Description: The proliferation of electronic resources (informatics tools) has afforded librarians the opportunity to break through the “four walls” of the physical library and engage with users at the point of need. Whether they are connecting virtually with users at remote locations, partnering with health care professionals and students at the point of care, working in the field with the public health workforce, or delving into the lab with bench scientists, librarians are using their informatics skills in new and creative ways. Areas of exploration run the gamut from health information technology (HIT), including patient portals and electronic medical record (EMR) implementation, to big data initiatives.
