For those of you that may have been in attendance at DEM2012; Elaine
Alligood (Boston VA Informationista) made a comment from the floor that the
skills of librarians should be considered more broadly as members of DxError
reduction (and other) research teams. 


This free article makes some good points to underscore Elaine's comments and
highlight a role for librarians that may be new to some of you:

Informationist on a Clinical Research Team." Journal of eScience
Librarianship 2(1): Article 6.
