 1. How to undertake a literature search: enhancing your search.
   Key J
  This article follows on from a previous article on how to carry out a 
  literature search (Watson, 2020) and looks at how you can enhance your 
  search by going beyond journal databases to using search engines, websites 
  and grey literature sources. Ways to evaluate the resources you find, the 
  use of critical appraisal tools and factors to consider when presenting your 
  results are also discussed.

 2. A High Recall Classifier for Selecting Articles for MEDLINE Indexing.
   Rae AR, Savery ME, Mork JG, Demner-Fushman D
  MEDLINE is the National Library of Medicine's premier bibliographic database 
  for biomedical literature. A highly valuable feature of the database is that 
  each record is manually indexed with a controlled vocabulary called MeSH. 
  Most MEDLINE journals are indexed cover-to-cover, but there are about 200 
  selectively indexed journals for which only articles related to biomedicine 
  and life sciences are indexed. In recent years, the selection process has 
  become an increasing burden for indexing staff, and this paper presents a 
  machine learning based system that offers very significant time savings by 
  semi-automating the task. At the core of the system is a high recall 
  classifier for the identification of journal articles that are in-scope for 
  MEDLINE. The system is shown to reduce the number of articles requiring 
  manual review by 54%, equivalent to approximately 40,000 articles per year.

 3. Checking in with Your Document Delivery User Base: Creating, 
     Implementing, and Learning from Client Satisfaction Surveys.
   Larsen SC, Gibson DS
  In 2017, Document Delivery Services (DDS) at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer 
  Center Medical Library launched a customer satisfaction survey. The last 
  time a survey of this nature was implemented was in 2009, before switching 
  to ILLiad for the management of resource sharing requests. Due to the 
  changing nature of content accessibility and online research methods, the 
  DDS team felt that the time was right to survey their users again to seek 
  feedback in support of service improvements. Questions were created to 
  evaluate users' satisfaction and knowledge of the service and related 
  resources. New survey results were compared where possible to those received 
  in 2009 to determine if survey results had changed over time. Enhancements 
  were made to the service based on responses received in the 2017 survey.

 4. Shaping a Future for Library and CME through Partnerships.
   Glover S, Reagan J
  The purpose of this article is to highlight the value of a partnership 
  between library services and continuing medical education (CME) teams. 
  Examples of a successful partnership between library services and CME within 
  a health system will be shown. Through team collaboration, library and CME 
  services provide quick access to educational resources and activities which 
  benefit the delivery of optimal health care.

 5. More to offer than books: stakeholder perceptions of a public 
     library-based meal programme.
   De La Cruz MM, Phan K, Bruce JS
  OBJECTIVE: To examine the perspectives of librarians and staff about Lunch 
  at the Library, a library-based summer meal programme for children. The 
  study examines: (i) motivating factors behind implementing the meal 
  programme; (ii) issues of feasibility; and (iii) perceived programme 
  outcomes.
   DESIGN: One-on-one semi-structured interviews with library stakeholders 
  (librarians and staff) from a purposeful sample of California libraries.
   SETTING: Twenty-two library jurisdictions across California that implemented 
  the Lunch at the Library summer meal programme in 2015 in areas of high 
  financial need.
   PARTICIPANTS: Twenty-five library stakeholders representing twenty-two of 
  the thirty-three Californian library jurisdictions that implemented Lunch at 
  the Library at their sites.
   RESULTS: Library stakeholders recognised the need for a child meal programme 
  during summer. Despite lack of sufficient resources and personnel, they were 
  motivated to implement the programme not only to fill a community need but 
  also to ensure children at their libraries were primed for learning over the 
  summer. Library stakeholders also perceived the public library's changing 
  role in society as shifting from reference provision to social service 
  provision either directly or by referral.
   CONCLUSIONS: The public library is an ideal place to provide social services 
  because of its accessibility to all. Librarians and library staff are 
  motivated to address the social needs of their communities. This study 
  demonstrates the feasibility of implementing new social programmes at public 
  libraries. Funding to support these programmes would increase the library's 
  capacity to address other community needs.

 6. Extending Our Reach: Integrating Librarians and Library Resources into 
     Canvas.
   Auten B, Croxton R, Tingelstad C
  A team of librarians developed and implemented a plan to create coordinated 
  library access for all students through the Canvas learning management 
  system. Partnering with campus information technology services, librarians 
  developed a specialized role in Canvas. Librarians also used Springshare's 
  LibApps LTI (learning tools interoperability) to integrate research guides 
  in Canvas, using course metadata to map guides to the appropriate subject or 
  course. Evaluation of the impact of adding a Librarian role and mapping 
  research guides to the Canvas LMS is ongoing and indicates these changes 
  have affected the way students are accessing library resources.

 7. MedGen: NCBI's Portal to Information on Medical Conditions with a 
     Genetic Component.
   Louden DN
  MedGen serves as a portal to information on genetic aspects of human health 
  and disease. Created and maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology 
  Information (NCBI), it aggregates clinically-relevant content from both NCBI 
  and non-NCBI databases. MedGen summaries and curated links are designed to 
  be particularly useful to health care professionals considering genetic 
  aspects of patient care.

 8. The educational role of clinical informationist on improving clinical 
     education among medical students: Based on Kirkpatrick model.
   Tahmasebi M, Adibi P, Zare-Farashbandi F, Papi A, Rahimi A
  INTRODUCTION: Due to time constraints and a significant increase in medical 
  information, one of the ways to keep physicians and medical teams up to date 
  is to use evidence-based medicine. The current research focused on the 
  effects of the educational role of clinical informationist (CI) on improving 
  clinical education among medical students based on the Kirkpatrick (KP) 
  model.
   METHODS: The method was semiexperimental research in two group designed with 
  pretest and posttest. The research population included thirty medical 
  students for each group that was selected by the convenience time-based 
  sequential sampling method. The study data were collected using a 
  researcher-made two questionnaires and a checklist. Data were analyzed by 
  the descriptive statistics and inferential statistics using SPSS version 20 
  software.
   RESULTS: Based on the first level of the KP model, the total mean of medical 
  students' satisfaction in the experimental group was 4.06 from 5. Based on 
  the second, third, and fourth levels of the model, the independent t-test 
  showed that before the intervention, the mean scores of attitude, knowledge, 
  information-seeking skills and behaviors, and also clinical skills were not 
  significantly different in both the intervention and control groups (P > 
  0.05). After the intervention, the results of covariance test showed that 
  attitude, knowledge, information-seeking skills and behaviors, and also 
  clinical skills of the intervention group are significantly better than that 
  of the control group (P < 0.001).
   CONCLUSION: Training and the presence of the CIs in the clinical round had 
  resulted in the improved satisfaction, attitude, knowledge, and 
  information-seeking skills while also improving information-seeking 
  behaviors and clinical skills of medical students.

 9. Digital Accommodations for Students Living with Print Disabilities: A 
     Literature Review.
   Lorbeer ER
  There is a growing base of literature describing the importance of improving 
  access to digital and physical academic resources for students with print 
  disabilities. This review aims to explore the experience of medical learners 
  who are print disabled as it relates to improving access to digital and 
  physical resources and removing encountered barriers in the medical library. 
  By applying both the critical disability and self-efficacy theories to 
  persons with print disabilities, librarians can understand learner behavior 
  surrounding motivation, determination, and perceived challenges in using 
  library resources and services.

10. Graduate Occupational Therapy Students: Communication and Research 
     Preferences from Three University Libraries.
   Adriani LA, Kipnis DG, Kolbin RI, Verbit D
  Library liaisons from three universities distributed an anonymous survey to 
  graduate occupational therapy students to gauge preferred methods of 
  communication when conducting research. This article discusses three 
  findings: whom the students prefer to turn to when seeking research 
  assistance, which methods of communication students prefer, and how long 
  students spend searching before asking for assistance. From 193 responses, 
  the liaisons reasoned that students prefer consulting with their peers 
  before seeking help from librarians or faculty or instructors and they 
  prefer assistance face-to-face. Additionally, the majority are willing to 
  research from 30 min to one hour before seeking research help.

11. Information Overload: A Method to Share Updates among Frontline Staff 
     during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
   Poonia SK, Rajasekaran K
  Since COVID-19 was classified as a pandemic, the stream of important 
  information from multiple sources is constant and always changing. As the 
  pandemic evolves, the need to report relevant information to frontline 
  providers remains crucial. A 1-page centralized document termed a 
  "quicksheet" was developed to include guidelines, policies, and practical 
  information and to serve as a reference tool for our clinicians. It was 
  updated and distributed frequently, up to once daily. It was initially 
  embraced as an important resource for resident physicians and then quickly 
  adopted by the entire department as a necessary reference and communication 
  tool during the ongoing crisis. The quicksheet has been a beneficial tool to 
  distill and organize the most important and relevant information for 
  frontline staff, and we hope that it can serve as a template for departments 
  and health care workers in other hospital systems to adopt.

12. Dr. Google Will See You Now: Google's Health Information Previews and 
     Implications for Consumer Health.
   Scull A
  The aim of this exploratory study was to identify the sources of information 
  provided in Google preview features, specifically the knowledge panels and 
  featured snippets, when searching for health information online, with the 
  goal of informing the development of consumer health programs and materials. 
  In a search of the top ten health-related Google searches of 2018, the 
  quality of information sources in the preview content varied both within and 
  between sources. Librarians' knowledge of how a Google search responds to 
  health inquiries of local interest can help them fill in gaps and curate or 
  create more informative health materials for consumers.

13. Informatics Instruction: An Informal Needs Assessment Survey.
   Pepper C
  Instruction is a competency included in the Medical Library Association's 
  list of professional competencies for health sciences librarians, and is 
  often included in many job requirements in this field. However, few 
  opportunities for formal training are available, leaving most librarians to 
  learn how to teach effectively on the job. This column examines some of the 
  literature surrounding pedagogy for medical informatics librarians and 
  invites readers to identify their needs for training as instruction 
  librarians via an informal survey.

14. Examining the Reach and Impact of a Systematic Review Service.
   Healy HS, Regan M, Deberg J
  This case study describes the process librarians at a large research 
  university used to evaluate a systematic review searching service. PubMed, 
  Embase, CINAHL, and Scopus were searched for studies with a local, health 
  sciences author. Data on librarian involvement, search quality, and 
  standards adherence were recorded. Results of the assessment indicate a 
  gradual increase in librarian authorship or acknowledgement over time, a 
  moderate improvement in adherence to reporting standards over time, and 
  insight into which departments better adhere to standards. Ideas for 
  improving the quality and reach of the service while ensuring sustainability 
  are discussed.

15. Readability and quality of online information regarding dental 
     treatment for patients with ischaemic heart disease.
   Leung JY, Ni Riordain R, Porter S
  Background Healthcare information is increasingly being sought on the 
  Internet. Ischaemic heart disease (IHD) poses a significant health burden. 
  Concern often arises for patients with IHD when undergoing dental treatment, 
  leading to online searching for relevant healthcare information.Objective To 
  evaluate the readability and quality of webpages regarding IHD and dental 
  treatment.Materials and methods Three searches were performed on the Google 
  search engine. The first hundred results of each search were collated and 
  exclusion criteria applied. The remaining 66 webpages were categorised. 
  Readability was assessed using the FRES and SMOG readability tools. Quality 
  was assessed using the PEMAT questionnaire, the JAMA benchmarks and the 
  Health On the Net (HON) seal.Results Most examined webpages were commercial. 
  Readability of 90.1% of webpages was deemed fairly to very difficult. 
  Understandability and actionability scores were generally below the 
  comprehension level of the general population. Less than 50% of websites 
  achieved the authorship, attribution and disclosure JAMA benchmarks. Only 
  12.1% of websites displayed the HON seal.Conclusions Online health 
  information related to IHD and dental treatment is generally too difficult 
  for the average individual to read, understand, or act upon, and may be of 
  questionable quality. Given the low health literacy rates among the general 
  population, future revisions of educational materials by non-commercial 
  sources regarding IHD and dental treatment are warranted, in order to ensure 
  online health information is understandable and of genuine benefit to 
  patients and/or their carers.

16. Quality and readability of English-language internet information for 
     vestibular disorders.
   Felipe L, Beukes EW, Fox BA, Manchaiah V
  BACKGROUND: The Internet has become a powerful, accessible resource for many 
  patients to use for their own medical management and knowledge. Vestibular 
  disorders affect all genders and ages with the odds increasing significantly 
  with the years. As the Internet is increasingly a major source of 
  health-related information to the general public, it is often used to search 
  for information regarding dizziness and vertigo. Ensuring that the 
  information is accessible, unbiased and appropriate can aid informed 
  decision-making.
   OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the quality and readability of English-language 
  Internet information related to vestibular disorders.
   METHODS: A cross-sectional website search using three keywords (nausea, 
  dizziness, and vertigo) in five country-specific versions of the most 
  commonly used Internet search engine was conducted in March 2018. The 
  language was limited to English for all websites. Quality was assessed by 
  presence of Health on the Net (HON) certification and DISCERN scores. 
  Readability was assessed using the Flesch Reading Ease (FRE) score, 
  Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level Formula (F-KGL), and Simple Measure of 
  Gobbledygook (SMOG).
   RESULTS: In total, 112 websites were included and analyzed. The majority was 
  of commercial (61%) websites. A total of 42% had obtained HON certification. 
  No association was found between the presence of HON certification and 
  source of the website. The DISCERN scores had a mean of 2.52 (SD 1.1). 
  Readability measures indicated that an average of 14-18 years of education 
  was required to read and understand the Internet information provided 
  regarding vestibular disorders.
   CONCLUSIONS: To ensure the accessible to the general population, it is 
  necessary to improve the quality and readability of Internet-based 
  information regarding vestibular disorders.

  BACKGROUND: In recent years, YouTube has become a recognized source of 
  medical information for health care consumers. Although YouTube has 
  advantages in this context, there are potential dangers as videos may 
  contain nonscientific, misleading, or even harmful information.
   OBJECTIVE: As little is known about YouTube as a source of information on 
  atopic dermatitis (AD), we investigated the content-related quality of AD 
  videos and their perception among YouTube users.
   METHODS: The quality of the 100 most viewed AD videos was assessed by using 
  the Global Quality Scale (GQS) and the DISCERN instrument. Videos were 
  classified as "useful," "misleading," and "potentially harmful," and the 
  correlations of viewers' ratings (likes) with the GQS and DISCERN scores 
  were assessed.
   RESULTS: Among the 100 videos, 68.0% (68/100) and 62.0% (62/100) were of 
  poor and very poor scientific quality, respectively. Additionally, 32.0% 
  (32/100) of the videos were classified as useful, 48.0% (48/100) were 
  classified as misleading, and 34.0% (34/100) were classified as potentially 
  harmful. Viewers' ratings did not correlate with the GQS and DISCERN scores. 
  Overall, 50.0% (50/100) of the videos were posted by private individuals and 
  promoters of complementary/alternative treatments, 42.0% (42/100) by 
  therapeutical advertisers, and only 8.0% (8/100) by nonprofit 
  organizations/universities.
   CONCLUSIONS: Our study demonstrated that two-thirds of the videos analyzed 
  were below acceptable medical quality standards and that many videos were 
  disseminating misleading or even dangerous content. Subjective and anecdotal 
  content was overrepresented, and viewers did not appear to be able to 
  distinguish between high- and low-quality videos. Health promotion 
  strategies by professional medical organizations are needed to improve their 
  presence and visibility on YouTube.

  BACKGROUND: Medical residents can offer ideas for new information services, 
  as most of them are 'digital natives', although reviews of the use of social 
  media in health care settings do not provide data on their information 
  behaviour.
   OBJECTIVE: A scoping review aimed at providing a research map for the 
  information behaviour of medical residents and their use of social media, 
  listing the aspects of the information behaviour studied and the theories 
  and methods used.
   METHODS: A search was carried out in pubmed, embase, cinahl and lisa in 
  April of 2018, with the results limited to the period from 2010 onwards.
   RESULTS: Thirty-nine relevant articles from 38 different studies were 
  identified. The presence and use of social media was the most researched 
  aspect, followed by information sharing, the relationships established and, 
  finally, the search for and use of information. These aspects are researched 
  mainly from the point of view of doctor-patient interactions. Only one study 
  incorporated a theory of its design. Surveys were the most frequently used 
  method.
   CONCLUSION: Research does not delve into medical residents' information 
  behaviour on social media, despite the residents themselves using these 
  media (in the context of everyday life, at least). More research is required.

19. Quality of consumer-oriented websites containing information about 
     the second trimester ultrasound examination during pregnancy.
   Georgsson S, Carlsson T
  BACKGROUND: Providing information about prenatal tests is a clinical 
  challenge and the public frequently accesses the Web to read 
  pregnancy-related information. The overarching aim of this study was to 
  investigate the quality of consumer-oriented websites addressing obstetric 
  ultrasound examination in the second trimester of pregnancy.
   METHODS: Swedish websites were identified with Google, using 20 search 
  strings and screening 400 hits (n = 71 included websites). Reliability and 
  information about the examination were assessed with the DISCERN instrument, 
  completeness was assessed according to national guidelines, and readability 
  analyzed with the Readability Index. Popularity was determined with the 
  ALEXA tool and search rank was determined according to Google hit lists.
   RESULTS: The mean total DISCERN score was 29.7/80 (SD 11.4), with > 50% 
  having low quality for 15 of the 16 questions. The mean completeness score 
  was 6.8/24 (SD 4.5). The Readability Index ranged between 22 and 63, with a 
  mean of 42.7 (SD 6.8), indicating difficult readability. Weak and 
  non-significant correlations were observed between ALEXA/search rank and the 
  investigated quality variables, except for search rank and reliability.
   CONCLUSIONS: The quality of consumer-oriented websites addressing the second 
  trimester ultrasound examination is low. Health professionals need to 
  discuss this with expectant parents considering undergoing the examination. 
  There is a need for efforts that aim to improve the poor quality of online 
  sources in the field of prenatal examinations.

20. YouTube as a source of information for narcolepsy: A content-quality 
     and optimization analysis.
   Szmuda T, Özdemir C, Fedorow K, Ali S, Słoniewski P
  YouTube is the world's most popular video-sharing site that in recent years 
  has become an important platform for patients in finding educational 
  information about their disease. The purpose of this study was to assess the 
  quality and reliability of narcolepsy-related YouTube videos. We searched 
  the key terms "Narcolepsy", "Narcolepsy-cataplexy," "Narcolepsy excessive 
  daytime sleepiness" and "Narcolepsy excessive drowsiness" on YouTube. 80 
  videos were analyzed as they meet the inclusion criteria. Quantitative and 
  qualitative metrics were recorded and the videos were scored using the 
  DISCERN instrument by two independent raters. Our findings show that the 
  majority of videos contained clear information (84%), symptoms (78%) and 
  patient experience (69%). Most videos were published by an educational 
  channel not representing a hospital or clinic (41%) or by a patient 
  suffering from the disease (25%). Videos containing animations had a 
  statistically significant correlation between average daily views 
  (p = .0004) and the video power index (p = .0048), suggesting that this 
  feature increased the popularity among viewers. The mean DISCERN score was 
  27 ± 8, indicating that the quality of narcolepsy related-videos is poor. 
  Therefore, patients that use YouTube as an educational tool are currently 
  not attaining a comprehensive understanding of the disease. For this reason, 
  we have indicated the top 5 videos that physicians can recommend to their 
  patients. Our paper highlights the gaps of knowledge concerning narcolepsy 
  information on YouTube. Therefore, this information can be used to create 
  better educational content in the future.

21. German YouTubeTM videos a source of information on cutaneous 
     melanoma: A critical appraisal.
   Steeb T, Reinhardt L, Görgmayr C, Weingarten H, Doppler A, Brütting J, 
   Meier F, Berking C,
  YouTubeTM is an openly accessible video-sharing platform that is 
  increasingly used by melanoma patients to acquire disease-related 
  information. Dissemination of medical information through such a platform 
  may offer valuable opportunities, but also challenges as the quality of 
  unfiltered information posted may be of low scientific quality1 , or even be 
  misleading. Additionally, the credibility of the providers cannot be 
  verified.2-4 Moreover, little is known about the value of such videos. 
  Therefore, we aimed to identify YouTubeTM videos on melanoma and to assess 
  their quality, reliability, usability, and understandability.
