A Case Study: Planning a Statewide Information Resource for Health Professionals: An Evidence-Based Approach (Report)

STATEMENT OF THE CASE Area-wide electronic health libraries (eHLs) that provide broad access to clinical-level information–such as electronic books, journals, guidelines, and drug information–are becoming more common on national and international levels. The growing number of eHLs reflects the increased awareness that health professionals require access to the latest evidence-based information in order to provide quality care. In response to this recognized need, the Health Sciences Libraries (HSL) at the University of Minnesota conducted an evidence-based feasibility study between January and September 2008 to determine the best approach for implementing an eHL that would serve all health professionals in Minnesota. The work was guided by the mission of the Minnesota eHL project, which was to foster clinical excellence by providing equitable access to quality, evidence-based health information for all of Minnesota’s health practitioners, researchers, and students and to provide accurate health information to every citizen of Minnesota so they can become engaged in the patient-care partnership and make informed decisions.
