Clinical and Translational Science Research: Library Support 2012

We would like to invite librarians interested in or currently involved in library services targeted to clinical and translational science researchers to participate in this study.  Several potential roles for libraries and librarians are covered in this survey, including literature searching, instruction, data management, bioinformatics, collaboration and community engagement support.

This study follows up on a similar study conducted in the winter of 2011.  It is designed to chart the growth of services over the last year, as well as include librarians beyond those working with institutions which have received Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA).  Participants in the current study are NOT required to have participated in the 2011 study.

For the purposes of this study, “clinical and translational science” includes all research efforts and collaborations designed to facilitate the transfer of laboratory data into clinical practice and community health.  We are interested in your responses whether or not your institution has received a CTSA, and regardless of your location, as long as your library serves researchers in clinical and translational science.

Note that the survey has been designed to let only one participant respond on a specific computer.  That participant may interrupt the survey and then return to complete it on that computer, as long as cookies are not cleared.
