  • 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.

  • Volume 25 Issue 2 - Evidence-based learning: Interactive, online EBP
           modules for first year nursing. A case study
    • Abstract: Kelly, Blair; Rawson, Chris; Freestone, Chrissy; Russell, Fiona
      Deakin University Library designed a series of six modules to provide interactive, online learning for a first year nursing unit, Understanding Research Evidence. The modules were developed in response to the changing learning requirements of students in the digital age. Delivered using Smart Sparrow software, the modules were designed to assist students in the development and consolidation of their understandings of evidence-based practice (EBP).

      The development of the modules represents a shift from unilateral communication to interactive content. Previously, online support had largely consisted of static material that was not presented in the context of curriculum. The Library has now developed integrated content that allows for interactivity, but which may also be customised for other purposes or units across all health disciplines.

      Feedback and data collected from the modules indicate an encouraging degree of engagement with the content. Data also allows the Library to ensure the continuous improvement of the modules. Library staff have also reported on their improved capacity and confidence in creating learning experiences that integrate core information and digital literacy competencies with students' curriculum. Staff also report improvements in their ability to use technologies to create online learning objects.

  • Volume 25 Issue 2 - Increasing the visibility of the library service: Our
           organic structure
    • Abstract: Smyth, Wendy; Renison, Bronia; D'Arrietta, Louisa M
      Background: Some five years ago, the library director was a co-investigator on a collaborative research study that aimed to support nurses and midwives in rural and remote health facilities to engage with research. The intervention included delivering locally-relevant education and resources, including those usually only available in the tertiary hospital where the health library is physically located. The library staff were actively involved in designing and delivering components of that education. Over the six-month intervention period, relationships were nurtured and sustained through informal videoconference, email and telephone communication channels. An ancillary outcome of that study was the increased utilisation of library clinical information resources for by staff of the participating sites, including those not directly participating in the study.

      Objective: Subsequently, the health library aimed to instigate locally-relevant strategies to increase service visibility across a very large health service in north Queensland, where the physical library space had decreased. The objective has been to transition from a 'library as a place' to a 'library as a service' model.

      Method: A collaborative, consultative approach was adopted to transition to a 'library as a service' model. It was important to maximise the library's physical resources at the tertiary hospital while extending ways to connect with staff at rural and remote facilities, respond promptly to requests, and take advantage of every opportunity to boost the library's visibility. A brainstorming exercise with the library's staff, followed by a modified Delphi technique, was used to clarify how the visibility of the library service has increased over the past five years.

      Results: The visibility of the library service has increased in many ways over that timeframe. Three main themes arose from the brainstorming exercise: 'interacting with patrons', 'reaching out to potential patrons', and 'increasing information literacy skills'.

      Conclusions: The physical library has retained its high-visibility location and the library service has grown through developing its outreach service and links with staff at rural and remote sites. Collaborative, fully integrated librarian-nurse researcher teaching has been formalised, and informal sharing of expert knowledge has helped to increase the visibility of the library service. These successes have built upon one another; however, it remains essential to establish, grow and maintain relationships with those remote to the physical library.

    • Abstract: Ruddy, Christine
      The 2016 HLI conference 'lightning talks' provided a valuable update on activities being undertaken by libraries in the field, as well as interesting insights into various aspects of health librarianship. The talks covered a range of topics, including deals negotiated by the Victorian Health Libraries Consortium (VHLC), news from the Health Libraries Managers' Forum, what it's like to switch from a hospital library to a university library, and a great new project that demonstrates the contribution and value of libraries to their organisations.

    • Abstract: Schembri, Loretta
      This year I was lucky enough to attend the ALIA Health Libraries Australia (HLA) Professional Development Day in Sydney, supported by my relatively new workplace (The Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists - ANZCA). The theme of the day, 'Innovation for enhancing library value' was of particular interest to me, given the types of projects ANZCA Library is undertaking. The benefits of seeing what fellow health library organisations are talking about, planning and achieving made this type of event accessible to everyone in the health library community.

  • Volume 25 Issue 2 - Beyond the shelf: Opportunities for connections
           outside the library walls
    • Abstract: Beck-Swindale, Teresa
      To remain visible and indeed credible in the eyes of healthcare staff, the library manager needs to seize every opportunity to embed the library service in the workings of the hospital and the wider healthcare region. For the librarian at Buttfield Library, Burnie, Tasmania, the predicament of being relocated to temporary accommodation for three years while building development took place, prompted creative solutions to connect with staff and maintain a strong presence by participating in working groups and committees as a library promotion strategy.

      Attending meetings armed with relevant resources to assist decision-making reinforces the library's role as information provider. By venturing outside the library walls and becoming involved in the business of healthcare, the health librarian can inspire the trust essential to working relationships. As a trusted collaborator, the librarian is then relied upon as an authoritative provider of information, cementing the circle of knowledge for the benefit of patients and staff.

  • Volume 25 Issue 2 - Clinical knowledge centre: Libguides beyond the
           library
    • Abstract: Edwards, Jane; Elder, Kylie
      Objective: To provide a mechanism for current, evidence based clinical information to be delivered to a geographically dispersed and remote nursing workforce in a timely and effective manner. Method The Libguides platform was used to develop relevant guides in a central site called the Clinical Knowledge Centre (CKC). Stakeholder meetings, workshops and expert knowledge informed the content and design of the site to ensure standardisation and relevancy of information. The project was driven by the librarian with ownership and content management of the CKC belonging to the senior clinical nurse advisors.

      Results: Six individual guides were developed in the areas of Continence/Urology, Wound, Palliative Care, Medicines Management, Diabetes and Aged Care/Dementia. Clinical staff have a 'one stop shop' platform to access current, evidence based information and are more connected to clinical specialists. The introduction of Libguides as an organisational resource raised the profile of the librarian and the library service.

      Conclusion: As a result of the CKC project the profile of the 'invisible' librarian has extended beyond the realm of information provision and into the core of the organisation, with a direct impact on service quality and workforce capacity. It also demonstrates that the Libguide product can be used in a clinical setting with team engagement and combined commitment to provide a mechanism to deliver clinical information to a geographically dispersed workforce.

    • Abstract: O'Sullivan, Arlene; Clements, Charlotte
      In our presentation we share the La Trobe University Library's perspective on the future readiness of the eBook format from both the library and the user's perspectives. Examining eBook selection and usage, the eBook publishing landscape, reports on user experience, we ask the question "When is an eBook not an eBook'" To demonstrate how eBook purchasing and use is managed at La Trobe University, we present a case study that gives a five year snapshot of eBook use on a major platform - ProQuest eBook Central. The case study looks at how eBook use is increasing, decisions regarding purchasing vs patron driven acquisition (PDA), and the future of eBook access. An overview of the recently updated ProQuest eBook Central platform is included.

    • Abstract: Chang, Steven; Kavanagh-Ryan, Kit
      Rock star librarian, David Lankes, delivered a rousing, almost evangelical keynote to kick off VALA 2016 with a bang through his speech 'Librarianship: Saving the World One Community at a Time' (2). The collective response to this presentation was mixed. His many supporters walked out feeling inspired by his rallying calls to globally empower grassroots communities. By contrast, skeptics brushed aside the torrent of gushing #VALA16 tweets and dismissed his keynote as starry-eyed idealism.

  • Volume 25 Issue 1 - QUT health librarianship essentials course: My
           experience
    • Abstract: Howard, Sarah
      A liaison librarian's career can be very exciting. Mine certainly has been. Over the past nine years, my journey at QUT has involved liaising with academics and professional staff from Theology, Philosophy, Psychology, and Education, through to the QUT International College. In early 2016, a new adventure began for me as I stepped into the role of QUT Liaison Librarian for the School of Nursing and the School Optometry and Vision Science. Health is an area in which I have some knowledge and experience. I quickly learned, however, that I needed to further build upon these skills. My manager suggested I apply for the QUT Health Librarianship Essentials short course as part of my professional development plan. I did, and I am very grateful for it.

           librarians in health libraries - an interview with Duncan Pilcher
    • Abstract: Chang, Steven
      Can you tell us about your journey in becoming an IT/systems-centric librarian'

      I managed to take the long way around to becoming a Systems Librarian. I had always been a computer geek, but my original interest was in the medical field as a radiographer. There were very few places at RMIT, so I ended up in applied physics instead. Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, I discovered two things while studying physics: 1) I was terrible at high-level mathematics, 2) Socialising at university was so much more fun than attending lectures. Needless to say, I did not stay long at RMIT.

And if you don't learn anything new, it can still be reassuring to confirm you're doing things right. On a rainy Friday afternoon, speakers Allan Finn (Senior Training Manager) and James Taylor (Manager Sales Engineering and Training) demonstrated their knowledge of Ovid functionalities and shared an assortment of tips for 'doing things right' in terms of structured searching and search filters.

      The Victorian Health Libraries Consortium (VHLC) was formed in 2004 by Stephen Due (former Chief Librarian, Barwon Health Library Service, now retired) and others, after continuation of the Clinicians Health Channel (CHC) - an online health information portal provided to public sector health professionals by the Victorian Department of Health - was threatened. The Clinicians Health Channel survived, and the VHLC thrived, offering package deals to Victorian health libraries for online journals and databases not covered by the CHC.

    • Abstract: Siemensma, Gemma
      In early July 2015 I headed to sunny Queensland with assistance from the Pat Nakouz Award from Health Libraries Inc. to attend the 8th International Evidence Based Library and Information Practice Conference (EBLIP8). The EBLIP conference is a biennial event that aims to promote the use of the best available evidence in practices and processes particular to the library and information profession. Everything at the conference centred on 'evidence'. EBLIP define evidence as something that may include a diverse range of legitimate sources that librarians use in their decision‐making processes, including quantitative and qualitative research, publications, locally collected statistics, open‐access data and 'soft' sources, such as accumulated knowledge, opinion, instinct and relationships. For me, the most interesting papers were those that centred on the health field and those with a direct link to the daily work we undertake.

      Recently, library staff at Ballarat Health Services (BHS), each with differing levels of familiarity and skill, were provided an iPad with which to familiarise themselves within the context of library tasks and responsibilities. This included assisting BHS staff and students to load and utilise apps available through the Clinicians Health Channel (CHC), and also introducing them to the newly acquired BrowZine app, which enables users to access and manipulate library‐subscribed journals on their mobile devices. I had no experience at all with using a tablet and the following is a record of my journey.

    • Abstract: Siemensma, Gemma
      The 12th Health Libraries Inc. conference started with clinical keynote presenter Associate Professor Peter Morley from the Royal Melbourne Hospital. This was a fabulous way to begin the conference as it helped to reinforce and focus the audience on 'why we do what we do'. Health libraries, though similar to other libraries in many aspects, are unique and special in their own way. Daily, those of us who work in libraries such as ones found in hospitals are ensuring that the services we provide are targeted, and the best available resources and evidence are available to clinicians to use seamlessly at the point of care.

  • Volume 24 Issue 2 - Clinically tested - free range: Establishing a
           clinical librarian role at a major teaching hospital
    • Abstract: Baxter, Helen
      Every moment of clinical care prompts questions about diagnosis, causality, treatment plans or medication, to name a few. From supplying immediate evidence at the bedside in the intensive care unit, through to searches that support workplace reform, major purchasing decisions for hospital equipment or clinical safety and risk projects - the 'free range' clinical librarian has a crucial role to 'build and walk' the bridge between the evidence to be found in health literature and those seeking the answers. The presence of a clinical librarian in the hospital setting is not new and has been discussed in the academic literature since these roles were first established in the 1970s (6). Although Austin Health is a long‐established institution in Melbourne's north‐east, the clinical librarian role has only been a feature of our library service for approximately 12 months. In this formative phase, breaking out of the shell of more established models of librarianship has been exciting, and has also taught us some valuable lessons. Mobility and flexibility are the keys to delivering clinical information to support clinicians and frontline health practitioners. Creating tailored education and training programs serves to build the capacity of the organisation by equipping staff and students to be self‐sufficient in accessing evidence. A clinical librarian who is not confined to the four walls of the library is a key part of the library being seen, and heard, and utilised.

      The systematic review has become a standard research process in the health sciences and is also infiltrating into other subject areas. It is an essential tool that underpins the synthesis of medical literature for informed decision‐making. The systematic review requires explicit and systematic methods that can be reproduced by others. It uses a scientific methodology that is designed to remove bias and comprehensively identify, appraise and synthesise relevant literature (1).

      Innovative changes are afoot in the world of evidence synthesis. These changes are being prompted by a raft of challenges in the production and discovery of evidence. Health librarians have a key role to play in ensuring the integrity of systematic reviews by developing, testing, and validating rigorous search strategies for these reviews. As Cochrane is the world's largest producer of systematic reviews, health information professionals need to stay abreast of the significant changes unfolding there. Steve McDonald, co‐director of the Australasian Cochrane Centre, spoke at the 12th Health Libraries Inc. conference to address the rapidly shifting state of play in the evidence ecosystem.

The aim was to provide a comprehensive picture of the current state of disability research in Australia that would inform and assist decision making about future funded‐research projects and initiatives. Because of the complex nature of processes involved in searching for information for the audit (which was basically a systematic review), the project had budgeted for a librarian to assist them in this. The centre approached the University of Sydney Library to second some hours for a librarian to create search strategies in consultation with the group and run them.

    • Abstract: McDonald, Daniel
      Collaboration occurs in embarking on novel projects, introducing innovative services, and forging new relationships. It also exists in the quotidian activities a library provides to a hospital. The library of Darling Downs Hospital and Health Service sought to capture this activity systematically and code it with hospital‐centric criteria. This context‐sensitive activity was then used to 'map' library‐mediated information across the hospital's variety of departments, services, staff and patients. Such a map is useful for depicting who uses a hospital library and for what. It also generates a shared language that is useful for assessing broader questions on why a hospital library is valuable.

In response to a need detected by clinicians, concerned by the prospect that patients often find inaccurate internet information about their cancer, Macquarie University Library and MCI adapted core service concepts of the Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC) Patient Resource Center (PRC) to create a website that provides filtered information for cancer patients and their families. This collaboration expanded to include additional staff from Macquarie University Library, medical school, MCI and Macquarie University Hospital as well as university educators and psychologists with expertise in cancer and consumer health education. The former WCMC library director was a consultant for this project.

  • 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.

    • 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 - Future requirements for health librarianship workforce
           and education: Outcomes of the health libraries Australia research project
           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 - 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 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.

      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.
