    • New Beginning for Clinical Librarians: Getting the Program off the Ground

      Blake, Lindsay; Gaines, Julie K.; UGA/GRU Partnership Campus; Georgia Regents University (2012-11)
      Question: How to integrate Librarians into existing clinical structures. Setting: Children’s and regional hospitals and clinics in Georgia where Georgia Health Sciences students and faculty are affiliated. Participants: Two Librarians at Georgia Health Sciences University located in two cities working with various hospital departments and faculty. Methods: Librarians work with departments in the hospitals and area clinics to integrate Evidence Based Medicine(EBM) and Patient and Family Centered Care(PFCC) into the medical student and resident education. Both of the Librarians are starting clinical librarian services. The services are in two different cities and stages in the medical education. One Librarian started in an established position working with residents and students in Family Medicine and Pediatrics, but had to rebuild after years of vacancy. The other Librarian is working with a new clerkship program so she is working directly with the clerkship directors to find ways to get involved with the students as they begin their clinical rotations. Main Finding: Librarians found various ways to assimilate themselves into the existing clinical structure. The methods they used varied by campus, hospital and/or department. Librarians were incorporated into a number of activities including: morning report, rounding, journal club, academic half days and scholarly projects. Conclusions: The Librarians found that various methods needed to be employed to incorporate their assistance in the hospital and clinical departments. The importance of communication and getting to know the clinical department environment and key players helps the Librarians to integrate into the structure.
    • The New Normal at GRU Libraries: Managing Change/Seeking Innovation

      Feher, Virginia; Davies, Kathy J; Verburg, Fay L; McCarrell, Kyle; Mears, Kim; Reese Library (Georgia Regents University, 2013-05-16)
      On January 8th 2013, Augusta State University and Georgia Health Sciences University consolidated to form Georgia Regents University. With this consolidation, ASU Reese Library and GHSU Robert B. Greenblatt, M.D. Library administratively combined. The two libraries serve very different user populations. Reese provides access to a broad range of information resources for undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and community users. Greenblatt provides access to evidence-based resources in support of teaching, research, and clinical care for students, faculty, community users, and the GRU Health System. As part of the consolidation process, Reese and Greenblatt faculty and staff collaborated on reconciling differences in policies, procedures, service models, collection development, and library governance, all while seeking opportunities to enhance and innovate services. In this panel presentation, Reese and Greenblatt librarians will address challenges faced in the consolidation process, including combining GIL catalogs, expanding the liaison program, planning a consolidated website, and learning how to navigate differences in organizational culture.

    • On Campus or Out of Town: How Publishing Online Tutorials Can Help Your Patrons

      Blake, Lindsay; Robert B. Greenblatt, MD Library, Georgia Regents University, Augusta, GA (Computers in Libraries, 2009-04)
      The article discusses online tutorials and publishing for distance-education programs of libraries. It is noted that online publishing is growing because of the emergence of online databases, electronic journals and electronic books. Libraries, on the other hand, prefer face-to-face teaching instead of online tutorial. It is recommended that libraries determine which topics to tackle in tutorials before developing them.

    • ORCID Implementation at Georgia Regents University

      Mears, Kim; Robert B. Greenblatt, M.D. Library (2015-05-17)
      ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) offers a solution to name ambiguity within the publishing world, as well as a method for scholars to maintain a professional record of scholarly activities. The Georgia Regents University Libraries facilitated the adoption and integration of ORCID throughout the GRU campus community by actively engaging faculty and graduate students, as well as integrating ORCID into key university systems. The library collaborated with the University’s Department of Human Resources (HR) and BioMed Central to enhance the adoption and integration of ORCID identifiers in university systems, including the institution’s digital repository, Scholarly Commons, and the University’s Human Resources Management System (HRMS). The library has also begun to focus on educating graduate students on the benefits of ORCID as they begin to build their research portfolio. Librarians can assist their institution in improving research information infrastructure and ORCID is unique because it is the only researcher identifier integrated into grant and manuscript submission systems. This project benefits researchers and the University by increasing the adoption and use of ORCID identifiers and supporting efforts to reduce confusion in regards to common or international names. This is especially important when scholarly productivity has a direct impact on promotion and tenure. ORCID integration in Scholarly Commons was completed in September 2014. Successes and challenges along with the librarians’ educational efforts to introduce ORCID will be reviewed.
