Use Your Expertise to Help Your Community with Their Knowledge Management Needs.
5:15 PM - 5:35 PM
Objective: To help clinical teams with their knowledge management needs, librarians participate on those teams, help capture and preserve the knowledge created, and deploy available technology to help organize it.
Methods: Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital librarians support a number of clinical teams including clinical microsystems, improvement teams, and journal clubs. The librarians fully participate, attending meetings where they contribute ideas, observe the exchange of knowledge, and respond to literature requests. Through this active participation, the librarians became aware that the groups were not effectively capturing the knowledge they were sharing and creating. Often teams would store their documents on the three-hospital system’s shared drive, which had grown increasingly unwieldy, making retrieval difficult. One librarian offered to set up shared work spaces for a number of the teams, using an available technology called microsites. This activity has positioned the librarian for a new role, providing knowledge management services. Other teams have asked for similar assistance. Currently, the librarian is participating in and providing knowledge management services to a system-wide culture of safety planning team.
Results and Conclusions: Through their active participation, the librarians have increased their own knowledge of the teams’ issues and are regarded as essential members of the teams and facilitators of knowledge sharing and capture.

Finding New Ways to Support the Creative Life of an Academic Medical Center: Developing a Nursing Publications Database
5:35 PM - 5:55 PM
Objective: Create a database of published articles, books, book chapters, abstracts from conferences, poster presentations, and grants information from nurses that will display these data in a standardized bibliographic citation format and that will be publicly accessible
Methods: The director of nursing education and research expressed frustration in not being able to accurately account for all of the publishing activities of our hospital’s nurses. I proposed the creation of a nursing publications database modeled on one the Carpenter Library already maintains for faculty publications from the Wake Forest University School of Medicine. Working with our department of information services, we created a data entry template modeled on the faculty publications template but with additional fields for information specifically related to grants funding information and poster presentations. The library offered a staff member to enter and verify the data. Online submittal forms for new submissions were created as well. North Carolina Baptist Hospital now has an accessible database of publications to which nurses can submit any publishing activity they undertake: posters, speeches, journal articles, and funding awards. Nursing administration can run reports at anytime on this activity with the assurance that this information is accurate, complete, and up to date.
Results: The database is accessible at www.wfubmc.edu/Library/Research-and-Publishing/Nursing-Publications.htm.
Conclusions: Find areas where the library can make a difference and create collaborative projects.
