Title: A Clearinghouse for Executive Health Sciences Information and Services
Objective: To create an online, searchable clearinghouse of resources and services of interest to the clients of our Health Sciences Executive Research Service (HS-ERS).
Methods: The HS-ERS provides specialized information services to the executive officers and administrators of the university's health system, medical school, schools of dentistry, nursing, and public health, and the college of pharmacy. Clients are often unaware of the valuable services and information sources that are provided by units in the health system and across the campus as a whole. One facet of the information services that we provide includes connecting our clients with these units and their wide array of information and specialized services. To effectively foster these connections, strengthen campus communications, and connect our clientele to the best information resources, the liaison librarians of the HS-ERS needed quick access to a “clearinghouse” of the many units on campus that provide specialized information and services of potential interest. This project involved creating a searchable platform for this clearinghouse, populating it with descriptions of the types of information and services that each unit provides, and identifying additional units to include.
Results: The HS-ERS clearinghouse became a multidisciplinary effort, utilizing the resource and skills of librarians and library staff from the health sciences library, the business administration library, and the art, architecture, and engineering library.
Conclusions: The evolution of the HS-ERS clearinghouse into a multidisciplinary effort allowed it to become a valuable and flexible resource for ourselves, our clients, and our library colleagues.
