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!

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
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.
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?
