EFTS (Electronic Funds Transfer System) Awards - Apply NOW

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

By: PJ Grier, Outreach and Access Coordinator, SE/A RML

EFTS saves time and money.

For a limited time only, the SE/A Regional Medical Library has several “starter” awards available for Full Members that are active DOCLINE libraries. Starter funds are in the amount of $200.00, for non-EFTS libraries. Current EFTS library members may request $100.00 to continue their participation in the program and affirm their ongoing resource sharing efforts. If approved, funds will be deposited into an EFTS account under your DOCLINE LIBID (Library ID) symbol. Even better, there is no time limit in which the funds must be used. To find more information about the benefits of joining EFTS, go to: https://efts.uchc.edu/common/index.aspx.  You will also find a sample (“ROI”) quantitative analysis that shows the dollar savings derived from converting to EFTS, if you need to prove value with finance leadership of your institution.

The electronic EFTS award application is painless and takes just minutes to complete. Why not start enjoying the benefits and ease of EFTS by joining the electronic processing initiative like so many fellow DOCLINE libraries?  Questions about EFTS can be directed to efts@uchc.edu, or 860-679-4500.

Hospital Librarian Toolkit Launched

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

By David Midyette, Outreach and Communications Coordinator, NN/LM, SE/A Region

Back in January 2010, hospital librarians from the region, SE/A staff, and experts from around the U.S. converged on Baltimore for a Hospital Librarian Summit. The goal was to look at the future of hospital libraries and librarians, with an eye towards how the SE/A could best support them as they face unprecedented challenges. There were many wonderful discussions about multiple aspects of hospital librarianship, and a good deal was accomplished in a very brief time.

One of the major outcomes of the summit was a desire to create an updated, dynamic, and useful Hospital Librarian Toolkit. After a long brainstorming session, the various ideas were consolidated into main topics. Participants voted for the topics they felt were most important, and a ranked list was produced. From that list and utilizing SE/A expertise, a plan was devised, which has now come to fruition:

Resources for Hospital Librarians

In this LibGuide, we have pulled together resources that address the summit topics as well as other areas that have become increasingly important over the past two years. This guide is intended to be both dynamic and collaborative. The world of hospital librarianship is changing rapidly, so this guide will be updated regularly as issues arise. Collaboration is key and input from the region is vital. If you have questions, concerns, additions, deletions, suggestions, or any other ideas on keeping this guide current and vital, please let us know.

We thank everyone who has contributed to this guide and look forward to supporting hospital libraries and librarians in this ever-changing world.

Please contact David Midyette (dmidyette@hshsl.umaryland.edu) P.J. Grier (pgrier@hshsl.umaryland.edu) or Sheila Snow-Croft (ssnowcro@hshsl.umaryland.edu) with your suggestions and comments.
