Magnet Hospitals and Increased Opportunities for Librarians
Thursday, April 7, 2016
9:00 pm Eastern/6:00 pm Pacific
Led by Roy Brown @CarolinaFan1982

There are 433 hospitals around the world that are Magnet accredited institutions. The main focus of the model is on evidence-based outcomes based on four major areas that are issues in nursing and health care. Those areas are structural empowerment, exemplary professional practice, new knowledge & innovations and transformational leadership.

Over the last several years, I have become more involved with the nurses in the VCU Health System where I work, mainly because of the hospital adopting the Magnet Model when it comes to nursing practice. Through the course of my work with the nurses in the health system, it has become apparent that the focus on evidence and needing access to the most current literature presents a host of opportunities for librarians.

Discussion Questions: 

1. For those who are affiliated/associated with hospitals that are recognized as Magnet accredited institutions, how have you been able to leverage the needs of nurses into new opportunities? What sort of opportunities?

2. Of the four areas addressed in the Magnet standards, which have you found a role for librarians in addressing?

3. Have you found there to be any barriers in the hospital to working with nurses in order to assist with EBP projects or other needs based on the Magnet model?

4. Are you aware of any other accreditation/models that relate to other disciplines that librarians could leverage to engage more with those disciplines in the hospital?

Led by @PFAnderson

Second of three weeks on the Horizon Report. Last week we talked about immediate attention/action issues. This is the "getting edgy" week. 

Mid-Term Impact Trends: Driving Ed Tech adoption in higher education for three to five years
 > Redesigning Learning Spaces, p.12
 > Shift to Deeper Learning Approaches, p.14

Difficult Challenges: Those that we understand but for which solutions are elusive
 > Competing Models of Education, p.26
 > Personalizing Learning, p.28

Time-to-Adoption Horizon: Two to Three Years
 > Augmented and Virtual Reality, p.40
 > Makerspaces, p.42

Be ready to discuss these topics and possible solutions and uses your institution have implemented with available technologies and other resources you've utilized.

March 24th, when we go to the "far out," will be led by @KR_Barker who will discuss items of interest expected to arise in the next 4-5 years. I hope you'll be able to join us over the next few chats as we dissect The Horizon Report, 2016 Higher Education Edition.

Data Management Chat

Transcript: http://bit.ly/1oTwXP1

Some Implications of Data Management
Thursday, March 3, 2016
9 PM Eastern/6 PM Pacific Time
Led by Patricia Devine (@pat_devine)
Special Guest Betsy Rolland (@betsyrolland)


"The absence of an incentive to share seems about to change. The proposal by the medical editors outlines an approach that would require: a data-sharing policy when the study is started; a commitment to share within six months of publication; and that those who use the data acknowledge those who produced it."

Data Management plans and the idea of data sharing are growing in popularity and by in some cases required by policy. What are some of the social and technology issues around sharing and reusing data? How will the infrastructure be developed? Who will develop the guidance?


Join us and special guest Betsy Rolland, PhD, MLIS, MPH, National Cancer Institute Cancer Prevention Fellow and proponent of team science (betsyrolland.com) to discuss data management from a researcher’s perspective. Currently there is little crossover between the scientific literature community and the social science literature community, yet both groups are implicated in the data sharing future.


Some questions to consider:

  • Who are all the interested parties who should be at the table to discuss the development of data management plans?
  • Where will all the data be kept?
  • Who will pay for the data storage and the time it takes to answer questions?
  • Will each research group have to negotiate data use agreements/authorship?
  • What are some of the challenges of data reuse? Will the original study have the right to refuse the new analyses? What if the new analyses used the data incorrectly? Will participants need to be re-consented?

Education – Past? Present? Future? Chat
Thursday, February 25, 2016
9:00 pm Eastern/6:00 pm Pacific time
Led by Teresa Knott (@tlknott)

There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning. Jiddu Krishnamurti 

We are engaged in a profession and typically work for organizations that are committed to lifelong learning. On Thursday, February 25, #medlibs are gathering on Twitter to talk about education. 

Here are some questions that we may discuss.
  • If you were to enter graduate school today, knowing how you would work today, what courses do you believe graduate schools of library and information science should be teaching now?
  • What do you need to learn now to be more successful in your current position?
  • What do you need to learn now to move into your dream job?
  • What intangible skills or knowledge does it take to be effective as a librarian in your organization?
  • If you supervise, what skills and knowledge do you believe are lacking in new graduates?
  • What do you want to learn now?
  • What are your learning goals and how do you achieve them?

Some articles related to trends in libraries and education.
