From the GMR: Update on Value of Libraries Study

Hi everyone,

Renae Barger from the Middle Atlantic Region is offering this update. Ruth


The NN/LM MAR website has been updated with the last of the special reports. 1) for physicians and residents only, 2) nurses only, 3. AAHSL members only, and 4) non-AAHSL members only. Additionally, the full study results are now available and may be helpful to librarians who want to use some slides or data in their own presentations. (http://nnlm.gov/mar/about/valueresults.html)

The JMLA paper is now linking correctly to PMC along with the online only appendices: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3543128/

Here is how the University of Pittsburgh, Health Sciences Library System has highlighted the Value of Libraries study to clinical administrators and users at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC):
