Reflections on Bioinformatics Librarianship

A growing number of librarians are filling a special niche in the information world: serving those who work with genetic and molecular biology information.  Bioinformatics research advances in such areas as gene therapy, personalized medicine, drug discovery, the inherited basis of complex diseases influenced by multiple gene/environmental interactions, and the identification of the molecular targets for environmental mutagens and carcinogens have wide ranging implications for the medical and consumer health sectors (Rein, 2006). In this one-hour Webinar, librarians reflect on the practice and future of this specialized and uniquely valuable role of the librarian providing bioinformatics support.
