We're back for another go-round. The crackerjack team of Victoria and Alonzo are back. In this 20 minute podcast Victoria, one of our Clinical Informationists, and Alonzo tackle a few more pertinent issues of the day. Here's the timeline breakdown:


1) 1:00-5:00 minutes, Victoria speaks about the "average" daily duties and responsibilities she experiences----including the basics behind how she constructs search strategies & presentations. Most especially, she presents the ways she helps patrons avoid the 'kitchen sink" searching method, winding up with loads of citations and information they DON'T need.

 

2) At 5:00, I ask Victoria how she's gauged the mood and tone around campus surrounding the upcoming library changes.

 

3) 6:50, I asked Victoria what she felt were the most important needs of our medical community. What do they need most from a library resource.

 

4) 11:50 we address the foothold that Integrative Medicine has taken with medical institutions. The article that I mention is from the Atlantic and it addresses the success of Dr. Brian Berman and his Center with the University of Maryland. In our monthly newsletter I  posted an article that cited Dr. Berman ("the growth of quackademic medicine....")

 

5) 16:45, final thoughts the New Clinical Building Expo (lots of Hopkins organizations convened down in the Turner concourse) regarding the comments we received. Victoria and I shared an information table, but I wanted her take on the feedback people gave us about the Welch changes.

 

All those goodies are only a CLICK AWAY!

Catch our next December episode. Victoria will be my guest once again, and we'll see what's new on the educational, science and technology horizon.

 

 

Questions or Commments? Let me know if there's something you'd like us to cover, something you think deserves a little airplay. We'll do our best.
