Informationists

As a key partner in the UM health sciences community, the Library integrates itself into the teaching, learning, and research activities of faculty, students, and staff through tailored and innovative information programs and services.  An informationist provides information expertise, consultation, research, and knowledge management in a specialized subject domain.
  • Informationists are partners with faculty in their domains, actively contributing to research proposals and projects, curriculum development and revision, evidence-based clinical decision making, and outreach to the surrounding community.
     
  • Informationists are strongly affiliated with the academic and clinical departments in their subject areas, moving beyond the traditional library reference model to be an active partner in education and research, and contributing to departmental committees and projects.
