Class Overview

Join your RML staff and colleagues in reading and discussing new research in the field of health sciences librarianship! Participants will join the online discussion via web conferencing software. Outreach specialists from the Network of the National Library of Medicine will host and present on a recently published article that impacts the field of health sciences librarianship. After the 30-minute presentation, a discussion will take place among participants about the article. This is a great opportunity to stay up-to-date on emerging research and network with fellow colleagues!


By the end of the session, participants will:

  • Evaluate the hypothesis, the study design, the method, results, and limitations in a systematic fashion.
  • Determine the application of a particular study in their practice and impact towards health sciences librarianship.
  • Appraise and assimilate evidence from selected literature related to health sciences and health sciences librarianship.
