I'm new to working in hospital libraries.  (I have lots of experience as an instruction librarian in academic libraries.)
At my hospital librarians don't participate in rounds, but we will soon be doing outreach in the physicians' lounge.  (I have a laptop to do this.)

I'm planning on emphasizing our help with literature searches and finding  full text and also suggesting some helpful databases.

But I'm wondering, if you have done this kind of outreach, is there anything else you've done or offered that was particularly successful?  Or anything I should avoid?

Thanks much in advance!
