Open Access Use in Health Care Workshop at JABSOM Health Sciences Library on March 29, 2013

Supporting Open Access: Librarians as advocates, researchers, educators and role models

Lauren Maggio from Stanford will be teaching in three locations in our Pacific Southwest Region this year, one of which is scheduled at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, John A. Burns School of Medicine Health Sciences Library in Kakaako on the island of Oahu in March.

Class Description:

As stewards of knowledge, librarians have an instrumental role to play in supporting open access (OA) initiatives, such as the NIH Public Access Policy. As a component of a Pacific Southwest RML Express Outreach Award, this workshop was developed to engage librarians in an active discussion of the current state of OA through hands-on, case-based activities. Participants will be challenged to think critically about their roles as advocates, role models, researchers, collection developers and educators and to share best practices. To support this discussion, the instructors will present emerging data on how health personnel use and perceive biomedical literature in their clinical practice and will also introduce implications for OA policies. The instructors will also demonstrate the methods utilized in ascertaining these data and brainstorm ways in which the librarian community can collaborate to continue growing this evidence base.

The course is taught by Lauren A Maggio, MS (LIS), MA, Lane Medical Library & Knowledge Management Center, Stanford University Medical Center and Laura Moorhead, MS of the Stanford University School of Education.

Classes are free. They begin at 10 a.m. and end at 3 p.m.  MLA CE credit hours are available.  Workshops will be held on the following dates and locations:
