  • Volume 26 Issue 1 - Undertaking a usability study on the information
           seeking behaviour of hospital library users
    • Abstract: Ritchie, Kathryn
      The Western Health Library Service undertook a usability study of its intranet site to determine users' habits and capacity in finding information. This follows an earlier usability study in 2014 that prompted significant changes to the site. The library service plays a critical role in providing access to the most relevant and current information to support medical, allied, and nursing staff. The changes to the intranet were designed to facilitate this, so content from the intranet could be retrieved quickly and efficiently. The most recent usability study aimed to discover how the functionality of the site was used, how users navigated it, and whether further changes needed to be made to improve its performance. Valuable feedback was retrieved during the testing process that has enabled the library to understand users' behaviour, and to implement further enhancements to aid searching and discovery.

    • Abstract: Cullis, Jeremy; Nichols-Boyd, Mina; Auld, Yvonne; Dempster, Natalie; Freeman, Cassandra; May, Nikki; Chang, Steven; van Balen, Jane; Thorning, Sarah; Romic, Jasna; Day, Susan; Whyte, Tracey
      This article is a collective reflection on the sixth Australian Evidence-Based Practice Librarians' Institute (AEBPLI), which was held in Adelaide in December 2016 at Flinders University. The event was an intensive four-day residential program, covering key topics in health librarianship such as expert searching, critical appraisal, grey literature, and search filters. Almost thirty participants from a range of institutions across the country attended the course, which included both large group lectures and small group interactive workshops.

  • Volume 26 Issue 1 - Putting a face to a name: Promoting your health
           library at a medical conference
    • Abstract: Foley, Laura; Prentice, John
      The Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) Library provides a full range of services and resources to anaesthetist fellows and trainees located throughout the Australia and New Zealand region, as well as to the College staff who support them. This inevitably brings with it the challenges of providing and promoting the library to nearly 7000 remote and specialist users in an almost entirely online environment.

      Although we are lucky to have regular contact with library colleagues in Melbourne, it was valuable to share with and learn from interstate colleagues. Under the 'value' banner the program was split into research, marketing and advocacy themes.

  • Volume 22 Issue 1/2 - QR code use in a hospital library
    • Abstract: Siemensma, Gemma
      At Ballarat Health Services (BHS) Library we have been using QR Codes for just over a year. QR or Quick Response barcodes are 2-D tags that can hold information such as URLS, contact information, photos and more. They are read with a barcode reader on a smartphone and have become an increasingly popular way to do mobile marketing and promotion (1). They are particularly popular in retail and real estate. For example on price tags they link you to relevant consumer information and on real estate boards they may link to a video or additional photos.

    • Abstract: Voutier, Catherine
      This was the first Medical Library Association (MLA) annual conference that I've attended, and I plan to attend some more in the future. That wasn't why I wanted to attend though; it was the International Clinical Librarians Conference (ICLC) I was mainly interested in. The fact that it was being held alongside MLA as part of the International Congress on Medical Librarianship (ICML) was a bonus!

    • Abstract: Voutier, Catherine
      Methodological developments in advanced bibliographic searching and assessing research impact'. This was the title we (David Kaunelis, from the Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health, and I) came up with for the Information Resources Group (IRG) workshop, held as part of the pre-conference program of Health Technology Assessment international's HTAi2013. Research impact is the odd one out here as it is a topic not generally covered in systematic review workshops. We included this submission because it is a relevant topic of interest to the wider HTAi community. Also, as a workshop we got extra points for having Korean presenters!

      With winter setting in and budget cuts and price rises beginning to bite hard, the Health Libraries Inc. (HLI) Training Day at the State Library of Victoria was a perfect tonic. The day was a good balance between product presentations and training from EBSCO and MIMS and sessions run by librarians.

    • Abstract: Callinan, Margaret
      Out of the blue and more than a year in advance, I received notice of a wedding in Boston, USA, set for May 2011; a wedding I didn't want to miss. And so the planning began. Although I hadn't been at Austin Health all that long, Chief Librarian Anne McLean graciously approved eight weeks leave for me and my colleagues uncomplainingly covered for me during my absence. I chose 10 cities to visit in the US and Canada, one of them being Washington DC. That, of course, is a short, easy Metro ride from the National Library of Medicine in Bethesda, Maryland.

    • Abstract: Pitt, Karen
      The need for all organizations to include an assessment of both intellectual property assets and intellectual property risk as part of their governance process is emphasized. Five situations as in photocopying, scanning, emailing and intranet storage of articles and other textual works where relatively simple actions will support better compliance and minimize risk exposure are highlighted. Some tips for ensuring copyright compliance are also provided.

           2009-11
    • Abstract: Ritchie, Ann
      A two-year national research project into the workforce and education requirements of the health libraries sector in Australia was undertaken by Health Libraries Australia (HLA), and funded by a grant received from the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA). The main aim of the research was: 'To determine the future requirements for health librarians in the workforce in Australia and develop a structured, modular education framework (postgraduate qualification and continuing professional development structure) to meet these requirements'. It was known that in order to comply with national trends in health professional workforce planning, a systematic approach to education and professional development was required, and that HLA needed to show leadership in this strategic initiative by bringing together the various stakeholder groups so each could contribute to designing and implementing such a system. The methodology consisted of national online surveys of health librarians and health library managers, and interviews with health librarian employers. The design was informed by an international literature review exploring research about education for future roles and responsibilities for health librarians; an environmental scan to determine the main trends and drivers for change in the national healthcare context; and a consultation session with health librarians from a diverse range of sectors. The Final Report has been endorsed by the ALIA Board of Directors and recommends initiatives in the areas of national health workforce planning and development; education and professional development based on competency-based standards and scopes-of-practice for health information professionals; and partnering with providers to deliver education programs tailored to the needs of health librarianship.

  • Volume 20 Issue 3 - Impressions of libraries and bookshops in London,
           Oxford and Dublin
    • Abstract: Due, Stephen
      In London last April the sun was shining and there were spring flowers in all the city parks. The galleries and museums were full of noisy tourists and small flocks of French and German schoolchildren. European languages could be heard everywhere in the busy streets and cafes around Trafalgar Square and the West End. In the old market at Covent Garden opera singers busked to wild applause among the lunchtime crowds.

  • Volume 21 Issue 1/2 - e-Books: The last frontier
    • Abstract: Due, Stephen
      Australian health libraries have developed first class lending collections - but do we still need them' Our lending shelves currently hold up to about 7000 books (on average) per library and consume about a fifth of our resources budgets. This has been a good investment, as book loans in hospital libraries have risen by fifty percent in the last ten years. Nevertheless the arrival of the e-book is forcing health libraries to reassess the value of the printed book.

  • Volume 21 Issue 1/2 - A snapshot of Australian healthcare publications
           registries and repositories 2011
    • Abstract: Chadwick, Ben; Wishart, Jo; Zalitis, Aina
      Those of us charged with recording organisational publications may liken it to trying to round up a group of capricious youngsters to sit still for a school photo. The trick is to gain cooperation before asking them to do something that doesn't come naturally, but the question remains: how' Capturing output and recording publications is a challenge beset by barriers. Lack of awareness, resistance to 'additional' administrative work, copyright and plagiarism concerns, and insufficient institutional support are well documented as impediments to capture alone - without going into the necessary funding, infrastructure and technology to record and store data, as well as variations in what is included in an institutional repository (IR).

  • Volume 20 Issue 3 - Getting up to speed: Reflections of new health
           librarians at La Trobe University
    • Abstract: Mitchell, Jennifer; Murphy, Fiona; Wiese, Katie
      Commencing a new job is a time of many challenges and changes. People often experience a wide range of emotions, from excitement and relief at getting that sought-after position to anxiety or fear about what lies ahead. In 2010, three new faculty librarians joined the Health Sciences team at La Trobe University Library Melbourne campus. Whilst these new librarians brought with them a variety of skills and expertise, they lacked experience in health librarianship. This brought many challenges not only for the new staff but for their trainers as well, especially as a new curriculum focus on Evidence Based Practice (EBP) was being introduced at the same time. This paper will focus on the reflections of these three new health librarians and describe how they developed the core competencies required for these positions.

      In May 2005, OpenURL institutional linking functionality in Google Scholar became available for any library or information centre with a participating link resolver. The integration of library-specific links has provided opportunities for libraries to promote and advocate their purchased resources and ensure their end users have easy access to the full range of their electronic holdings through an internet search engine.
