Learn more from a team of librarians and informationists from Galter Health Sciences Library who developed a program in 2015 and have measured the impact of this service over the past two years. This team will share how they have supported the clinical care environment at their institution by fostering evidence-based decision making. Within this presentation, you will learn how the team used visualization techniques to analyze the current service model.
