Featured in this session:
Laurie Blanchard is the librarian at the Sister St Odilon Library at Misericordia Health Centre. The underlying theme of her research to-date is evaluation.
Laurie will speak about her recent research project evaluating the Music and Memory (TM) Program at Misericordia Health Centre, reflecting on the benefits and challenges of undertaking collaborative research in a clinical setting.

Lisa Demczuk is the librarian for the College of Nursing at the University of Manitoba and a reference librarian at UM’s Elizabeth Dafoe Library since March 2013. Prior to this position, Lisa was a hospital librarian as part of the UM Health Sciences Libraries.
Engaging in research is an exciting, yet sometimes daunting, avenue for librarians. This presentation will share some tips, traps, and lessons learned from one librarian’s personal experience of a research project undertaken during a study leave.

Orvie Dingwall is the Head of Outreach Services at the University of Manitoba Health Sciences Library, a Distinguished Member of AHIP, and a Past President of the Canadian Health Libraries Association.
Orvie will share the tips and tricks she learned while on a six-month research leave examining Canadian Academic Health Sciences Libraries and their Relationships with Health Care Practitioners.

We look forward to sharing with you and generating some discussion around practicing research as health information providers.

See you on January 20th!
