Jodi Philbrick, a lecturer at the University of North Texas, has been chosen as the co-lead instructor of the Medical Library Association Research Training Institute.
The institute was developed to improve the research capacity for practicing health sciences librarians.
The Medical Library Association formed a partnership with the Library of the Health Sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago, the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries and the Research Institute for Public Librarians. The group received funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences to support the research training.
Philbrick will meet her fellows at a week-long institute in July at the University of Illinois at Chicago. After that, she will provide personalized mentoring to help them complete their research projects.
