New Jersey Law Librarians Association
Feeling Good About Medical Legal Research
Presented by Caroline Young, NJLLA Vice-President/President-Elect & Reference and Technology Librarian, Rutgers School of Law – Newark
Most law librarians will be asked to perform medical or health-related research during the course of their careers. This program will provide an introduction to locating and evaluating medical information. Topics will include: defining evidence-based medicine, applying the methods of evidence-based medicine to the process of medical research, and evaluating retrieved information. Effective searching of MEDLINE, using the controlled vocabulary MeSH (the National Library of Medicine’s Medical Subject Headings), will also be covered.

Community Service Project
The Community Service Committee will be collecting “forever” stamps, greeting cards, envelopes and stationery for the Stamp Out Despair campaign. This cause is sponsored by First Friends, a group that visits those who are held in immigration detention in New Jersey, and the donations are used to assist detainees in writing letters.
