    • Access to Health Information: Outreach Efforts to Ronald McDonald House Augusta

      Bandy, Sandra L.; Brewster, Tamara; University Libraries (Georgia Regents University, 2015-10)
      Objective: The library seeks to improve the use of reliable electronic health information to fill this information need for an under-served population in crisis. In 2014, a new and larger Ronald McDonald House (RMH) opened in Augusta across a shared parking lot of the Robert B, Greenblatt, M.D. Library. Currently, there are no health information resources available in the house. The house staff/volunteers have shared that they have received questions about health information but are advised not to give medical advice. Methods: A computer designated for accessing health information and a small selection of printed materials has been made available within the RMH. The library is in position to train the RMH house staff/volunteers on consumer health resources and how to evaluate reliable web resources. This will allow them to promote authoritative health resources for families/caregivers of children who are receiving medical treatment at the Children’s Hospital of Georgia. A health information web page has been developed and is accessible through the RMH portal. This web page is also being used as a class outline for hands-on computer training sessions for RMH staff. Results: The results of the training within the past six months will be presented along with suggested improvements for the staff who are teaching caregivers how to access health information. Conclusion: Parents will do anything for their child, especially when they are sick. Often they turn to the internet searching for answers. The library recognized the potential to build a positive partnership with the community. Using our expertise to aid this under-served population will assist parents in finding authoritative and up-to-date information health information resources. This project has been funded in whole or in part with Federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract No. HHS-N-276-2011-00004-C with the University of Maryland Baltimore.
    • Importance of Chapter Membership: a 20-year Data Analysis

      Bandy, Sandra L.; Mears, Kim; University Libraries (Georgia Health Sciences University, 2012-10)
      Objective This project analyzes twenty years of recorded membership data from one of the fourteen chapters affiliated with the Medical Library Association (MLA). A search of the literature revealed national level program evaluations, new initiatives, and lessons learned but no Chapter-level articles specifically on membership. Outcomes will illustrate trends in membership and the possible need for stronger guidelines in retaining members. Methods Southern Chapter of the Medical Library Association has used FileMaker for recording membership information. Information includes years of service to the organization plus year joined, contact information, committee volunteer request, AHIP level, library type, and membership to MLA. The data collected is also used for the annual printed membership directory. Several data sets will be gathered to study the dynamics of the Chapter, longevity of members, and retention based on the introduction of a 2-year free student membership. Results From 1992 to 2012, the average membership for the Southern Chapter was 359 members. The highest membership occurred in 1996 with 402 members and the lowest membership occurred in 2006 with 285. Data trends demonstrate a drop in state membership levels in the corresponding state that hosted the annual meeting the following year. Membership rates also dropped when the annual meeting was hosted outside of the Chapter region. Development of new medical schools around the region resulted in a 62% increase in academic librarians’ membership while hospital librarians have seen a 45% drop in membership rates. Other data collected included types of MLA membership and librarians’ membership to the Academy of Health Information Professionals (AHIP). In 2008 the Chapter adopted a 2-year free student membership, with an average of 20 members per year since then. In its five year history, we have had 47 student members with 10 students joining the Chapter as a full member after the free membership expired. Conclusions According to the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE), the average retention rate is between 82%-90%. Southern Chapter’s overall retention rate is 89%, affirming the value librarians receive through membership. Data also revealed that student retention is 63%, which is below acceptable ASAE guidelines so additional support may be needed. A search of the literature suggested guidelines to increase retention rates of student members.
    • Transforming Print to Electronic Theses and Dissertations

      Bandy, Sandra L.; University Libraries (Augusta University, 2018-05-22)
      Objective: In response to a changing environment, the library collaborated with The Graduate School (TGS) to transition from print to electronic theses and dissertations (ETD). Since graduate students are writing their thesis and dissertations on a computer, the library initiated the electronic submission to provide long-term archiving of ETDs. This paper discusses new submission processes, including successful strategies and lessons learned. Methods: The University’s existing institutional repository is the new host for ETDs allowing students to upload their final thesis or dissertation into the repository. TGS worked with ProQuest to create an online ETD administrator for students. An ETD Microsoft Word template was designed and programmed by the library according to Graduate School specifications and approved by TGS administrators. TGS dissertation and thesis preparation manual was updated to reflect new formatting and template requirements and a second alternative template was developed for student use. To introduce the new process and workflow to PhD program directors, librarians attended TGS Council meeting. A Graduate School LibGuide for TGS was amended to provide instruction on the new ETD standards and process including the need for additional face-to-face instruction on ETDs. The Library developed an ETD bootcamp for the new process. Results: After reviewing the initial submission process, the library partnered with ProQuest to simplify their procedures. The library worked with ProQuest to create a Sword protocol for automatic deposits of metadata and PDF files to the repository. Students no longer deposit their final thesis or dissertation into the repository but only to ProQuest eliminating a step in the submission process. Conclusions: Collaborating with our university's Graduate School created a unique partnership that resulted in new library ETD services for graduate students. Future work with ETDs will focus on retrospectively digitizing the library’s print dissertations.
