Traditionally, medical and science/technical libraries have provided information resources and technology to support educational and research objectives. Now, the complexity of translational and team-based science research and their multidisciplinary approaches offer prime opportunities for many different types of libraries to create visionary library-based translational and team-based science programs.
This workshop will provide medical and science/technical librarians with an initial foundation to develop and/or supplement translational and team-based science programs for their institutions. Topics to be discussed include an introduction to the concepts of translational and team-based science and to Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSAs), discussion of stakeholders for advancing translational science efforts, strategies for initiating collaborations with stakeholders, and a review of possible services and resources that can be implemented to establish a library-based support program for translational or team-based science.
