The Middle Atlantic Region (MAR) RML is co-sponsoring a study about the value of libraries on patient care. This study is not limited to the Middle Atlantic Region; in fact, study personnel would like to have participation from all NN/LM regions. The study, the Value of Library and Information Services in Patient Care, will be conducted by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Using an online survey and interviews, the study will investigate the impact of library resources and services on clinical decision-making. Study facilitators will be asked to identify an institutional champion to help promote the study, and to distribute the online survey to physicians, residents, and nurses in their institution. The survey will be launched in March 2011.
If you are interested in participating, please complete the Study Participation Interest Form. You will be contacted by the study team regarding your library’s eligibility, and about how to get started. If you would like a mentor to provide support and answer questions, one of the study team members will be happy to work closely with you.
