Did anyone else notice the new HORRIBLE thing that Slideshare did? I am shocked. I swear it was fine two days ago when I was using it, but now I am completely unable to get to a persistent URL page for any of our slide presentations. I went to my old blogposts that linked to them, and the embeds work, but the links are broken. I am distressed.

MINUTES: Today's Meeting July 10.  Attending: Andrea Kepsel & PF Anderson. 

Worked on finalizing the draft search strategy here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/17kYR2VxEliSxIO0XGmruflZKxJMyocC1ptM9B_3g9MI/edit#gid=1009373048

We tested & finalized the CONSENSUS column in tab 2 (Emerging) and tag 3 (Technologies). Testing was done 2 ways. 

1) Test various options for term in original search & our previous tests, comparing retrieval numbers for options, and how much the difference added in terms of sensitivity and specificity. Basically, if a term variant increased the number of citations retrieved by ~50% or more, but did not increase the number of relevant citations by close to the same amount, we opted to NOT include the term variant. 

2) We also tried combining the terms &/or variants with the parenthetical string (emerging OR innovation) to test for relevance. When doing these tests we found one term from the original search strategy which appeared to offer no value (experience), and which we pulled from the search strategy for this reason. 

3) Added bonus? Through doing both of the above, we discovered two additional term/concept groups that appeared to offer value but which did not appear in the original search. These were, in Tech, simulations, and in Emerging, improvement. I suspect there may be other similar terms that we haven't noticed. This is when doing some text mining of results for distinctive words not yet included might be useful. 

NEXT STEPS.

1) We really wanted to finalize the search today, but tab one, the MeSH terms, still has too many questionmarks about which headings should be in with category group. Everyone, please look and comment. 

2) Andrea will take the tab 2&3 consensus columns and assemble those into a search strategies that we will document in our Search Strategies folder. 

3) I will focus on the IRB process this coming week. 

4) I'm assuming we can have a final FINAL version of the base search strategy next week. We need final drafts for all four subteams. With those two components, we can cut back on the number of meetings, assign specific tasks, and hopefully move onward to the next phase. 

FINGERS CROSSED!

I'm sorry I missed the meeting.  I will take a look at the document.  Thanks for working on it.

Hi, all! Today not enough people showed up to accomplish anything, so this is a quick update on next steps. Next week is a major American holiday (Independence Day) so we will not have a meeting. The week after, my library is moving. I will TRY to make a meeting, but may not have internet. I will try to confirm the day before (Thursday). In the meantime, please review (edit) and comment on columns 2 and 3 of this spreadsheet!  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/17kYR2VxEliSxIO0XGmruflZKxJMyocC1ptM9B_3g9MI/edit?usp=drive_web

Pulling from the minutes for the discussion about the studying apps. This part:
* Partner with Cool Toys group
Best apps for studying
does a list already exist?
how to keep it updated?
where to host?
who is doing the research?
what is the scope?
poll students?
schedule a joint meeting to discuss?

This is AWESOME thinking, you all! What we were thinking of, just to start, was getting together and simply brainstorming or finding out what folk in this group find most useful, interesting, helpful, etc. For schedule a joint meeting, we were thinking of either the already scheduled June or July meetings, if that sounds alright?

Brief update! First, CHANGE of date for next week's meeting. Most of the regular crowd could not meet on Friday, so we will meet on Tuesday again next week, at 10AM Eastern Time. 

Now, what happened today. Mostly, we gave Tierney an update on recent developments, and reviewed draft search strategies for two subgroups. We also spent a chunk of time talking through the methodology conversation started here: 

https://plus.google.com/u/1/+PatriciaFAnderson/posts/48R7DdwiQeK

Part of what we talked about is how to streamline the "tech adoption assessment" process. We talked about taking that list and trying something where you start the review with the tests that are most successful in differentiating appropriate technologies, and then not necessarily continuing unless the evidence is unclear. So, for example:

If a specific tech shows up with lots of activity in grants, clinical trials, and has peer reviewed journals on the topic indexed in MEDLINE, then that is probably one we should know about. So we might start looking in those three places first. Pubmed analysis might come as a subsequent step, followed by some of the other ideas, and then saving Google to assess tech that we are told is important but which isn't having a strong showing in the other areas. I hope that's a fair way to describe the idea. Obviously, we need to test it out and firm this up. 

So, that's the short view for today's meeting! 

I was very tired and muddled, so my notes are sparse.

My apologies. I screwed up. Hopefully we can still iron out the document in time!

The meeting today was people-light, with tech issues for some, AND I was doublebooked with a cool intern presentation at the same time. The better part of valor seemed to be to call it off.

So, NEXT WEEK I want to get the strategy settled! All we need to do to finalize the base strategy is to agree on which MeSH terms go in which term set. I expect this to involve a fair amount of debate, and we truly need a broader group to provide input and create a genuinely fair reasoned consensus. 

In the meantime, I've had one meeting about IRB here, and am setting up a second one. It looks like we can probably get an exemption, but a fair amount of nitpicky things I need to do first. 

After that, what I'd like to do is cut back meeting to once a month, but have a project plan with tasks, assignments, and deadlines to work through the final part of the project. How does that sound? I'll be asking for help/consensus with the project plan, and of course we can modify it as we try things and find they need a change.

QUESTION: I'm not sure what this file is. I thought it was a copy of the original search methodology from the article, but it's been edited a couple times, which would indicate folk were correcting things or modifying for one of the groups? If this is the master original strategy, maybe we should lock it (if that's possible). Just wanted to confirm before fiddling with it.   https://docs.google.com/document/d/165pg4aviqFU2hzqo_1sdMyVbpn17exH4UiN4xftt2_k/edit#heading=h.gjdgxs

I've been brainstorming our adoptions levels. We had years and type of librarian, but I think we might want to possibly ID some relevant professional behaviors as part of our mapping: collection support, reference support, professional practice, etc.
