Description: A growing number of librarians are filling a special niche in the information world: serving those who work with genetic and molecular biology information.  Bioinformatics research advances in such areas as gene therapy, personalized medicine, drug discovery, the inherited basis of complex diseases influenced by multiple gene/environmental interactions, and the identification of the molecular targets for environmental mutagens and carcinogens have wide ranging implications for the medical and consumer health sectors (Rein, 2006). In this one-hour Webinar, librarians reflect on the practice and future of this specialized and uniquely valuable role of the librarian providing bioinformatics support. Dr. Bonnie Maidak of the National Center for Biotechnology Information facilitates.

Facilitator:

Dr. Bonnie Maidak, PhD, MLS, National Center for Biotechnology Information, National Library of Medicine.

Guest Speakers:

Kumru E. Kastro, MS, MI is the Liaison Librarian for Biology, Chemistry, Department of Biodiversity, Earth and Environmental Science, and first-year Engineering at Drexel University. Kumru is responsible for building library collections and teaching information and research skills to faculty and students.

Elliott Smith, MLIS is the Emerging Technologies & Bioinformatics Librarian at UC Berkeley, where he is currently supports the students and faculty of the Departments of Molecular & Cell Biology and Integrative Biology. He received a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from the University of Chicago and a Master of Library and Information Science from San Jose State University. When he’s not thinking about science he rereads Jane Austen.
