3 - Beyond Systematic Reviews: Finding Our Place in the Academic Research Process

Sunday, May 28
3:35 PM - 3:50 PM
Room: 603

Objectives: Are library-based research services addressing the practical needs of faculty? Could librarians be neglecting a range of opportunities in the research process by only focusing on systematic reviews? Two medical librarians at a large, Midwestern institution sought to integrate themselves into the research processes for their respective schools by using a holistic approach towards embedded librarianship in an academic environment.

Methods: Across the research lifecycle, we have created a culture of acceptance for librarians to be included at every step. In the beginning, many faculty members were not aware of how we could help them beyond systematic reviews. As liaisons, we first began by marketing our services to junior faculty by finding relevant grant funding, conducting literature reviews that supported their research projects, and writing the methods sections regarding searches for any articles that resulted from our work. Following the publication of an article, we also helped with any public access compliance needs, worked to archive their manuscripts, and provided them with a metrics assessment for promotion and tenure purposes. We have actively worked towards being included in all aspects of faculty research, and have three years of combined data to endorse our program of embedded research support.
