Into the User Environment 2022!

Guus van den Brekel

University Medical Center Groningen, Netherlands, The

« Into the User Environment Now!» was the title of my first plenary presentation at an EAHIL conference.

It pictured how -back in 2006- how users and the information landscape changed rapidly, and what we needed to do about it as medical libraries, to keep up the pace, to not loose the connection with the user.

Technologies to embrace, actions to take…

This update pictures where things went right, wrong or very different! And it discusses where we are now in 2022, with a peek into possible futures, from the perspective of a medical library in a Dutch academic hospital, facilitating patient care, education ánd research support.

Researching Ourselves: A Critical Role for Librarians

Melissa L. Rethlefsen

University of New Mexico Health Sciences Library & Informatics Center, United States of America

Conducting research is a critical aspect of our work as librarians, so that we can understand what works, what doesn't, and why. It can also help us demonstrate our value to others outside our profession by providing evidence of how what we do improves health, education, and research outcomes. Starting in research can be a challenge, but it starts with identifying questions that should be answered. Using the story of how I got involved in (and continue to do) research, we'll talk about the process of research and the benefits it can offer to one's career, library, and the profession.

Scientific misconduct in the medical and health sciences and means to avoid it (at least partially)

Jasmin Schmitz

ZB MED - Information Centre for Life Sciences, Germany

Scientific misconduct and good scientific practices/research integrity are two sides of the same coin. Especially in the medical and health sciences misconduct can cause severe damage. Therefore, if errors are spotted publications should be corrected or retracted.

Scientific misconduct can either be performed deliberately or by mistake or rather lack of knowledge.

Besides a general introduction to the topic, the talk will also give an overview on practices and tools that can help to reduce at least such forms of misconduct that happened unintentionally.

Biography and Bibliography
Jasmin Schmitz received a PhD in information science. She worked as a freelance trainer for a commercial provider for scientific information and as scientific project coordinator in the field of bibliometrics. At ZB MED she is responsible for the publication advisory services.
