Galter Health Sciences Library Joins NUCATSFriday, May 10, 2013 -
We are very pleased to announce that the Galter Health Sciences Library is joining the NU Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (NUCATS).
“This is a great opportunity for both Galter and NUCATS,” said Donald Lloyd-Jones, MD, ScM, Senior Associate Dean for Clinical and Translational Research, Chair, Department of Preventive Medicine, and Director, Northwestern University Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (NUCATS). “The relationship will significantly strengthen overall NUCATS offerings and allow both entities to provide more integrated support to students, clinicians and researchers.” The Galter Health Sciences Library’s mission is to support the research, education, and patient care missions of the Feinberg School of Medicine and Northwestern Medicine institutions. “We’re very excited by this union. Many of the services provided by Galter, including support and collaboration in the areas of bioinformatics, evidence-based research, and systematic reviews, are complementary to those offered by NUCATS,” said Heidi Nickisch Duggan, MA, MS, Interim Director, Galter Health Sciences Library. “Bringing the Galter Library into NUCATS is just the first of several planned initiatives that will strengthen and expand the library’s capabilities in support of clinical care and research.” Other planned initiatives include remodeling of the Galter Library physical space and the initiation of a national search for a Director.
The new structure will also strengthen the ties between the library and the Division of Health and Biomedical Informatics within the Department of Preventive Medicine, headed by Dr. Justin Starren, MD, PhD, FACMI.
The NUCATS Institute is an integral link in Northwestern University’s clinical and translational research enterprise, accelerating translational innovation by providing research teams with consultative resources and expertise. It launched in 2007 and received a $30 million CTSA grant from NIH in 2008. NUCATS provides a wide array of clinical and translational science resources and services to Northwestern University and its clinical affiliates. The Galter Health Sciences Library improves and enhances health care through innovation and leadership in the organization, and through the delivery, management and use of quality information to support educational, research, and patient care needs. It is a Resource Library of the National Networks of Libraries of Medicine and is a member of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation and the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois.
Alignment activities have already begun and the transition will be completed by September 2013.
