Express Outreach: Information Needs Assessment of Unaffiliated North Dakota Rural Health Professionals and Biomedical Researchers
University of North Dakota (UND) Health Sciences Library librarians will develop or select appropriate information needs assessment tools and methods to assess the information needs of unaffiliated North Dakota rural health professionals. After Institutional Review Board approval is received, rural health professionals will be invited to share their perspectives regarding their information needs. The project team will assess the data received and complete a final report summarizing the data analysis process and findings. This project will provide a clear rationale for future outreach planning with regard to unaffiliated North Dakota rural health professionals, give potential participants in future outreach events an opportunity to provide input to guide the planning process, and also point out to potential participants their input is valued in the Library's outreach planning process.
