Title: Bringing the Library to the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA): An Online Community for Library-based Translational Science Initiatives
Objective: To advance the role of library and information science professionals in Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA)-related initiatives through the creation of a robust, freely available online community for interaction.
Methods: Librarians at institutions with CTSA awards communicate and network via email discussion lists or leverage affiliations in medical and hospital librarian-oriented associations, often at the exclusion of other library or information science professionals. Developing an online community to support access to and use of the research knowledgebase created from CTSA programs will involve the following:
1. perform an environmental scan of CTSA and related communications channels for librarians and information professionals (IPs) to gain knowledge of existing resources and identify gaps;
2. identify known CTSA IPs and conduct informal interviews to garner appropriate questions for a web-based survey exploring platform selection;
3. compile a list of known platforms and their features, create and conduct a survey, and determine criteria for rating platforms;
4. solicit input from CTSA IPs to discuss future goals; and

5. create, promote, and evaluate use of online community.
Results and Conclusions: My results and conclusions are not complete yet.
