ICMJE seeks feedback on sharing clinical trial data

The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) has issued a proposal for “Sharing Clinical Trial Data” and is asking for feedback.

The announcement has appeared in the Annals of Internal Medicine, as well as published in JAMA, Lancet, PLoS Med, NEJM and CMAJ. Harlan Krumholz of Yale shared a commentary on NPR that you may find interesting.

The ICMJE website provides a link to the feedback form, which has specific areas that they want comments on.

Library Space Reconfiguration

The current cubicles will be removed and new computer tables with open seating will be installed allowing for greater collaboration and improved electrical and data connections.

Participants in Leadership Fellows Program Announced

The Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries and the National Library of Medicine are pleased to announce the members of the 2015-2016 class of NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows Program. The jointly sponsored program matches fellows and mentors in a one year leadership development program. Since the program began in 2002, twenty-seven fellow graduates have assumed director positions.

The NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows Program prepares emerging leaders for director positions in academic health sciences libraries. The program provides a combination of in-person and virtual learning experiences for fellows and offers the opportunity to work collaboratively with the cohort of participants. Fellows are paired with mentors who are academic health sciences library directors. Mentors work closely with their fellows throughout the year, and host their fellow’s visit to their library.

The candidate pool for fellows and demand for the program remain strong. Selection is competitive and recognition of a substantial record of leadership accomplishment and potential for a director position. The cohort includes five fellows and their mentors.

MINES for Libraries results

The “Measuring the Impact of Network Electronic Service” (MINES) survey, created by the Association of Research Libraries, was administered at the OHSU Library over a 12-month period during 2013-2014. This survey collected data about the demographics of users and their reasons for using electronic resources purchased and licensed by the OHSU Library. The survey consisted of four questions that were asked each time a randomly selected Library patron accessed a journal article, book, clinical tool, or other electronic resource.

Results

A total of 4,115 responses were collected. Respondents reported using Library resources for coursework and teaching (37%), patient care (28%), research (24), and other purposes (11%). Respondents were faculty (26%), professional students (21%), graduate students (16%), undergraduate students (12%), residents and fellows (9%), other OHSU (3%), and non-OHSU (2%). They reported primary affiliations across the university, including the School of Medicine (42%), School of Nursing (20%), College of Pharmacy (12%), Hospitals and Clinics (10%), research centers or institutes (4%), School of Dentistry (2%), the Portland VA (2%), the Oregon National Primate Research Center (1%), and the remaining respondents from non-OHSU or other affiliations. The Library’s electronic resources are most frequently accessed off-campus (53%).

Conclusion

The primary patrons of the OHSU Library are faculty, students, residents, and fellows, who cite education as the top reason they use electronic books, journals, clinical tools and other resources. However, over half of the reported use of OHSU Library resources is in support of patient care and research. Thus, this report justifies financial support of the OHSU Library by the entire institution.
