Congratulations to Debra Berlanstein and Rolando Gracia Milian our 2 recipients of the Jay Daly Technology Award!

Debra Berlanstein, Hirsh Health Sciences Library at Tufts University

Debra requested $1,000 to go toward the purchase a 48 inch panel screen and software, to be used as an infoscreen at the library service desk to display library information such as workshop schedules, events, blogs and twitter feeds.
She will assess the success of this purchase by engaging the Student Library Advisory Committee to survey constituents after 6 months to see how effective the new screen has been. She will present the results of that survey at the NAHSL 2016 Annual meeting.

Rolando Garcia Milian, Cushing/Whitney Medical Library at Yale University

Rolando requested $984.00 to promote the adoption of Cytoscape freeware for visualization and analysis of diverse omics (genomics, transcripiomics, metabolomics, etc.) data. Rolando will collaborate with the Bioinformationist from the Taubman Health Sciences Library at the University of Michigan to train faculty and librarians at Yale as well as NAHSL members on the use of Cytoscape.  The training session will be free. He will assess the success of his project by collecting feedback through an assessment form.  Rolando will present at the NAHSL 2016 annual meeting and write a short paper for publication in a professional peer-reviewed journal.
