October 19, 2009 - Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) will be hosting two workshops – “Nursing on the Net” and “Grants and Proposal Writing” – on Thursday, November 12, 2009.

“Nursing on the Net” will be held from 9 a.m. until noon in Auditorium 101 inside the LMU-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (LMU-DCOM) building on the LMU campus in Harrogate, Tenn. “Grants and Proposal Writing” will be held from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. in LMU-DCOM Auditorium 101. Both workshops qualify for Medical Library Association CE credit.

“Nursing on the Net” is a hands-on workshop designed for librarians responsible for information services to the Nursing and Allied Health professions. Participants will learn to use and evaluate web-based health information resources, find online news services, continuing online education courses and consumer health web sites. Participants will also learn to search the National Library of Medicine's MEDLINE database of over 18 million citations using the PubMed interface. The workshop will also cover MedlinePlus, the National Library of Medicine's web site for consumer health information.

“Grants and Proposal Writing” is designed for beginning grant proposal writers. The class presents a general overview of the grant and funding processes as well as the level of detail required in a successful proposal. Each component of the grant writing process will be addressed, including: documenting the need; identifying the target population; writing measurable objectives; and developing a work plan, an evaluation plan and dissemination plan.

Both workshops will be taught by Sheila Snow-Croft, outreach education coordinator for the National Network of Libraries of Medicine/Southeastern Atlantic (NN/LM SE/A). The workshops are free but registration is encouraged. To register or for more information, contact LMU Medical and Allied Health Librarian Lisa Travis at (423) 869-7132 or
