Program: How does being a research associate affect the role of the medical librarian
Gaelen Adam, Editor/Librarian/Research Associate, Center for Evidence-based Medicine, Brown University School of Public Health
I have been working as a librarian, editor, and research associate at Brown’s Center for Evidence-based Medicine for just over a year. As such, I am involved to a greater or lesser extent in most of the projects undertaken by the center and am rapidly developing a good working knowledge of the methods and tools used in EPC research. I have been an active member of the review teams for many of the EPC projects over the past year. In addition, I co-lead the topic development project “Technical Brief for Environmental Cleaning for the Prevention of Healthcare Acquired Infections” with Dr. Joseph Lau. Our recommendation that the topic be developed into a technical brief was accepted by the AHRQ topic triage committee, and an RFTO has been issued. I will talk about what it is exactly I do on a daily basis, and how that has affected my understanding of evidence-based medicine.
9am Business Meeting

Exploring the New Normal: Trends in Library Services
Thursday, November 13, 2014
5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Cranston Public Library
The Coalition of Library Advocates, the RI Library Association and the Office of Library and Information Services are joining forces to present a forum designed to shine a spotlight on emerging library trends by showcasing innovative projects and initiatives at libraries across the state (maker spaces! learning lounges! metaliteracy!). Designed to expand awareness of what's happening in libraries today with an eye to the future, this event will be of special interest to trustees, friends groups, and library stakeholders, as well as librarians. A dynamic collection of short presentations by speakers from a variety of libraries and demonstrations of projects at libraries will inspire you to think differently about library services in your community. Bring your trustees, your friends, your local officials, and anyone else who is interested in learning more about what the new normal is for libraries!
Sponsored by the Coalition of Library Advocates (COLA) and the Rhode Island Library Association (RILA) in partnership with the Office of Library and Information Services (OLIS). Refreshments will be provided.
Intended Audience: Librarians, library staff, library trustees, and library supporters
