« 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.

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