Many of us are doing wonderful work in expanding our presence in the hospital, medical schools and communities.  During the second paper session on Wednesday, October 29, Moonlight E there were a number of idea generating papers presented.  I am presenting my notes on three.

     - Clinical scenarios are developed based on the clinical areas of need and assigned to small groups of students.
     - Student groups create the PICO, do the search of the litearture, appraise findings and present to the hospital quality improvement.
     - Librarian oversees all aspects to ensure quality work, by meeting with student groups, monitoring RefWorks account, etc.
