DAHSL: Developing Academic Health Sciences Libraries


a collaboration to create the 21st century academic health sciences library…

AAHSL/AAMC afforded NLG time to gather and learn

Several group members* met to learn from colleagues during this really wonderful conference in Denver!  The Saturday workshop (What’s Happening Really: Digital Research Support, and other Hot Topics) was excellent, and I  look forward to reading the handouts and PPTs once they are posted to the AAHSL website.  Other highlights for me included:

  • AAHSL Teaching and Learning Committee
  • The reception at the  University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus Health Science Library
  • Advancing the Digital Research Enterprise
  • Academic Medicine Question of the Year
  • AAMC Leadership Plenary
  • The Chicago Collaborative/Scholarly Communications briefing
  • The AAMC Town Hall
  • Developing an Informatics Program to Meet Market Need
  • Two Demos of INKLING
  • The AAHSL/GIR Reception and Awards Ceremony
  • GEA/GSA Small Group Discussion: The iPad Initiative: Lessons Learned from Introducing Digital Tablet-Based Learning to the MD Curriculum (at Stanford)
  • What We’ve Learned (so far) from the New and Developing Schools Consortium
  • The bi-annual gathering of this group, including an update from Pat Thibodeau, AAHSL President and Board Liaison to the new New Academic Health Sciences Task Force.  As a result of this meeting two groups are in place; this group has evolved into DAHSL (pronounced “dazzle”). The current list of DAHSL members is here. Also created was an official AAHSL Task Force to support New Academic Health Science Libraries (the NAHSLTF).  Members of this group are Pat Thibodeau, Board Liaison, Jacque Doyle, Nadine Dexter, Deborah Rand, David Boilard, and Barbara Shearer.
More info and photos to follow.  It was a fascinating and exhausting week, and Denver was lovely!
*Janice Swiatek-Kelley, Barbara Miller, Debra Rand, Dave Boilard, Nadine Dexter, Joanne Muellenbach, Nancy Bulgarelli, Nancy Calabretta, and me.  Barbara Shearer participated via phone.
