The video contest was designed to educate health professionals and the general public about the essential role medical librarians play in the successful roll out of information solutions to their patrons
The success of rolling out evidence-based practice and other resources relies heavily on the best practices and essential advice of the health science librarians and information specialists. To raise awareness of the important role of the medical librarian, Wolters Kluwer is pleased to announce the winners of its 2014, "Secrets to Successful Rollouts: Revealed!" video contest.
Each 3-minute video tells the story about how the librarian introduced evidence-based resources to their institution's students, clinicians or researchers to support decision-making on patient care and healthcare learning. The 2014 winners include:
- First Place: JBI Lunch & Launch at Scotiabank Health Sciences Library, St. Michael's Hospital (Ontario, Canada); $5,000 USD.
- Second Place: My Secret…, Lavery Library/ St. John Fisher College (New York, USA); $2,500 USD

"We would like to offer our congratulations to all of the participating librarians for the incredible videos they put together for this competition," said Cathy Wolfe, President & CEO of Wolters Kluwer Health, Medical Research. "This year's contest offers some valuable best practice learning for our medical librarian community, while also promoting the important role they have in supporting decision-making on improved patient care, treatment and research."
The video contest was designed to give medical librarians and information professionals a place to educate health professionals and the general public about the essential role medical librarians play in the successful roll out of information solutions to their patrons.
