Strategic Planning to Support CTSA Institutions
Attendance at this workshop is limited to librarians and other personnel from institutions with a current Clinical and Translation Science Award or with a CTSA application pending or in the planning stages. Space is limited so please register early to assure a space in this workshop.
The purpose of the session will be to participate in brainstorming about how librarians currently are or can become actively involved with CTSA key functions, CTSA administration, grant applications, research output and impact tracking, community engagement, and other CTSA initiatives. A report based on the strategic planning session will be prepared and distributed to the librarians who attend the planning workshop; library directors at CTSA funded institutions in the NN/LM SCR region and to CTSA administrators. The anticipated outcome of the strategic planning process will be a roadmap for librarian contributions and engagement with the work of the CTSAs.
