Many of our patrons know that our librarians offer consultations on topics such as literature searches, data science, and reputation management, but it might surprise them to know that those consultations average 1,500 per year.
 Further surprising might be the fact that, along with the librarians' cutting-edge research support services, the Library's Information Technology Team provides consultations to patrons on a variety of topics, such as:
  • Video production- our video production expert performs over 100 video production consults per year, helping both academic and hospital patrons to produce videos for clinical training, research presentations, academic training, patient education, grant proposals and much more: https://guides.hsl.virginia.edu/video-documentation 
  • Data support- the IT Team supports and participates in the Library’s Research and Data Services Department's data science consults and classes. Visit https://guides.hsl.virginia.edu/data/workshops to learn more about workshops that will be available in 2020, including new GIS and Python Jupyter notebook assistance.
  • Conferencing technology- the team has provided in-house support for over 70 web-based conference calls so far this year.


Recent IT Team achievements include:
  • Providing technical advice and support for Interventional Radiology’s “Patient Anxiety” study utilizing 360-video and VR technology. 

Dr. Haskal and members of the project team
If you think that our technical skills and experience might benefit your research, education, or clinical work, please request a consult at https://guides.hsl.virginia.edu/consultation-request . The IT team would love to hear from you.
