Richard McGowan, Research Librarian, and Jamie Graham, Emerging Technologies Librarian, hosted a half-day continuing education course for the New York–New Jersey Chapter of the Medical Library Association on September 20.
The course, entitled "Communicating with Physicians: For Librarians," was designed to help librarians understand the viewpoint of physicians during library transactions. Led by Bradley Long of SUNY Upstate Medical University and Dr. Peter Jucovy of the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center, the course explored how to work with a variety of patrons by understanding their diverse information needs and communication styles.
The course was attended by librarians from Weill Cornell Medical College, Beth Israel Medical Center, Staten Island University Hospital, and NYU Langone Medical Center. NYUHSL looks forward to providing more educational opportunities for librarians in the future.
