[InetBib] Postgrad degree in 'Medical Librarianship'? Panel discussion at Bern medical librarians' conference, Sep. 9th

Dear Colleagues

(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.
