Public vs Academic USA Patriot Act dramatically reduced restrictions on law enforcement agencies' ability to search telephone, e-mail communications, medical, financial, and other records; eased restrictions on foreign intelligence gathering within the United States; and library records, including stored electronic data and communications. These enhanced surveillance procedures pose the greatest challenge to privacy and confidentiality in the library. And librarians, stymied by a gag order, are forbidden to tell anyone (except a lawyer). Tattoos
Can get a bachelor’s degree in library science. American library association started offering a Not everyone who works in a library has a library degree. There are libraries who will be staffed by non MLS holders. Doctorates available, Post Master’s Certificates Controversy over staff not having an MLS. Some positions want a librarian with a second degree or do not require an MLS. Seeking a specific background. AHIP-from the Medical Library Association.

Federal and specialized librarians make the most money
I love to read-historical fiction, classics, contemporary fiction Libraries were a place of wonder. Where knowledge is stored. I wanted to know how they got this information? Why were they so smart? Volunteered at my public library. Considered getting a bachelor’s but found out that you had to have a master’s to get a good job. After graduating from college, tried to get a job at a library while in pursuit of master’s. Worked at the Florence A. Moore library which was at the Medical College of Pennsylvania. Promoted to Hahnemann Library which was a part of Drexel. Now I realize it’s not knowing everything, it’s knowing the ways to get there
Faculty-my position is tenure track. There is also a clinical faculty option but that is for librarians who usually don’t teach and do behind the scenes work. Not all librarians who work in universities are tenure track. We are evaluated just like any other faculty member here. Tenure isn’t the same everywhere. Some are evaluated on teaching. Some it’s just a status symbol. Information Seeker-searching for articles, books, literature searches Liaison-for CON. You might here this called Personal Librarian. Some librarians are embedded in departments whether for a few hours a week to full time. Johns Hopkins is doing that now. Mentor-At Drexel, I used to train library school students for reference desk. Joint Practicum with Rush. Outreach-reaching out to community. Members from the public can come to the library. GMR. Medlineplus and other National Library of Medicine resources Promoter-like us on facebook! I write entries for our blog and one towards the College of Nursing called Nursing Tips and Tricks Selector-Doing print book selection since 2010 which I love. Will make recommendations for e-resources. Also Monthly Health Observances Collection Teacher-teach students how to search databases, RefWorks, etc. Techie-social media. Computers in library
Facilitator Just in case-just in time-just for you Search for books and articles based on a topic. Give you pointers on where and how to search Help you find something that you can’t find. How you set up accounts in databases so that you can save your searches, create folders etc. Never think you are interrupting when we’re at the reference desk. Ask me a question. I am doing things at desk while I wait for a question. Clinical-go on rounds. Attend morning reports. Explain Cleo’s role. Will be hiring a clinical librarian at some point. Librarian-provide specialized library services in teaching hospitals and other health organizations by participating in clinical activities and hospital rounds. Informationist-refers to a type of library and information professional who provides library and research services to health professionals in context ( embedded in clinical care or where research is conducted). In the so-called informationist model, the knowledge and skills of a health librarian is coupled with the knowledge of a health researcher. Informaticist medical professional that is trained in computer data analysis and also has specialized training in evidence based medicine and medical treatments.
Libraries are having budgets cut, let go of staff or reduce their collections and space. Libraries are developing methods of assessing their libraries and demonstrating their value. Our collections cost a few millions dollars a year. How can we keep our collections going when our budget is cut? We need to decide what is essential. Technology is making us rethink what we do everyday. For example, what Apple has done with the iPhone and iPad with its apps. These didn’t exist ten years. We didn’t know we needed them. Now apparently we do. In addition to print and computers, there is another method to access our resources that is still evolving. What do we do if we lose access? Who is preserving these online resources? What if Google goes away? A library is not just a place that houses books and journals. It is a place for collaboration, reflection, communication, research. Libraries are becoming one stop shopping. If you need help from IT, student services, Writing Center, or coffee, come to the library. The idea commons at Daley is an example of how we are rethinking our space. At LHS, we built more study rooms and we will getting an information commons with a classroom with computers, etc. Scholarly Communication- Open Access-digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. removes price barriers (subscriptions, licensing fees, pay-per-view fees) and permission barriers (most copyright and licensing restrictions). OA should be immediate, rather than delayed, and should apply to full texts, not just abstracts or summaries. open access model shifts this funding from the point of access (e.g. subscription fees) to the point of dissemination [3 most common is charging a publication fee for each article, ranging from $500 to $1500. These fees may be covered by your department, written in your grant, or the library. Institutional Repositories-ours is indigo
Reference services will disappear. Book collections are obsolete. Libraries are expendable and a luxury because we have Google, etc. Librarians won’t be needed because lower level staff can answer questions, that there are other professions out there who can handle these things now. Databases are so good you won’t need help. Sullivan’s piece was futuristic. This is what could happen if we keep going towards that path.
I took this from a lecture at the Medical Library Association. The library as a place doesn’t have the same meaning but librarians themselves are becoming more important. An example of this is John Hopkins Medical Library, Welch Library. They call it &quot;wherever you are“ Librarians will come to you. Strong electronic collections. Averaging 41 checkouts a day and 106 visits a day. Starting January 1, 2012, they will no longer serve Welch patrons on site. opportunity to find a new mission and purpose for the physical library building. Thus, as of January 1, 2012, we will no longer serve Welch library users on site. We will continue to buy and circulate paper books, and they will be delivered to your office or, for students, to a convenient location near your classrooms. They will continue to borrow materials for you from other libraries. They will continue to answer quick questions by phone or email, and your Informationist will be available to help you with more complex questions and needs. Exception is archives. Collections are not just print. What is essential? How can we share our collections with others? How comprehensive should our collections be? Information Management-Keeping track of information, how do we maintain these resources, how do we conserve these resources? Which format should these remain in? Will these still be relevant? Staying Relevant-concerns over closing libraries, reducing staff, “everything is on the internet”
Grey Literature-refers to a body of materials that cannot be found easily through conventional channels such as publishers. Conference proceedings, abstract, etc. Scirus is an example.
