May 2022 Meeting Agenda

Updated: Nov 15

We are so looking forward to seeing you at the May meeting of the Hospital Librarians’ CoP next Thursday, the 5th of May, from 2:30pm – 3:30pm (AEST).


We have put together an agenda based on some of your suggestions and topics that we feel would benefit early and mid-career hospital librarians. We look forward to a robust discussion in the Open Discussion, PD Corner and Brains Trust segments.

Enjoy the rest of your week and we’ll see you next Thursday!

**Note: If you no longer wish to receive emails regarding the Hospital Librarians’ CoP, please let us know.

Agenda

  • Housekeeping

  • Online forum

  • Terms of Reference/ Code of Conduct (a draft will be emailed prior to the meetup)


  • Open Discussion

  • Hospital librarians supporting health professional students

“So, a student walks into a library and asks…can you help me with my assignment?

  • How do you deal with these requests from students?

  • How much help is too much?

  • Does it make a difference if it is a hospital clinician undertaking study?

Share your experiences and advice on student support in hospital libraries.


  • Ask the brains trust

  • …that’s you!

This month’s topic: What is your absolute ‘go to’ hospital librarianship resource? The one you can’t live without!

  • There are a lot of resources out there, but which one do you use regularly or find invaluable?

  • Podcasts, mailing lists, blogs, social media, or something else?

Be ready to argue the case for your favourite resource and take away some great new ideas.


  • PD Corner

Systematic Reviews: How confident are we?

This month’s focus is on our level confidence when it comes to advising and/or performing searches for systematic reviews:

  • What level of involvement do you have in SR?

  • Are you expected to work individually on SR or part of a team?

  • Do you feel you receive enough training?

  • Any training/ PD recommendations?
