  • - NML instructs first and second year KSOM students, and develops, distributes and grades assignments to reinforce learning.
  • - Of the 7 librarians, one (Joan) divided her time between NML and CHLA; and one is the Bioinformatics librarian and does not provide “traditional” instruction to students
  • [ELABORATE]
  • Invitations emailed nearly 3 weeks before the focus groups focus groups lasted one hour each
  • Will just focus on the year 1 focus group for the purposes of this presentation questions were asked in order of importance, so that if we didn’t get around to the library website, no big deal
  • Students’ feedback: - haven’t used Ovid MEDLINE since orientation think PubMed would be better since that’s what faculty use, and it’ll be available to them after graduation would prefer other resources, such as ebooks and clinical info tools, instead of Ovid MEDLINE
  • - Had KSOM faculty member present MedWeb, their school student portal
  • NML instructs first and second year KSOM students, and develops, distributes and grades assignments to reinforce learning.
  • Students’ feedback: Assignment is repetitive. That said, they forget how to search as soon as they finish assignment so they have to learn from scratch at the start of each assignment. Defeats purpose of the assignment building on each other (increasing complexity) never use Ovid MEDLINE except for this assignment too much time between distribution & due dates. By the time it’s due, they’ve forgotten about it.
  • Cystic fibrosis is the topic of SPP Case #2 PubMed is taught through online instruction (tutorial) with an assignment based on that tutorial. Optional workshops for in-person instruction will be offered twice that week (with pizza lunch). - All assignments are now pass/fail
  • Students’ responses: Optional lunch sessions are a good idea but will only be attended if there is free food come into class sessions to give 15 minute review of what databases to search and how to search them send emails throughout the year reminding them of personal librarians and student portal
  • Tech Lunch Series topics: Advanced Google Searching; web 2.0 tools; mobile devices website to be discussed on later slides send reminder emails at the start of each quarter and/or when they begin a research project
  • Students’ feedback: Most know who their librarian is but very few contact him/her
  • Students’ feedback: They know about the student portal but think it needs to be linked from MedWeb since that’s where they spend most of their time. the resources on the student portal should include more basic textbooks, medical dictionaries
  • - Student Portal linked from their KSOM MedWeb page
  • Revised resources on student portal added a Systems page added a SPP Case page
  • - Systems page
  • - SPP Case
  • - Started developing and populating our subject guides (LibGuides)
  • We will hold focus groups this May to follow-up and make further improvements After the KSOM focus groups, we held focus groups with the Pharmacy students
