The Journal of the Medical Library Association (JMLA) Virtual Projects Section Advisory Committee is seeking current, innovative and notable technology projects in health sciences libraries for the 2022 JMLA Virtual Projects Section. The Virtual Project Section appears on an annual basis in the October issue of JMLA and recognizes projects that exemplify the range and direction of current technology developments in the dissemination of health sciences information.
To be considered for the Virtual Projects Section, submit a 200 word abstract of your virtual project, including why it is innovative/notable, and provide relevant online project resources (if possible) that describe or demonstrate the project. Find more information about the submission process and author guidelines for Virtual Projects. Send your submissions to the Virtual Projects Section Co-Editor, Emily Hurst at firstname.lastname@example.org, by Wednesday, April 20, 2022.
Technology projects must have been completely implemented within the past two years. Submissions of virtual projects may demonstrate either the implementation of a new technology or a new application of an older technology. These projects should demonstrate how libraries have leveraged technology to manage and create new collections and services to improve user communities. Examples of current technology trends of interest include but are not limited to:
- Artificial Intelligence
- Digital Diversity Inclusion & Access
- Hybrid or HyFlex Workplace or Instruction
- Online Service Solutions
- Online Teaching including Micro-credentialing
- Privacy & Security
Please consider sharing your knowledge and experience implementing a new technology to contribute value to your library and encourage and guide your library colleagues!
