Tonight’s #ukmedlibs Twitter chat

We’re ready to go! Logon to Twitter at 8 pm tonight, Tuesday 19 May, to discuss the Health Education England Library and Knowledge Service Development Framework. Copies of the full Framework and a short briefing may be downloaded at http://hee.nhs.uk/work-programmes/library-and-knowledge-services/

We’ll ask everyone to tweet a brief introduction and then we’ll structure the discussion around these questions; they’re not exclusive, so if there’s another aspect of the Framework you want to discuss, feel free to raise it.

  1. Purpose (section 2) and vision (section 3). Are these right?
  2. What do  ‘proactive customer focused knowledge services’ mean to you?
  3. Quick and easy access to knowledge: we have the technology, as they say, how do we apply it?
  4. Effective leadership, planning and development of the LKS workforce: what’s the first thing you’d redesign in your role?
  5. Optimising investment: what needs to happen to make LKS funding sustainable?
  6. Measuring success: there’s some tough targets here, to be achieved in three years. Which are the easy ones, which the hardest, and how do we achieve them?
  7. What next steps will you take in your organisation to make the transformation happen?

The discussion will finish at 9 pm.

The tweets will be archived on Symplur and a transcript will be made available shortly afterwards.

If you’ve never participated in a Twitter chat before, this guidance, from our friends who run the #uklibchat chat, may be useful
