Abstract

The Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) revised their standards for MD program curricula with increased emphasis on the teaching and assessment of skills needed for life-long learning. This case study describes the collaboration between a team of librarians and a curriculum office to continuously improve information-seeking skills activities for medical students. This positive collaborative experience has firmly embedded librarians into the medical curriculum. Based on student feedback, the majority of students found the librarian-involved activities useful.
