF Clinical and Translational Science Institute and also serves as the liaison librarian to the departments of Emergency Medicine and Orthopedics and Rehabilitation. She has nearly 12 years’ experience as a bioinformatics and clinical librarian, providing information services at the point-of-care for various hospital units while also working with laboratory researchers. She has hands-on experience in both clinical and biological research, holding an MS in Molecular Biology (UW-Madison) as well as her MLIS (UNCG). Additionally, she has taken formal coursework in the M.Ed. program at Vanderbilt. She is a co-PI on the NNLM grant “Developing an Infrastructure for Information Support for Clinical and Translational Researchers.”

Rolando Milian, MLS, AHIP, is the Basic Biomedical Sciences Librarian/ Liaison at the Univ. of Florida Health Sciences Center Library. After obtaining his B.S. in Biology at the University of Havana, Cuba, he worked for seven years at the Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology in Havana on projects related to the effect of cytokines on Human Papillomavirus-associated diseases. At the Health Sciences Center Libraries, he provides liaison librarian services including bioinformatics support to the faculty, post-docs, staff and students in selected basic biomedical sciences departments and academic programs in the Health Science Center such as the Dept. of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology;  Neuroscience; Pathology, Immunology and Laboratory Medicine; and Physiology and Functional Genomics, among others. He is co- PI on the NNLM grant “Developing an Infrastructure for Information Support for Clinical and Translational Researchers”, and led the bioinformatics needs assessments described in this presentation.

Hannah Norton, MSIS, AHIP, is an Assistant University Librarian at the University of Florida Health Science Center Library, serving primarily as librarian liaison to the College of Veterinary Medicine and the Department of Medicine. Her research interests include library support for e-science and data curation in the health sciences, library-based bioinformatics support, and the library as place.  Hannah has recently been appointed chair of UF’s Data Curation and Management Task Force.  She holds a B.A. in Biology from Carleton College and an M.S. in Information Studies from the University of Texas at Austin. She is co- PI on the NNLM grant “Developing an Infrastructure for Information Support for Clinical and Translational Researchers”, and led the data management needs assessments described in this presentation.

Presentation: Developing an Infrastructure for Information Support for Clinical and Translational Researchers

This presentation will focus on the work done to develop an information support program for clinical and translational medicine researchers at the University of Florida. The work was funded in part through an award from the NN/LM SE/A and addresses the challenges of understanding and meeting the information needs of researchers working in a rapidly expanding field of medical inquiry.
