Librarians in Print at the Strauss Health Sciences Library

Congratulations to Education & Reference Librarians Ben Harnke, Kristen DeSanto, Christi Piper, Nina McHale, and Lilian Hoffecker, who just published a featured article in Doody’s Core Titles about the recent changes to the department’s professional literature search service. The article, “Developing a Database for a Literature Search Service at an Academic Health Sciences Library,” details the process taken to revise and improve the organization of the Strauss Health Sciences Library’s search service for systematic reviews, grant proposals, book chapters, and other large publication projects.

Furthermore, DeSanto had an additional publication selected as a featured article with DCT on her role as a Clinical Librarian assisting inpatient teams in clinical rounding. In “Answering Questions at the Point of Care,” she provides an overview of her role as a librarian during clinical rounds, including the professional knowledge she brings to the role and the technologies and resources she uses the most in this unique setting.

Check out both of these articles in the links above, and join us in congratulating their hard work!
