Perceptions of Health Sciences Librarians in Liaison Roles on the Acquisition of Discipline Specific Knowledge
Irene "Rena" Lubker, MLS, MPH, RD, AHIP
Research & Education Informationist
MUSC Libraries
Medical University of South Carolina
This is a brief report of a qualitative study of health sciences liaison librarians geared towards understanding how they learn the content in their schools. The overarching research question I sought to answer was, "How do health science liaison librarians acquire knowledge and expertise in their content field?" The study also answers three sub questions: (1) What factors are helpful in learning the concepts and how to communicate effectively with the different professionals in their assigned schools; (2) How does a librarian’s undergraduate education, professional development and other previous training help in the acquisition of knowledge; and (3) How does the environment in the schools or their relationships with the professionals in their schools influence their knowledge acquisition and expertise?...

"I use Doody's Core Titles throughout the year to update our collection. Once the new list is available, the Essential [Purchase] titles are reviewed. Those books that relate to our library are purchased right away.  When our patrons suggest titles…I check to see if it has an expert review and/or Doody's score before I make my decision. Prior to weeding a title that seems old I check to see if it is still current by looking on the Doody's Core Titles. To fill gaps in our collection it is easy to find a title to add by looking at New This Month or the Titles By Specialty. Needless to say, Doody's Core Titles is our main collection development tool.
