Highlights from 2016

  • Library servers were migrated to the Montefiore computer network with bumps along the way.  Unexpected technical difficulties proved challenging for library staff and our stalwart library users.  Montefiore/Einstein Migration, Network and Research Computing team members helped resolve a number of these issues as they occurred and are continuing to work with us to resolve residual infelicities. Your patience and understanding during this transition are much appreciated.
  • Library’s 3D printer is in constant use to print scientific, medical, educational and casual/fun models.  A librarian worked with a student to design and print a model that was used in a surgical procedure.
  • Librarians actively participate in systematic reviews, conducting literature searches and assisting with the publication process with authorship credit. 
  • Librarians  work with researchers and administrators to ensure that their publications are in compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy.
  • A technology award from the New York Metropolitan Library Council (METRO) funded the purchase of a phone/device Charging Station and Locker.
  • To comply with LCME 6.3 Self Directed and Lifelong Learning Standard, librarians created modules and tutorials for first and second-year medical students.  Sessions for MSI focus on developing fundamental search skills and MSII focus on performing searches for evidence-based literature. Sessions were conducted in a flipped classroom. Librarians developed interactive, multi-media web-based tutorials with embedded quizzes to test and evaluate knowledge acquired by the students. This was followed by live in-classroom small-group sessions for students to demonstrate new knowledge and skills with feedback from peers and facilitators.
  • Librarians conducted webinars for popular classes such as EndNote, NIH Public Access Compliance as well as on demand for specific resources at a time convenient for the particular group/individual requesting it.

Intentions for 2017

  • Improving the speed and efficiency of online printing.
  • Developing new partnerships and collaborations with researchers.
  • Exploring new services and developing expertise to further your work.
  • Implementing innovative technologies to enhance services, resources and more.
  • Increase e-book,  e-journal collections and  variety of databases

Please share your thoughts, ideas and suggestions to help us implement services and resources to meet your needs!
