Abstract:
Objective: To determine the educational backgrounds of health science librarians before and while they maintain their current positions. Methods: Many librarians who work in the health sciences field do not have undergraduate or graduate degrees in a STEM field. Most publications about health science librarians’ education focus on job skills librarians should learn to become better information specialists rather than past educational accomplishments. An online survey will be distributed nationally using Qualtrics software. The survey will gather information about medical and health science librarians’ formal educational history and ongoing educational pursuits since accepting their current librarian position.
