  • As evaluations can be completed at any time during the survey period (April 4 to 18),
  • under developed skill – using evidence in our own practices Under developed skill – critical appraisal research skills in graduate Library school curriculum are minimal so we need to create space for librarians in practice Need to develop research priorities Engage in research communities If we succeed in this the library becomes seen as a knowledge centre that is a co-creator of knowledge closely connected with active research groups
  • Ubioquitous - being present everywhere at once At their core, all models of ubiquitous computing (also called pervasive computing) share a vision of small, inexpensive, robust networked processing devices, distributed at all scales throughout everyday life and generally turned to distinctly common-place ends. For example, a domestic ubiquitous computing environment might interconnect lighting and environmental controls with personal biometric monitors woven into clothing so that illumination and heating conditions in a room might be modulated, continuously and imperceptibly. Another common scenario posits refrigerators "aware" of their suitably-tagged contents, able to both plan a variety of menus from the food actually on hand, and warn users of stale or spoiled food. Description Progress in ubiquitous computing, social networking, medical informatics and IT technologies has resulted in a new generation of healthcare systems. Ubiquitous Health and Medical Informatics: The Ubiquity 2.0 Trend and Beyond provides insight into the various trends, innovations, and organizational challenges of contemporary ubiquitous health and medical informatics. Contributions highlight changes to healthcare distribution that will significantly revolutionize the exchange between healthcare providers and consumers.

Eroding Library Role? <ul><li>If libraries do not seriously rethink their role in the lives of researchers, they could come to be seen more as resource purchasers than as research collaborators, according to a report released April 7, 2010 by the nonprofit group Ithaka S+R. </li></ul><ul><li>“ As scholars have grown better able to reach needed materials directly online, the library has been increasingly disintermediated from research processes,” write the authors of the report, which is based on a national survey of professors administered last year.” </li></ul>
