This year in a hosted, but “no holds barred” session, Lively Lunch participants will be invited to hear about and discuss point of care tools in the health information setting. The session will begin with greetings and a short introduction by Nicole Gallo, representing the host sponsors of this lunch, followed by a short annual update on various health sciences scholarly publishing developments by Ramune Kubilius. Then, Susan Klimley will provide a survey of the point of care tools landscape: What are the various types of tools and how do some become more dominant than others? She will discuss marketing techniques, collection, as well as licensing implications that may include or exclude libraries and librarians. Moderator Deborah Blecic will add some discussion points, such as challenges and opportunities that may arise when an integrated team seeks to acquire and provide clinical information tool access. Can an optimal win-win scenario emerge when there are so many parties with differing interests and perspectives? Session participants will be invited to share their experiences and expertise.

My time is spent reviewing download statistics, monitoring Medical Center publishing patterns, trying to make the link resolver work properly and  keeping up with the latest journal pricing plans. My motto: if it doesn't work, fix it.
