Interested in what Medical Librarians do? Do you want to become a Health Science Librarian or know someone who is interested?
Simmons College Continuing Education is hosting a webinar “Introduction to Medical Librarianship” on Tuesday, March 29th, 12:00-1:00 PM EST.
This webinar will introduce attendees to the exciting career of medical librarianship. The webinar will present an overview of the field, including a discussion of what medical librarians do, who they serve, the settings in which they work, and the types of resources they use. Medical librarians play an important role as members of the patient care team, support the educational mission of students in the health professions and partner with researchers in advancing scientific discoveries from the bench to the bedside. New roles for medical librarians such as: conducting systematic reviews to inform patient care decision making, designing health literacy programs and services, teaching the principles of evidence-based medicine, and creating research data management services will be emphasized.
Presented by Elaine R. Martin, MSLS, DA, Director of Library Services, Lamar Soutter Library, and Director, National Network of Libraries of Medicine, New England Region, at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester. Dr. Martin is a professor of practice at the School of Library and Information Science at Simmons College, Boston, teaching courses in medical librarianship, library management and scientific research data management.
