Health Sciences Librarian accepted to prestigious training program

Congratulations to NDSU Health Sciences Librarian, Merete Christianson, for being selected to participate in the Institutie for Research Design in Librarianship (IDRL) training workshop. The program is designed to "bring together a diverse group of academic and research librarians who are motivated and enthusiastic about conducting research but need additional training and/or other support to perform the steps successfully"(IRDLonline.org). Academic librarians conducting research provides many benefits to an institution, however there are often barriers. IDRL aims to "to remove some of the noted barriers (reported lack of time to complete a research project, unfamiliarity with the research process, lack of support for research (both moral and monetary), lack of confidence, discouraging jargon, inadequate education in research methods)" (IDRLonline.org). The program provides ongoing support to participants in conducting their research and preparing the results for dissemination. 

Below is the abstract of Merete's research proposal:
One of the developing challenges facing librarianship is misinformation, a problem encapsulated by the idea that we are living in a "post-truth" era. This research proposal investigates one area in which claims are not always backed by scientific fact—complementary and alternative medicine (CAM)—and how health sciences librarians address the ethical dilemma between providing evidence-based information resources and providing a wider variety of information resources no matter their accuracy. Through a survey of health sciences librarians working in a variety of academic and health institutions, this research will measure librarians' current knowledge of CAM, their institutions’ practices surrounding CAM, what CAM materials they do and do not include in their collections, and what their priorities are when making collection development decisions. Information gained through this survey will help librarians who are unfamiliar with CAM make collection development decisions on this topic, as well as determine current professional awareness of CAM, misinformation and ethics.
