Library Outreach to Administrative Professionals in a Biomedical Research Institution

Title: Library Outreach to Administrative Professionals in a Biomedical Research Institution Objective: Administrative professionals employed by biomedical researchers are charged with a variety of library-related research responsibilities. To increase their knowledge and proficiency in these tasks, the library developed a series of workshops and a resource guide aimed specifically at assisting this population. Methods: Using data from reference tracking software as well as known challenges, workshops and an accompanying guide were designed covering topics including using library resources, citation management software, MyNCBI, calculating h-indexes, and determining article citation counts. The institution employs approximately 90 administrative professionals across clinical and academic research departments. This target audience received emails advertising the sessions. The workshops have been offered annually in recent years due to attendance, participation, and survey feedback. The goals of the initiative are to increase knowledge regarding library resources as well as providing a point of contact within the library for future questions.
