Subject: Informationists: a role on DxError research teams
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:
