lecture / presentation description
The Primary Investigators and Informationist Team were awarded a National Library of Medicine Informationist Award in 2014. The Informationist Team hopes to show that this model, utilizing the skills of multiple librarians, is a viable way to support the increasing number of interdisciplinary and interprofessional research groups at the university who need help from embedded librarians. By working as a group, the Informationist Team is able to help in many new roles.
