Jackie Phinney, Liaison Librarian to Dalhousie Medicine New Brunswick, and Lucille (Lucy) Kiester, Liaison Librarian at McGill University Library, will be awarded $1,000 to help support their project, Are Canadian medicine librarians directly supporting medical student health and wellness? A nation-wide survey.

In their proposal, Jackie and Lucy propose to explore if/how undergraduate medical education liaison librarians in Canada are supporting medical student wellness, as well as if these efforts are being promoted directly to students. Their methodology is intended to provide a current snapshot of what medical liaisons are currently doing in regard to student wellness.

The CAUL-CBUA Collaborative Research Grant is intended to encourage collaborative research by librarians and staff working in academic libraries in the region through projects which involve structured, evidence-based research. We are pleased to continue offering support to researchers in the region and look forward to the results of Jackie and Lucy’s study.
