En bref, tous les établissements d'une même région administrative ont été fusionnés. Par exemple, dans la région de Lanaudière, six établissements ont été réunis pour en former un seul : le Centre de santé et de services sociaux de Lanaudière. Le regroupement inclut plus de 61 installations dispersées sur un territoire de plus de 12 000 km2. Comme les services de santé et de services sociaux de la région, les cinq bibliothèques du CISSS de L:anaudière ont également dû fusionner.&nbsp;&nbsp;Cet article fait le point sur chacune des étapes qui ont été franchies pour arriver à créer la nouvelle bibliothèque fusionnée du CISSS Lanaudière. Premièrement, l'équipe des bibliothèques a dû faire face à la réorganisation de la structure organisationnelle et administrative, revoir les responsabilités, les possibilités budgétaires et la mission des bibliothèques. Toutes les collections ont été fusionnées, physiquement réunies dans des espaces communs, mais aussi dans un unique système intégré de gestion de bibliothèque. Les nouvelles réalités du CISSS de Lanaudière, ont aussi mené à une réévaluation de l'offre de service des bibliothèques et à la création de nouveaux services en ligne.</p> 2019-11-13T00:00:00-07:00 Copyright (c) 2019 https://journals.library.ualberta.ca/jchla/index.php/jchla/article/view/29410 Making space for Indigenous knowledge translation activities in Canadian health librarianship 2019-12-03T07:48:10-07:00 Eleri Staiger-Williams eleristaiger@gmail.com Adair Harper adair.harper@gmail.com <p><strong>Abstract</strong></p> <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> In 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action 22 called upon “those who can effect change within the Canadian health-care system to recognize the value of Aboriginal healing practices” <strong><em><sup>1</sup></em></strong>. Given that research has shown that health librarians have this ability to help affect change in the healthcare system, how does the health library literature reflect shifting professional practice that make space for Indigenous peoples and knowledge?</p> <p><strong>Methods:</strong> In this literature review, we searched for keywords and controlled terms, or subject headings, on Indigenous topics within three key North American health library journals: the Journal of the Canadian Health Libraries Association (JCHLA) (indexed in CINAHL); the Journal of the Medical Library Association (JMLA) (Ovid MEDLINE); and Medical Reference Services Quarterly (MSRQ) (Ovid MEDLINE). A modified version of Smylie et al’s<sup>2</sup> model of critical self-reflection guided by Indigenous knowledge translation principles was then used to analyse the papers and suggest potential avenues for future research.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>Our initial search retrieved 8 articles from JMLA, 2 from MRSQ, and 14 from JCHLA which our exclusion criteria reduced to 5 articles that were then qualitatively analyzed. Of these only two articles reflected a more substantial engagement with Indigenous knowledge translation practices.</p> <p><strong>Discussion: </strong>Most of the articles did not explicitly engage in self-reflection about how their personal, professional or systemic privileges and biases impact their work with Indigenous health topics.</p> 2019-11-08T00:00:00-07:00 Copyright (c) 2019 https://journals.library.ualberta.ca/jchla/index.php/jchla/article/view/29423 Using Authentic Assessment in Information Literacy Programs: Tools, Techniques, and Strategies 2019-12-03T07:47:44-07:00 Siu Hong Yu shy@queensu.ca 2019-11-08T00:00:00-07:00 Copyright (c) 2019 https://journals.library.ualberta.ca/jchla/index.php/jchla/article/view/29425 Book Review-Reaching Diverse Audiences with Virtual Reference and Instruction 2019-12-03T07:46:54-07:00 Andrew Mikel Moore andrew.moore@fraserhealth.ca 2019-11-08T00:00:00-07:00 Copyright (c) 2019 https://journals.library.ualberta.ca/jchla/index.php/jchla/article/view/29424 LinkedIn Learning Product Review 2019-12-03T07:47:19-07:00 Megan Robin Kennedy megan.kennedy@usask.ca <p>NA</p> 2019-11-08T00:00:00-07:00 Copyright (c) 2019 https://journals.library.ualberta.ca/jchla/index.php/jchla/article/view/29433 Mark your calendars for the CHLA/ABSC 2020 Conference in Niagara Falls, ON – 20/20 Vision! 2019-12-03T07:46:02-07:00 Lisa Battistella battistel@hhsc.ca Jessica Babineau Jessica.Babineau@uhn.ca 2019-11-08T00:00:00-07:00 Copyright (c) 2019
