- Subject: [InetBib] Postgrad degree in 'Medical Librarianship'? Panel discussion at Bern medical librarians' conference, Sep. 9th
(Apologies for cross-posting)
Medical librarians have developed a large and complex repertoire of methods in
the context of EBM. While some large medical libraries provide extensive
training and mentoring for newcomers to the profession, other colleagues find
it hard to acquire the specialist knowledge they need for their job. So, is
there a need for a postgrad programme in ‘Medical Librarianship’? If so, what
should that include? And how could it be delivered - by distance learning? Or
with some residential modules? The Bern conference will have presentations
around this issue, then enter into a panel discussion which will also allow the
audience to voice their thoughts and ideas. We’ll follow up with an on-line
survey, and a themed issue of the Journal of EAHIL in December.
Other topics of the conference include the Swiss national license to the
Cochrane Library, systematic searching, and new developments in Open Science.
There is also a small exhibition with stalls of the major publishers.
The conference takes place at Bern university on Sep. 9th. For details and to
register, please see http://www.samw.ch/de/Aktuell/Agenda.html?p=00. There is
no registration fee; coffee/tea and lunch are provided.
