Judy Stanke Retires from U of M

After nearly 27 years of working at the University of Minnesota Bio-Medical Library, Judy Stanke has retired. She states that she has thoroughly enjoyed her 37 year library career -- with stints at the VA Medical Center Library and Hennepin County Medical Center before finding her true home at the University of Minnesota -- and has been particularly fond of working as a reference librarian at Bio-Med. Judy has been the premier literature and systematic review searcher at Bio-Med, with a Cochrane co-authorship to her name and acknowledgements in 30 publications.

Judy is looking forward to spending more time on her hobbies, one of which is travel. As she says "there are too many interesting places in this world to see and not enough time in a lifetime to get to them all," but her goal is to see as many as possible.

Call to Support the Minnesota electronic Health Library (MeHL)

Colleagues,

The legislative session is fast approaching. This means that we need everybody's involvement to support the Minnesota electronic Health Library (MeHL) initiative that is part of the University of Minnesota's 2015 biennial budget request.

MeHL will provide 24/7 online access to a core set of evidence-based, clinical (professional-level) health information resources to ALL Minnesotans. This includes 220,000 licensed health professionals, 35+ health professions schools, 600,000 family caregivers, 5 million citizens, and the librarians who support these groups.

We need your support to make MeHL a reality!

Phone calls, emails, or written letters to your legislators are all great ways to show your support. Every mention of MeHL will help increase awareness illustrate the important role quality health information can play in supporting a healthy Minnesota.

  1. Contact your legislators by January 15, 2015 for greatest impact. We have provided letter templates that can be customized for your use.
  2. Tell us your health information story. Let us know how increased access to evidence-based clinical health information would play an important role in your life. Personal stories will help us convey the need for MeHL to the Legislature.
  3. Share this information with others, and ask them to contact their legislators as well.

For More Information

Thank you for your support of this important issue.

Sincerely,

MeHL Project Team:

Webinar: Supporting a Healthy Minnesota: Introducing the Minnesota Electronic Health Library (MeHL)

Register

Reliable, high-quality health information is costly, resulting in uneven access across our state. This system of unequal access contributes to significant health and health care disparities. To address this problem, the Health Sciences Libraries at the University of Minnesota have developed an initiative called the Minnesota Electronic Health Library, or MeHL for short.

Our vision for MeHL is to support a healthier Minnesota by providing 24/7, online access to evidence-based, clinical care information to people throughout the state: health care providers, particularly in rural areas; students in health-related programs; and citizens who need to make informed decisions about their own care. Join us to learn more:

Supporting a Healthy Minnesota: Introducing the Minnesota Electronic Health Library (MeHL)

Monday, December 15, 2014
2:00 PM-2:45 PM (Central Time)

This presentation will:


  • explore the need for MeHL and the types of resources that it could include;

  • discuss the critical role that public and academic libraries play in connecting people to health information;

  • outline a current legislative request to fund MeHL; and

  • offer ways in which you can actively support it.


With broad support and participation, MeHL will strengthen and improve the overall health of individuals, families, and communities in Minnesota.

The webinar will also provide a brief introduction to tools that can be used to create visualizations to help illustrate research metrics in visually striking and easy-to-understand formats.
