Target Outreach Subcontract: A Day in the Life, Mapping Project...

Target Outreach Subcontract: A Day in the Life Mapping Project: Applying ethnographic methods to clinical health information research. The first objective of this project is to understand how fledgling clinicians find answers to clinical questions and if those answers enhance and support their clinical decision-making. The second objective is to understand the role of the library and other information sources in meeting these informaton needs. The third objective is to test this particular ethnographic method to see if it is a viable tool for adding to the body of library evidence-based practice, and therefore applicable for use elsewhere.
