I am acknowledged in a good many, most of which (maybe all -- I didn't check) are in PubMed. I was going to email Annie directly but it appears examples are being shared with the whole list so here you go (usually it's only my name/credentials, but sometimes "medical librarian" is mentioned like "the good fortune of working with a medical librarian, Mark Vrabel, MLS, AHIP, the ONS Information Resources Supervisor."):

Subject: Examples of librarians being thanked in articles
I am looking for examples of librarians being thanked or acknowledged in an article. I have found wonderful literature on how using librarians improves the quality of articles, but I’m struggling to find an article where the librarian isn’t a co-author.
