Reminder – SEAside Webinar – Navigating the Institutional Review Board for Librarianship Research – July 27, 2016

Date/Time: Wednesday, July 27, 2016 12:00 – 1:30 PM ET

Presenter: Carolyn Schubert, MLIS, Health Sciences & Nursing Librarian, Rose Library, James Madison University.

Co-Sponsor: MACMLA Research and Assessment Committee

Contact: For additional information or questions about this webinar, please contact Tony Nguyen.

Summary: Librarians are encountering more opportunities to conduct original research and contribute to evidence based practices, but only 26% believe they have the educational training to conduct these tasks (Kennedy & Brancolini, 2012). One key step in this process is navigating an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to assure participants are treated in an ethical manner. What does it mean to protect research participants today? What does an IRB look for? What tips, tricks, and best practices can save you time with this process? Discussion of these questions and more are the focus of this webinar.

Presenter Bio: Carolyn Schubert is the Health Sciences & Nursing Librarian at James Madison University. She received her MLIS from San Jose State University in 2009. Her research interests include the scholarship of teaching and learning in nursing and health sciences, especially biomedical informatics and evidence based practice, and research and assessment of librarianship. She is currently a member of JMU’s Institutional Review Board. She also participated in the 2015 Institute for Research Design in Librarianship.

Upon completion of the Beyond the SEA Webinar, each participant will receive 1.5 hours of continuing education credit awarded by the Medical Library Association. Certificates will be available electronically following completion of the online survey supplied at the end of the webinar.
