Increasing our Library's Value with DALRs The Maguire Medical Library (MML) at the Florida State University has been developing a unique service for faculty and other researchers who need advanced, long-term assistance using a variety of library resources. Because such research projects typically involve formulating various search strategies, searching several library databases in-depth, and collecting, managing and sharing citations, the MML DALR program uses a team approach to meet researchers' needs. With a team approach, the time and skills of librarians, researchers in the College of Medicine's academic departments, and associates for library research embedded within each department complement each other efficiently and effectively. The poster describes how the research team concept evolved, and features examples of the project documentation, such as the participation requirements for the departmental associates for library research (DALRs). Viewers of this poster will hopefully be able to determine if a team approach to library research might be useful in their own work environments.
