PNR Partners

Class Details

This project brought the Association of College & Research Libraries’ workshop “Building your Research Data Management Toolkit: Integrating RDM into Your Liaison Work” to Spokane, Washington on April 10, 2017. The workshop trained regional academic and hospital librarians and academic research support staff members serving expanding medical programs and growing research needs involving rural populations. With the support of the libraries from Washington State University, Gonzaga University, Eastern Washington University, and Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center, this grant funded workshop fees, travel and lodging expenses for two invited speakers, host facility fees and materials. The goals for bringing the workshop here to the Inland Northwest included 1) introducing liaison librarians to ways they can develop and apply research data management skills to serve their subject disciplines, 2) to establish a collective regional library understanding of data best practices, and 3) to ensure the ongoing integrity and interoperability of data applicable to the future health of our region.

Presenters: Beth Hill, PhD, MLS, BSW, AHIP, Medical Librarian, Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center Library, Spokane, WA
Suzanne Fricke, DVM, MLIS, Animal Health Sciences Librarian, Washington State University, Pullman, WA

Cartoonists, comics scholars, librarians, patients, and healthcare professionals from around the world convened at the Comics & Medicine Conference at Seattle Central Library to discuss the ways in which they are reading, creating, and sharing comics about health, illness, and caregiving. The conference theme, Access Points, drew attention to comics as a resource to:
• expand understanding of our bodies and minds
• open conversation about healthy beyond the medical establishment
• access health-related experiences that are unfamiliar, misunderstood, or even stigmatized, and
• reduce barriers to health information

Presenter: Meredith Li-Vollmer, PhD, Risk Communication Specialist, Public Health - Seattle & King County
