Although the decision to merge libraries generates stress, it is also a great opportunity to start a global reflection on the functioning of libraries. In 2003, the University of Liège decided to create a new physical and functional structure by combining the previously independent libraries of Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, Botany, Zoology, Psychology and Educational Sciences. The initial phase included a plan to remove the collections and standardise the academic teaching of IT literacy in the various disciplines. We now want to question our missions and evaluate our present working procedures in order to optimise our services, eventually develop new ones, and make them visible through a new website or any other types of support. The different populations of users need to be clearly identified, evaluated and anticipated. Staff competences must be evaluated to guarantee that users' expectations are met, and possibly to envisage any new services that may need to be created. In addition, staff competences must be improved through adapted education and tailored professional training. At the same time, the library involvement in academic teaching deserves to be properly highlighted. We are aware that there is not anything new in such an approach, but the pieces of evidence are scattered, outdated or not adapted to our present situation. As a consequence, we propose an overview of the literature concerning the marketing of academic libraries, conducted according to the principles of Evidence-Based Library and Information Practice. We shall select the most important publications providing strong theoretical support, and we shall collect existing tools, evaluation grids and procedure rules that might be useful during any step of the project. We shall organise them into a structured and pragmatic working strategy that could be used by any library interested in a marketing approach. It should integrate the different topics previously mentioned such as the library’s missions, the evaluation and optimisation of services, as well as the visibility of the teaching activities and the professional education programmes developed by academic libraries.

Parietal, appendiceal, pleuropulmonary and diaphragmatic endometriosis represent 5% of endometriosis cases. Diagnosis and management of these extra-genital localisations are described according to the literature. Parietal endometriosis usually requires large resection of the tumor. Appendiceal endometriosis is frequently observed in cases of digestive endometriosis. Induration or rigidity of the appendix due to the presence of deep infiltrating endometriosis justifies appendicectomy. Thoracic and diaphragmatic endometriosis is characterized by the presence of typical symptoms during the perimenstrual periode. Medical treatment obtaining therapeutic amenorrhea is firstly administered and surgery is indicated in cases of symptoms recurrence. [less ▲]

Problem-based learning has been introduced at the University of Liège for four years now. The medical library was committed with the organisation of different activities (60 hours/2 years), starting with the control of basic computer litteracy, continuing with an analysis of the structure of the different document types used for scientific communication as well as the discovery of both traditional and electronic medical libraries, to end with guidelines for information retrieval. Such courses requested new approaches and several difficulties had to be taken into consideration including : 1. The transfer of skills rather than kowledge. Some theoretical bases have to be taught before practicing. But the students mostly need to be challenged with different situations requesting different approaches of litterature searching. 2. The course is given before the students feel the need of it. The librarians enconter the students during the first semester of the second year before the students are asked to search the medical litterature to build their own knowledge about clinical matters. 3. The absence of motivation. Second year medical students are focused on major courses in basic and preclinical sciences. 4. Large group teaching (n ≥ 300). All the sections of the medical Faculty are concerned. 5. Inadequate logistic support. Small sized computer rooms do not allow the organization of very many parallel hand-on sessions. 6. Insufficient teaching staffs. Distance learning tools were used to develope online activities complementary to face to face teaching. They are focused on practice. Links to the theory are provided but only when they are indispensable. Many quizzes are also proposed in order to trigger critical mind and auto-evaluation. By January 2005, a first cycle will be completed from the beginning of the course to the final examination. We plan to survey students from every section in order to evaluate the impact of this new teaching strategy. Their observations will be reported as well as our conclusions and suggestions for possible improvements. [less ▲]

At the University of Liege, the medical library recently merged with several entities including the libraries of Zoology, Botany, Psychology and Veterinary Medicine. Everywhere, the librarians are involved in teaching activities and users training programs are rather well developped in every field. But the comparison of the curriculum contents points to a few amazing differences. The most surprising one is the approach of Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM). The concept is well introduced in the medical community and it is a legal obligation for the medical students to be thaught in and to practice EBM. Surprisingly, the veterinarians don't seem very interested. Besides its impact on clinical practice, EBM is a good opportunity to create new habits that are valuable for continuing education and to develop critical appraisal skills. Thus, we wish to analyze the reasons that might explain why EBM seems to be left aside at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. Two approaches are envisionned. First, we plan to ask the Faculty itself about its position regarding the concept. Surveys and interviews will be conducted, distinguishing between the general practitionners, the researchers and the teaching staff. On the other hand, an in depth analysis will be conducted regarding the media available at the veterinary library. Are they suited to the practice of EBM? If not, which additional tools should be purchased ? At the end of the process, we expect to be able to adapt the content of the training sessions we offer to library users and possibly to improve the collaboration with the veterinary teaching staff.

The continuing education is a challenge for health care professionals, considering the growing amount and variable quality of information in this field. In this context, we developed a method allowing clinicians to have a centralised access to the best current medical evidence supporting medical decision-making. Relevant data has been gathered according to the rules stated for Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) and organised in a free-of-charge Web site, created by using common software applications. The general aim of our study was to encourage individual practice of EBM by providing tutorials as well as a selection of free access tools for searching medical information on the Web. In addition to the education part, we provided clinicians, through a Web interface, with up-to-date, accurate and quality data obtained from heterogeneous sources and presented in a full text format when available. The developed methodology has been applied to human prostate cancer. URL address: http://www.ebm.lib.ulg.ac.be/prostate/index.htm. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.

Les missions confiées par le Recteur de l'Université de Liège au groupe de travail chargé de rédiger ce rapport étaient : • Organiser le mieux et le plus rapidement possible le développement du numérique dans les bibliothèques ; • Apporter des solutions aux problèmes d’essaimage des budgets et des ressources humaines. Pour répondre à ces objectifs, le Groupe de travail a commencé par relever les principaux jalons de l’évolution historique de l’informatisation dans les bibliothèques de l’Université. Il s’est ensuite attaché à évaluer l’état actuel de la numérisation dans le réseau des bibliothèques de l’Université par rapport aux développements numériques du secteur. Face à cet état des lieux, il présente des pistes pour accélérer et renforcer la numérisation des bibliothèques. Enfin, pour permettre la mise en œuvre de ce projet, il propose en conclusion des mesures à prendre au niveau de la réorganisation des bibliothèques en termes de locaux et de personnel. [less ▲]

With Evidence-Based Medicine, shared decision making is attracting considerable interest as a means by which patient preferences can be incorporated into clinical decisions. Patients cannot express informed preferences unless they are given sufficient and appropriate information, including a detailed explanation concerning their condition, the different therapeutic options and the likely outcomes with and without treatment. A patient education leaflet is a potentially powerful tool for communicating information to patients, who will be able to participate in the process of decision making. The present article is a review of available guides for the writing of patient information materials. It also includes criteria for evaluating their quality. [less ▲]

We are entitled to state that our knowledge about the IGF system has literally exploded in the last years. Having been considered for some time merely as trophic and mitogenic factors, the IGFs now appear as molecules essential for the differentiation of many cell types, and even more so, as powerful protective agents for the nervous and the cardiovascular systems. However, these properties so beneficial in normal physiological conditions, are subverted by the cancerous cells who use them to extend their life span and resist therapy. The IGFs did not live up to expectations in the treatment of diabetes; however, today their capacity to improve the condition of patients suffering from severe neurological, renal or muscle diseases is tested. The IGF system might also be targetted by the anticancer treatments. In the following paper we have briefly summarized our knowledge on the IGF system, and presented in more detail the recent data.

Problem-Based Learning is an educational method which uses health care scenarios to provide a context for learning and to elaborate knowledge through discussion. Additional expectations are to stimulate critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and to develop clinical reasoning taking into account the patient's psychosocial environment and preferences, the economic requirements as well as the best evidence from biomedical research. Appearing at the end of the 60's, it has been adopted by 10% of medical schools world-wide. PBL follows the same rules as Evidence-Based Medicine but is student-centered and provides the information-seeking skills necessary for self-directed life long learning. In this short article, we review the theoretical basis and process of PBL, emphasizing the teacher-student relationship and discussing the suggested advantages and disadvantages of this curriculum. Students in PBL programs make greater use of self-selected references and online searching. From this point of view, PBL strengthens the role of health libraries in medical education, and prepares the future physician for Evidence-Based Medicine. [less ▲]

Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) can be defined as the use of best current evidence from clinical research in making decisions about the care of individual patients. It consists of a process of turning clinical problems into questions and then locating the best available evidence to answer them, critically appraising the evidence for its validity and usefulness, and applying the findings to clinical practice. The present article presents the EBM principles and their application to diagnostic and therapeutic questions.
