VT Medical Libraries: Partner for Health at Blueprint Conference

vt-blueprint-for-health-conf-002new“What are your unmet health information needs?” librarian exhibitors asked at the Vermont Blueprint for Health Conference, on March 9 at the Sheraton Burlington Hotel and Conference Center. Public health professionals among others wanted to know how they could obtain full-text journal articles if they are not affiliated with UVM. The Dana Medical Library exhibit, presented in cooperation with the National Network of Libraries of Medicine-New England Region, provided answers that highlighted the Library’s Health Research Affiliates Program, and the services of eight hospital libraries throughout Vermont. Free resources such as Medlineplus.gov and the Vermont Go Local health services referral database were also featured. Marianne Burke, MLS, UVM Dana Library, and Claire LaForce, MLS, UVM and Rutland Regional Medical Center, were the exhibitors.

Journal Changes for 2009

medphoto_dsc1135_uncroppedEvery year Library faculty and staff work hard to assess the journal collection to make sure it meets the needs of patrons. Indicators such as journal usage statistics, impact factors, and ranking of a journal title within its subject area assist the Library in deciding which journal titles to add, change to online subscription, or, in some cases, cancel. The attached document lists all changes in the journal collection for 2009.
