Missionaries, measles, and manuscripts: revisiting the Whitman tragedy.

J Med Libr Assoc 2019 Jan 1;107(1):108-113. Epub 2019 Jan 1.

Departments of Neurology and Laboratory Medicine, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT, Professor Emeritus.

The missionaries Marcus Whitman, a doctor, and Narcissa Whitman, his wife, and twelve other members of the Waiilatpu Mission were murdered in November 1847 by a small contingent of the Cayuse Indians in the Oregon Territory. The murders became known as the "Whitman Massacre." The authors examine the historical record, including archived correspondence held at the Yale University Libraries and elsewhere, for evidence of what motivated the killings and demonstrate that there were two valid perspectives, Cayuse and white.

Report from the Medical Library Association's InSight Initiative Summit 1: Engaging Users in a Disruptive Era.

J Med Libr Assoc 2018 Oct 1;106(4):554-572. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

Editor-in-Chief, Journal of the Medical Library Association, and Biomedical Research and Data Specialist, Shiffman Medical Library, Wayne State University, Detroit, MI.

At the Medical Library Association's Insight Initiative Summit 1, held March 6-7, 2018, academic and hospital librarians and publishing industry partners came together to discuss their shared role in engaging users of health sciences information in an era in which "disruptors" such as pirate websites, scientific collaboration networks, and preprint servers pose threats to traditional means of access to scholarly content. Through a mixture of keynote talks, themed panel discussions, and small-group problem-solving exercises, the summit program raised important questions, sparked conversation, and provided insight into the need for both libraries and publishing organizations to improve their user experience, lower their barriers to access, and offer value to users that cannot be provided by competitors, including helping authors and students become informed, responsible advocates for and consumers of scholarly publications. The key takeaways from the summit are expected to impact libraries' and publishers' strategies and stimulate the cocreation of enduring materials to enhance user engagement in disseminating and discovering scientific and medical information.

Reference checking for systematic reviews using Endnote.

Authors:
Wichor M Bramer

J Med Libr Assoc 2018 Oct 1;106(4):542-546. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

Biomedical Information Specialist, Medical Library, Erasmus MC-Erasmus University Medical Centre, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

In searches for systematic reviews, it is recommended that authors review references from the reference lists of retrieved relevant reviews for possible additional, relevant references. This process can be time consuming, since there often is overlap between the reference lists and the lists contain references that were already retrieved in the initial searches. The author proposes a method in which EndNote is used in combination with the Scopus or Web of Science databases to semi-automatically download these references into an existing EndNote library.

A systematic approach to searching: an efficient and complete method to develop literature searches.

J Med Libr Assoc 2018 Oct 1;106(4):531-541. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

Department of Family Medicine, School for Public Health and Primary Care (CAPHRI), Maastricht University, Maastricht, The Netherlands, and Kleijnen Systematic Reviews, York, United Kingdom.

Creating search strategies for systematic reviews, finding the best balance between sensitivity and specificity, and translating search strategies between databases is challenging. Several methods describe standards for systematic search strategies, but a consistent approach for creating an exhaustive search strategy has not yet been fully described in enough detail to be fully replicable. The authors have established a method that describes step by step the process of developing a systematic search strategy as needed in the systematic review. Read More

Updating professional development for medical librarians to improve our evidence-based medicine and information literacy instruction.

Authors:
Joseph Costello

J Med Libr Assoc 2018 Jul 1;106(3):383-386. Epub 2018 Jul 1.

Informationist, Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI.

Medical librarians lack professional development opportunities in the critical appraisal of biomedical evidence. An update to our professional development opportunities could support our efforts to teach critical appraisal of biomedical evidence during evidence-based medicine or information literacy instruction. If we enhance our understanding of latent influences on evidence quality-such as changes to Food and Drug Administration regulations, predatory or deceptive publishing practices, and clinical trial study designs-we can improve our value to medical education and hospital systems.
