Keynote Speaker

Evidence-Based Librarianship and the Case for Quality Over Quantity

She is wearing glases with heavy dark frames.Professor and MS/IM Program Director, School of Information Sciences, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Librarians have long played a critical role in teams that conduct systematic reviews. They partner with investigators to carefully construct search strategies that ensure all relevant studies are identified. To avoid publication bias, citations are hand searched and some teams even reach out to authors to identify "bottom drawer" literature, where a study has been conducted but not yet published. This example embodies the idea that getting the right data takes work but is critical to reach a valid conclusion. More importantly that easily accessible information can be misleading. This talk will provide a series of examples that illustrate when data quantity is no substitute for quality and how librarians are uniquely positioned within complex data ecosystems to ensure that the same biases that occur when using literature are not recreated or reinforced when researchers shift to re-using data.

Continuing Education

Health Statistics on the Web

1:00 - 3:00 PM Central Time, Wednesday, September 7

2 MLA CE available

Course description:

This two-hour class, developed by the Network of the National Library of Medicine, will explore how to locate and select health statistics online through free, high-quality resources. Through discussion, live demonstrations, and hands-on exercises, participants will learn the importance and relevance of health statistics in various contexts, and learn how to use a four-step search process to locate relevant health statistics. Participants are encouraged to identify a topic they would like to examine prior to class.

Objectives:
At the conclusion of the class, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the differences between data, data sets, and statistics.
  • Understand a four-step search process used to locate relevant health statistics for a particular circumstance or issue.
  • Identify online resources for statistics at the local, state, national, and international level.

Class resources:

NOTE:  This course contains new content on international resources for statistics – so, if you have taken the online version – you will gain new information here! HSLI attendees receive a preview of new content before it is offered nationally at the end of the year!
