a. finland 2007 woman medical library and new technologies

  1. 1. Nowadays, modern libraries set more and more requirements to librarians in Health Care Institutions. The most important thing is to keep up with all trends in medical science following from new achievements in medicine. A librarian has to improve skills constantly to find proper information for library users. This is not easy taking into consideration all requests of medical professionals and developments in oncology. The modern librarian is standing between two sciences with expanding roles - information technology and medical science. During the last 15 years living conditions in Serbia changed. Now, as a country in transition, electronic services and databases with medical literature are provided by the Ministry of Science and the National Library of Serbia. Librarians have taken efforts to acquire skills in searching database and electronic services to find a proper literature. All institutions in the consortium of libraries in Serbia are connected to the academic network end have free access to numerous publishers and articles in full text. Free access is provided via KoBSON (Konzorcijum Biblioteka Srbije za Objedinjenu Nabavku) on the site of National Library of Serbia. Where to find the scientific information and how to make it visible to users? Web 2.0 presents a new and almost unlimited source for scientific information. Librarians are facing a new role: to develop information science and to promote medical websites as a Science 2.0 and Library 2.0. What does it mean to be solo librarian i.e. one woman library? That position brings problems called isolation. Without replacement you are not able to participate in conferences nor to attend courses. Only with participating in Annual Meetings and conferences, sharing experience and following new trends in Continuing Medical Education and new technologies as Web 2.0 and Library 2.0, being an information specialist can be a creative and the most amusing profession. The use of web2.0 and her sophisticated possibilities to distribute and share information among the users of the modern libraries makes it possible let the one woman library exist and keep customers informed about new information in an easy and accessible way.
